Using Modeling, Explanations and Argumentation to Engage Students in Rigorous Scientific Thinking:
This asynchronous online workshop for K-12 teachers will provide teachers with tools and strategies to engage their students in powerful science learning. Teachers will consider three of the science & engineering practices: developing and using models, constructing explanations, and engaging in argument. The session will involve classroom video cases, tools and strategies for supporting students, examples of student work to analyze, and articles on these powerful practices. This session is designed so that participants can work at their own pace and complete the 3 hours in one sitting or in multiple interactions.
Participants will have from May 18th-June 18th to complete the session to receive up to three (3) renewal units.
