Developing teachers' capacity to promote argumentation in school science

NSF Awards: 1503511

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

This is a 3 year professional development effort with two dozen middle and high school lead science teachers to help them learn to adapt instruction to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), with an emphasis on creating opportunities for students to argue about all aspects of scientific practice. In our professional development, teachers participate in adult learning experiences and reflect on how those experiences relate to their students and classrooms.  Teachers also participate in two lesson study cycles each year where they collaboratively plan, teach, and reflect on a lesson around the NGSS.   The main goal of our project is to develop a concrete, formalized instructional model for argumentation through a long-term professional development program.
