Four Whiteboard PowerPoints for Students
This download includes four different PowerPoint files. Students can use these files as a template to create their initial argument during stage 4 of ADI instead of creating their initial argument on a whiteboard. The PowerPoint files include a slide for the guiding question of the lab and a slide for each of the three main components of an argument (claim, evidence, and a justification of the evidence). Some of the slides include sentence starters to help scaffold students as they learn to craft scientific arguments. Teachers can post one or all of these files on a class website or email them to students before starting a lab. The files can also be modified as needed based on student needs. These files are an excellent resource for teachers who want to encourage students to use technology throughout the ADI process.
