Abstract: This study investigates the impact of providing students with opportunities for collaborative choice-making during inquiry learning with Investigating Seasons, an online curriculum module. Two versions of Seasons (no-choice and choice) was implemented with ten classes of high school students (N = 207). Study findings indicate that students in the choice condition demonstrated greater gains in their conceptual understanding of seasons as well as a higher increase in normative written explanations compared to the no-choice students.
