As argumentation is weaved into classroom lessons, students know what to ask, how to analyze the given information before forming a conclusion, and are able to support their reasoning with solid evidence. They will hold firm to their conclusions until proven wrong. Whether it’s a discussion about whether air is matter or how speed and friction are related, students will dare to disagree, in a scientific way. In this article, the author highlights the effective methods she has used to guide her students in the process of questioning, researching, and inquiry.
