Day 17: Argument Driven Inquiry Training

I attended a full-day Argument Driven Inquiry workshop today. I had heard about it from Middle School teachers in our school-district who love using this process with their students. It sounded transformational and I was interested to hear more. We did a “blood typing” lab in teams and created the following whiteboard to display our argument and get feedback from other teams on how to improve our argument. Thanks to the other teachers in my group, I learned a lot about biology that I didn’t understand before. I also loved learning about the process of having students work together in teams to develop an argument, get feedback, and then create a lab report that uses the argument that they created as a team as an outline. I see a lot of qualities that are similar to the modeling pedagogy, as well as some big differences that I hope to implement soon.
