About the Contributors

“This book is dedicated to all the 'RIP~ers,' both teacher AND student learners, who have ignored the risks and taken this challenging journey on the rigorous path to make changes in their thinking practices and actions within the walls of the classroom and beyond.

Applauded also are the inquiry practitioners who are the authors in this book for their perseverance as well as their desire to share with their colleagues how they went about adjusting their teaching that led to the exemplary successes they have enjoyed using the RIP® model of scientific inquiry as a classroom instructional tool. This book is their story and is therefore also dedicated to them and their students.”

—Robert E. Landsman, PhD
