Some good resources, but not worth the money. Most of the links do not work. The discrepant events are ok. The text Inquiry Alive comes as part of the purchase, but the writing feels disjointed and is tough to follow. Overall really disappointed.
I read Dr. Bruce's other inquiry books after my major professor used a discrepant event inquiry, "The Samurai Crab," in class from Mindtronics: Science, Social Studies Inquiry Alive! I loved the discrepant events, but never got a chance to practice inquiry teaching. Thanks to the latest edition, I use Mindtronics! and Inquiry Alive! in my classroom nearly every day. When I first started teaching with inquiry, it was a lot harder than I thought it would be, yet it's incredibly worthwhile! Dr. Bruce's books, I thought at first, were too confident, nervy really, that students, my students, from all backgrounds and with different learning abilities, could learn any topic using inquiry skills, but my students have proven him right. A Japanese teacher, while vacationing, asked me if I thought the inquiries were too liberal and too political. I thought they were impartial. The Japanese teacher told me that she used the inquiries about Japan. She told me that she knew a teacher in Texas who knew Dr. Bruce, and said his books had too much to do with evolution, and she would never read another book by Dr. Bruce. I found fault only with the typos that the book claims as pdf errors. I never thought I would like a so-called ebook, but I now have a thing about being able to quickly find a page, and enlarge the print. I thought I was an experienced teacher beyond the need for a textbook by some old timer Texas professor, except now I have a deeper understanding about how to interest my students in even the mind-numbing subjects, as a result of not giving up on inquiry, and Mindtronics! and Inquiry Alive!

In the mid eighties I first came across the strategy known as discrepant event inquiry in a book by William and Jean Bruce. Discrepant Event Inquiry is a teaching strategy built around intellectual confrontation. From my senior high government and economic classes to my current seventh grade history classes, it is one of the most motivational teaching strategies that I have ever used.
In this strategy, the teacher presents students with a puzzling, paradoxical, or discrepant event/story at the beginning of a lesson. Students ask questions, pose hypotheses, analyze and synthesize information, and draw tentative conclusions while attempting to find an answer to the puzzle. By engaging students in hypothesizing and working together to solve a puzzle, inquiry serves as a strategy for higher order thinking as well as an excellent means of investing student in the content to come. Inquiry is used in order to motivate students to begin thinking about a new unit, idea, or concept that you will be dealing with in your lesson.
Discrepant-event inquiry is a natural for social studies, history and science classes. Mindtronics contains descriptions of the strategy and 100 inquiries in the social sciences, history, and science. As teachers know, the Internet provides a new and unlimited opportunity for gathering information for lessons. Mindtronics contains live links to dozens of Internet sites for each discrepant event inquiry.
With the 100 inquiries, the live links, and the clear description of the strategy, Mindtronics is an excellent and important resource for the social studies and science teacher.

I am a former student of Dr. Bruce and by accident read Mindtronics! and Inquiry Alive! in preparation and review before my class was to do an in-class model of discrepant event. I thought Dr. Bruce was a little out there until I began to read the book... I realized that this man is not only brilliant - but he is a gifted and wonderful teacher - heart and soul. The ideas that are presented in this book are "out of the box" and they are not the same old boring teaching that all of us have encountered in the public schools. If you want to engage children, challenge them, and get them thinking critically then you will want to read this book and explore for yourself the ideas and models that Dr. Bruce and his wife share in this enlightening and revolutionary book. It is a resource that all school teachers and even parents should have and to use with children. It has the capablility to help an ordinary teacher become an extraordinary teacher.
This CD-Rom has become the most important tool for my classroom. I am an Abydos teacher, and the Discrepant Inquiry Model fits well within the Abydos framework. I cannot imagine how I taught before the DEI model. My students are excited and motivated and becoming very open-minded. In English and Journalism, it is more important to teach the students to ask questions rather than to get answers. The DEI model makes that possible and fluid in the classroom!
This book offers incredible insight and you will not be disappointed. You will love the perspective and insight that you receive throughout the book.
