STRAND: Sharing Authentic Assessment Strategies

Show Details

In this session, attendees will learn how to get students to write a scientific argument using a CER tool. They will also learn about a self-evaluation tool students can use to critique their writing.

Attendees will learn: 1. how to use a CER writing tool to make sure students are writing high-level scientific arguments; 2. the importance of the self-evaluation tool when writing CERs; and 3. how to use student interactive notebooks as a tool if students are reaching the learning goal.
