Event Description

Next Generation Science Standards, expected out next year, are based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education released in 2011 by the National Research Council (NRC). The Framework describes the major practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas that all students should be familiar with by the end of high school. Starting September 11, 2012 and continuing through December, NSTA is presenting eight web seminars on the practices described in the Framework. This web seminar will focus on Engaging in Argument from Evidence. Register today!

Teachers will learn more about:

  • why, reasoning and argument based on evidence are essential to identifying the best explanation for a natural phenomenon or the best solution to a design problem;
  • how scientists and engineers use argumentation to listen to, compare, and evaluate competing ideas and methods based on merits; and
  • the use of argumentation when investigating a phenomenon, testing a design solution, resolving questions about measurements, building data models, and using evidence to identify strengths and weaknesses of claims.
