Introduction to Argument-Driven Inquiry (1 Day):

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 an actual ADI lab investigation from start to finish. The participants will then have time to reflect on their experiences during the lab investigation and ask clarifying questions. From there, the participants will learn about scientific arguments and how ADI is aligned with state standards for Science and English- Language Arts.
