Inquiry Models
Focus on Inquiry (Alberta Model). n.p., n.d. Web. 23 April, 2011.
This is an extensive PDF document about the Alberta Inquiry Model. I think this will be very helpful if my school ever decides to use this inquiry model in the future. I found this tool in Kym Kramer's Information Inquiry for School Teachers class in Fall 2009. The strength of this tool is the detail and its authority - I believe this is the defining document of this model. A weakness is that I couldn't just hand this to teachers. I know that they would not read the whole thing, so it would be up to me to summarize the model.

Big 6. Big6, 2010. Web. 23 April, 2011.
This is a site about the Big 6 inquiry model, which, according to virtualinquiry.com the most popular inquiry model. It provides lesson plans, handouts, worksheets, graphic organizers, and more. I would definitely pass this site along to teachers if the school decided to use this model. I found this tool through the virtualinquiry.com site. A strength of this tool is that its the official site of this model, so you can trust its authority and accuracy. This is an extremely useful site, and I love the amount of resources it provides, but it might be limiting because its so structured and discourage teachers and/or librarians from tailoring an inquiry model to fit their needs.

I-Search. eduScapes, 2010. Web. 23 April, 2011.
This site provides links to articles about the I-Search inquiry model. This is the model that I'm most familiar with, so this site is especially useful for me and my teachers at my school, and this site might do a better job of explaining this inquiry model than I'm capable of. I found this site by searching for "I-Search inquiry model" in Google. This site is great because of the amount of information it provides about I-Search, but it would be nice if there was an "official" site to use as well.

8Ws. eduScapes, 2010. Web. 23 April, 2011.
This site provides information about the 8Ws inquiry model, created by Annette Lamb in the early 1990s. I don't think I would use this inquiry model with high school students, but if I ever worked with younger students I think this model would be great. I found this site by searching for "8Ws inquiry model" in Google. I love that this site is simple and easy to navigate and something that teachers would be willing to read through, and I really don't see any weaknesses.
