Next Steps Workshops

Our Next Steps workshops are designed to help educators learn new teaching practices that will help them get the most out of the Argument-Driven instructional model. Teachers will have opportunities to examine student work, learn how to facilitate productive discussions, and practice teaching the different stages of an ADI lab. The table below outlines the elements of our one, two, and three day Next Steps workshops.
