Student-designed Experiments Part 4: Drawing Conclusions
May 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$45.00
This workshop will focus on the content and demands of the conclusion section of a lab report, with applications to data-based questions and internal assessments for IB students, and free-response questions for AP students. The conclusions drawn from experimental data must be limited to the scope of the experiment, but it is also important for students to be able to understand how their individual work is related to the broader world. This workshop will employ an activity teachers can use to help their students identify the implications of their conclusions and connect the work they have done to topics that may be relevant. This workshop builds on the process taught in Parts 1, 2, and 3 of the Student-designed Experiments series, but it is not necessary to have taken the previous sessions to join and benefit from this workshop.
This 1.5-hour workshop is open to teachers of all grade levels and subject areas, however, we will focus on employing the Next Generating Science Standards (NGSS) instructional methods for teaching math-infused science. As is the case in all CLC workshops, participants will experience this technique firsthand and then collaborate to create an application of this teaching practice to cover their content, skills, and learning objectives.
