Free Webinar: Introduction to Argument-Driven Engineering: Secondary

During this webinar, we will give an overview of the Argument-Driven Engineering instructional model in the secondary classroom and also answer your questions about implementing ADE. We developed the Argument-Driven Engineering (ADE) instructional model as a way to integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in a meaningful way. This approach provides students with an engineering design challenge that requires them to use core ideas and practices from the different STEM disciplines to develop solutions to problems. Each design challenge revolves around a relevant problem and highlights the ways that engineering solutions improve the lives of others. ADE also requires students to learn how to obtain the information they need, communicate what they know and how they know it, and evaluate the solutions and thinking of others. Argumentation, which is the process of proposing, supporting, critiquing, and refining claims based on evidence, is the foundation of all design challenges. ADE, as a result, makes STEM subjects more authentic for students, easily integrates the four branches of STEM, and, most importantly helps students learn the content they are required to learn to a higher degree than they do in a typical course.
