  • Workshop #3

    Date: Thursday, October 21, 2021
    Time: 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

    Title: Argument-Driven Inquiry in Grades 3-5:
    How to give children more opportunities to use science and literacy to make sense of the world around


    Presented by:
    Victor Sampson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of STEM Education, The University of Texas at Austin

    Audience: 3 - 5th Grade Teachers

    Location: TBA

    Workshop Cost: $5.00, Pre-registration required

    Maximum: 26
    Minimum: 14

    Description:
    This session introduces a way to create learning experiences that will give students opportunities to talk, read, and write in the service of sensemaking as they use the DCIs, CCs, and SEPs to explain natural phenomena.

    The session will give teachers an opportunity to participate in the same sort of rich and meaningful learning experiences that are called for by the NGSSS. Such learning places the focus squarely on the nature of instruction. It is rooted in ongoing, active experiences that will prompt teachers to expand their content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, and expand their beliefs about what is possible inside the classroom. The presenter will guide the participants in a series of focused, small-group demonstration activities that are structured like a typical day’s lesson, allowing teachers to experience instruction as students do. The demonstration activities will focus on making sense of differences in rabbit fur color placed on where they live.
