Enquiry Learning for new KS3

All of the titles in the new KS3 toolkit feature an ENQUIRY question as a focus for the unit.
It would also make sense (as some colleagues do) to have an enquiry question as the basis for every lesson. I think that idea has some legs... Pity that my energy levels don't...

David Rogers, a colleague on the GA Secondary Phase Committee has produced a very useful resource on teaching using ENQUIRY.
This presents some excellent ideas for using Enquiry as a basis for lessons which I intend to develop a little more into my KS3 thinking...

Check it out, and then tell David how useful you found it...
This also has a place in the new KS3 planning support conferences I think...

Try to think of some other LANDSCAPE based enquiry questions - it's not difficult..
