Feedback form is now closed.
Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) is a three-dimensional instructional model that can be integrated into any science curriculum in grades 3-5 (as well as 6-12). ADI increases rigor by providing students more opportunity to share, critique and revise ideas as they attempt to explain or understand a phenomenon. These types of sense-making opportunities can help students learn how to use the core ideas, crosscutting concepts and scientific practices to make sense of the world around them. During this session, supervisors will experience a hands-on an ADI, dive into some of the research that guided the development of this model, and see how it is aligned with science, English-language arts, and mathematics standards.

Learning Objectives:
Throughout this workshop, supervisors will learn how teachers can use ADI to establish productive classroom norms and routines that will help foster a classroom knowledge building community. They will also explore why ADI can help all students develop the knowledge and skills they need to be proficient in science.
