NSTA Press Session: Argument-Driven Inquiry as a Way to Bring 3-D Instruction to Your Classroom

Thursday, October 28 • 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Oregon Convention Center - G131/132


Show Details

Argument-Driven Inquiry is an instructional model that gives students an opportunity to learn how to use the DCIs, CCs, and SEPs to explain natural phenomena. It creates a learning environment where students are able to talk, read, and write in the service of sensemaking.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. How to use this instructional model, or way of teaching, to give students an opportunity to learn how to use the DCIs, CCs, and SEPs to make sense of natural phenomena; 2. How to give students an opportunity to use their own ideas and ways of communicating to talk, read, and write in the service of sensemaking; and 3. How to give students more opportunities to decide what counts as valid and acceptable and develop new criteria for what counts evidence in science.

SPEAKERS:
Victor Sampson (The University of Texas at Austin: Austin, TX)

STRAND: Successful Collaborations Between Informal and Formal Educators

Show Details

Join museum educators and classroom teachers to learn how data collection and analysis can help students make meaningful connections with content and with each other.

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will learn: 1. how to create a unit of study around authentic data collection and analysis; 2. data collection and analysis can connect teachers (or students) who can't connect in person; and 3. about tools for data collection and analysis.

SPEAKERS:
Shannon Baldioli (Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: Washington, DC), Kate Kogge (AFOSR: No City, No State), Michelle Rahn (Will Rogers Junior High School: Claremore, OK)

Supporting Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) in the Science Classroom by Using POGIL (Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning) Strategies

Thursday, October 28 • 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Oregon Convention Center - A106



(Only registered attendees may view session materials. Please login with your NSTA account to view.)
Exploring Roles Used in POGIL Teams rvsd 9-1-21.pdf
How POGIL Supports Culturally Responsive Teaching
Explore how using POGIL (process oriented guided inquiry learning) activities align with the stages of learning identified in Zaretta Hammond's book "Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain."
Sample POGIL Physics MSHS waves activity
Explore wave transmission and absorption by working in teams to complete this activity together.

Show Details

Participants will work in cooperative teams to explore how POGIL supports CRT to help close the achievement gap for culturally and linguistically diverse learners.

TAKEAWAYS:
I can: 1. describe how the three stages of learning in Zaretta Hammond’s book Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) and the Brain (2015) relate to the learning cycle used in POGIL activities; 2. describe how team roles contribute to improved learning in small cooperative teams; and 3. share the three guided inquiry activities (Roles, CRT and POGIL, and a middle school science activity) with my peers and students.

SPEAKERS:
Mare Sullivan (Seattle Pacific University: Seattle, WA), Lori Stanton (Canyon Park Middle School: Bothell, WA)
