Inquiry Units

Reading about the inquiry-based units got me wondering if inquiry-based learning would look different in a heavy ESL population like I am currently teaching. I mean, obviously it is different, but I am interested to see how an "expert" would go about teaching my class and how it would differ from the way I teach.

That got me thinking about the way I question my students and the sometimes blah responses I get. I wonder how I can get them more fired up about learning and about their education. It seems that motivation could trump language ability when it comes to inquiry learning.
