 Inquiry Phase: Wonder

At the beginning of the Wonder Phase, a student may ask:

  • What intriguing questions do I have about the topic or idea?
  • Why am I doing this research?
  • What do I expect to find?


  • Develops and refines questions.
  • Recognizes purpose for inquiry.
  • Makes predictions about the kind of information needed to answer the questions and
    the sources that will be most likely to have that information.
  • Forms tentative thesis or hypothesis to guide research.

Before moving to the Investigate Phase, a student may ask:

  • Can my question(s) be answered through investigation?
  • Will my question(s) lead me to answers that will fulfill my assignment or purpose for research?
