The CONSTRUCT phase of the Inquiry Process involves synthesizing learning to generate original ideas. Organizing and prioritizing your thoughts are part of the CONSTRUCT phase; however, they are meant to support the greater purpose of idea creation and knowledge construction. Synthesis may include the iteration of what if scenarios, supported by your investigation. Close reading and effective note taking support synthesis- by annotating your connections and questions, and reorganizing and prioritizing your thoughts and evidence, throughout the process.
