  • Workshop Description
  • This course gives curriculum specialists and science supervisors and opportunity to revise an existing science curriculum so that it includes Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) lab investigations. Participants will first learn about several challenges associated with many existing science curricula and how ADI can be used as a tool to address these challenges. Next, participants will learn how ADI can be used to either introduce core ideas or give students an opportunity to apply them. The participants will then have an opportunity to create a curriculum map in order to identify where and when specific ADI lab investigations will be implemented over the course of an academic year.
