The Inquiry Chart (I-Chart), developed by James Hoffman in 1992, provides students with a table that guides them in using multiple sources to research a topic. The chart helps students think critically about the results of their research, and supports students in their efforts to synthesize multiple sources of information into a cohesive and meaningful product. Teachers have found that I-Charts are suitable for whole-class, small-group, or individual inquiry, making them a versatile tool in a variety of subject areas and grade levels.
