Abstract: This study examined teacher's role in a Knowledge Community and Inquiry (KCI) curriculum. Three science teachers and their students in a climate change curriculum unit involved in this design-based research. Curriculum design documents and video recordings of teacher-students interactions were the sources of data. Grounded theory coding techniques and a video coding scheme were applied to the analysis of data. Analysis examined the roles that teachers played in the KCI curriculum as well as the teacher-students interactions. Teachers played a predominantly logistical role in the beginning of the enactment of this KCI curriculum, followed by increasingly pedagogical practices.
