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. Participants will learn about the ADI instructional model by participating in all eight stages of an actual ADI lab investigation from start to finish. Learn how ADI supports the state standards for English-Language Arts as well as the Next Generation Science Standards because students learn how to read, write, speak, and listen while engaging in scientific argumentation. The participants will then have a chance to participate in a second ADI lab investigation that focuses on a different content area and will require them to use a different method to collect data. Finally, teachers will learn about ways to support students during each stage of the approach.
