Science 6-12 Webinar:Becoming Common Core Connected October 22, 20133:30-4:30 pm


Webinar Series Objectives:

  • To develop awareness of strategies and resources for implementation of 6-12 Science Standards

  • To share updates from DPI

  • To use blended models of professional development and ongoing online communication to implement the North Carolina Science Essential Standards


Webinar Overview

  • Connecting Science Practices with Common Core

    • Argumentation and the Cl-Ev-R Model

    • Connecting with Common Core Literacy Standards through Science Writing Heuristic (SWH)

    • Connecting with Common Core Mathematics

  • Updates

  • Q & A

The Cl-Ev-R Analysis Template


Claim


Evidence


Reasoning


A Scientific Argument

  • The quality of an argument is evaluated using…

  • Empirical Criteria

  • The claim fits with the evidence.

  • The amount of evidence is sufficient.

  • The method used to collect the data was appropriate and rigorous.

  • The method used to analyze the data was appropriate and sound.

  • Theoretical Criteria

  • The claim contributes to our understanding of the natural world.

  • The claim is consistent with current theories and laws

  • The interpretation of the data analysis is consistent with current theories and laws.

Reasoning

(Justification of the Evidence)

  • The generation and evaluation of an argument is shaped by…

  • How scientists communicate with each other

  • Standards of evidence shared by scientists

  • Methods of inquiry accepted by scientists

  • Scientific theories and laws

Adapted from “Argumentation in Science Education” in The Science Teacher (2013 Summer)


What is SWH?

  • Science Writing Heuristic

  • Guided inquiry

  • Writing to learn strategy

  • Used to promote collaboration, learning, critical thinking skills, communication, & problem solving

How theScientific & Engineering Practices fromA Framework for K-12 Science Education mesh with the Mathematical Practices of the Common Core

World-Class Science at NCDPI


Scientific & Engineering Practicesfrom A Framework for K-12 Science Education


Mathematical Practicesfrom the Common Core

If a= 3 and b = 14, then what is the value of c in this equation?

4a + b/2 = 3a +10
