The Independent Investigation Method (IIM) is a teaching model that guides primary, elementary, and secondary students through the research process. IIM empowers you to combine your required curriculum with vital research skills, choosing from options for integration of state standards, the length of study, and students' grade, skills and learning styles. Based around the IIM model, we offer books and teaching tools for teachers and research rewards for students.
