Session 3: Inquiry: Rudolfo Anaya

Jorge Arredondo integrates inquiry into his classroom by encouraging students to formulate and pursue personal questions about Rudolfo Anaya's Bless Me, Ultima. Arredondo stimulates questioning, discussion, and research by taking the class to see a mural -- created during the same era in which the book was written -- that depicts struggles by Mexican Americans.

Session 3: Inquiry: James Baldwin

Bo Wu uses an inquiry approach to help students understand three works by James Baldwin. Sparked by their personal interests, the students research topics related to these works and collaborate to produce group Web sites.
