This workshop is an introduction to the Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) instructional model. Participants will first learn about the limitations of typical laboratory instruction and why ADI can help all students develop the knowledge and skills they need to be proficient in science. Next, the participants will have an opportunity to learn about the ADI instructional model by participating in all eight stages of two ADI lab investigations from start to finish. The participants will then have time to reflect on their experiences during the lab investigation and ask clarifying questions. Finally, the participants will see how ADI is aligned with the NGSS and state standards for Science and English-Language Arts and learn about ways to support students during each stage of the approach.
