W33: Getting Students to make Evidence Based Claims: Principles of Running an Argument Driven Inquiry (ADI) or a Science Writing Heuristic (SWH) Laboratory

Inquiry and argumentation are complementary goals that make laboratory experiences more scientifically authentic and educative for students (Berland & Reiser, 2009; Jimenez-Aleixandre, 2008; Osborne, 2010). Currently, there is an emphasis in laboratory instruction to move students toward making evidence based claims through instructional models that give a more central place to argumentation and its role in the social construction of scientific knowledge. This is not a simple adjustment for students or instructors given that challenges still exist even when implementing an inquiry-based laboratory. This workshop will focus on two specific approaches to laboratory instruction: Argument Driven Inquiry (ADI) (Walker & Sampson, 2013) and the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH) (Poock, et al., 2007). Participants will be introduced to each approach, engage in activities that compare the approaches and lead mock ADI and SWH discussion sessions to practice elements of these two instructional methods.
