    • Abstract:
      The article presents tips in teaching inquiry-based science process skills in the biological sciences. Teaching specific process skills independently overcomes the difficulties that often deter teachers from implementing intensive inquiry-based techniques. Teachers have the advantage of focusing on one or a few science process skills at time, ergo, an entire inquiry lesson does not have to be employed each time a specific science process skill is taught. The greatest benefit for teaching process skills independently is that routine teaching of these skills increases the likelihood that students will learn the skills. Students with stronger foundations in science process skills will be able to use them in other scientific inquiries with a larger success rate.
