Made to Stick & Inquiry

I picked up the book Made to Stick after reading about it on the Presentation Zen blog. As with all the books I read now that I like, I checked out the author blog and decided to subscribe. The book, and the blog, are very teacher friendly. Seeking to answer the questions Why do some ideas thrive while others die? And how do we improve the chances of worthy ideas?, the information they present can surely help any teacher make his/her lessons stickier. In fact, the authors often talk about how to their strategies in the classroom.

Several of their recent blog posts caught my attention. Check out Oceanography, Amplified; 100 Books for 100 Stories; and The Screaming Man in the Four Stroke Engine.

The strategies they present seem very much like those used in an inquiry-based approach. Check it out and see if you agree.
