For practicing elementary science teachers


Saturday, March 10, 2018
8 a.m. - 4 p.m.


0.5 graduate-level relicensure credits available through the Colorado School of Mines for an additional $35


Children cannot be accommodated in Teachers Professional Development programs; no exceptions. Participants who arrive with children will not be admitted to the program.


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 two different ADI lab investigations from start to finish. Finally, the participants will learn how ADI is aligned with the state standards for science and English-Language Arts.
