Some examples of Units of Inquiry: "Everyone has a Story to Tell.", "People use their imagination to create, entertain, explore feelings and explain the world..", "Beliefs and value systems may shape a society."

Parts of a unit of inquiry include: Central Idea, Summative Assessment, Lines of Inquiry, Teacher Questions and Provocations, Formative Assessments (Pre and Post), Learning Experiences, Resources, Student inquiries and actions, and extensive Reflections on the teaching and learning
