Abstract: In a designed-based study, we investigated the viability of knowledge communities in secondary school science classrooms using Knowledge Community and Inquiry model to guide curriculum design. Based on findings from iteration 1, scaffolds were added to the designed curriculum unit in iteration 2 to help students plan and monitor their collaborative inquiry. Findings from iteration 2 showed more science connections in co-constructed knowledge and higher amount of collaboration among students while constructing shared knowledge comparing to iteration 1.
