Some subscribers to Math-Teach might be interested in a recent post
"Responses to David Klahr's Criticism of Inquiry Science" [Hake
(2013)]. The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT: David Klahr's (2012) APS News back-page essay "Inquiry
Science rocks: Or does it?" at <http://bit.ly/WmqHMj> initiated two
long threads on the PhysLrnR list: (a) "Klahr in Dec. APSNEWS" at
<http://bit.ly/VsSA9u>, and (b) "Klahr In APS" at
<http://bit.ly/YdVI3q> [respectively 51 and 67 posts as of 17 Feb
2013; to gain access you may need to obtain a password by clicking on

which supports Klahr's criticism of Inquiry Science. Ehrlich

(PER) basher - see e.g., my response to his careless commentary in
"Comment on 'How do we know if we are doing a good job in physics
teaching' by Robert Ehrlich" [Hake (2002)] at <http://bit.ly/R4UZkt>.
