Planting Inquiry in Science Classrooms.

Science practices play prominent roles in the Next Generation Science Standards, the revised AP Biology Curriculum, and undergraduate teaching reform efforts. In this interactive workshop, we share simple yet effective techniques to help students develop skills ranging from generating questions based on observations of the usual and unusual to exploring alternative explanations. Leave with tested examples, ideas for using them in your own classroom, and increased confidence to up the ante on student-centered learning or introduce inquiry into what you already do. Workshop participants receive a print copy of Inquiring About Plants: A Practical Guide to Engaging Science Practices.
