Are you interested in using
argument-driven inquiry for secondary school lab instruction but just aren’t
sure how to do it? You are not alone. Argument-Driven
Inquiry in Chemistry will provide you with the information and
instructional materials you need to start using this method right away. This
book is a one-stop source of expertise, advice and investigations to help
chemistry students work the way scientists do.
The book is divided into two basic parts:
Because the authors are veteran teachers, they designed Argument-Driven Inquiry in Chemistry to
be easy to use and aligned with today’s standards. The investigations will help
your students learn the core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and science and
engineering practices found in the Next Generation Science Standards.
Many of today’s teachers – like you – want to find new ways
to engage students in scientific practices and help students learn more from
lab activities. Argument-Driven Inquiry
in Chemistry does all this even as it gives students the chance to practise
reading, writing, speaking and using maths in the context of science.
