Course Description

Earth orbits the sun. Microorganisms may cause infectious diseases. Plants use carbon dioxide to grow.  Most of us understand these concepts and accept them as facts. However, astronomers, microbiologists and botanists once fought for these ideas using arguments based on evidence. 

With this in mind, participants will explore instructional strategies through hands-on activities that support students as they learn to use claims, evidence, and reasoning (C-E-R) to engage in scientific argumentation and to construct explanations of the world around them.

Please bring a laptop or a chromebook for this session.

Lunch will be provided.

No Shows are responsible for payment.
