Within the past few years the terms "discovery" and "inquiry" have come into vogue in educational circles. These terms, and those of similar connotation, are found in science curriculum programs, magazine and journal articles, and papers presented at professional meetings. It has also become apparent that certain textbook publishers are extremely sensitive to the "in" terms; one finds that such words have been carefully inserted into the introduction or preface of some outdated science textbooks.
