Engaging Middle and High School Students in Science Learning
  • Erin Lancaster says:
    This website includes links to excellent inquiry-based biology labs that encourage students to support their claims with evidence in order to justify their claims related to the guiding question of the lab. Each lab includes an "argumentation" section that pushes students to support their claims with evidence and discuss these with their peers.

    This website provides a vision of ambitious science instruction for elementary, middle school and high school classrooms. Ambitious teaching aims to support students of all backgrounds with deeply understanding science ideas, participating in the activities of the discipline, and solving authentic problems. You can view the short videos within the "Getting Started" section which are excellent resources related to planning for student engagement and eliciting student ideas.
