Develop Scientific Thinking: Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning

In this course participants explore the Claim-Evidence-Reasoning-Rebuttal process and how it ties into the Three Dimensions of Learning. Through several engaging and interactive activities, participants analyze each part of Claim-Evidence-Reasoning-Rebuttal and identify examples and non-examples of CER while building and refining their own understanding of the CER process. Finally, participants discuss the use of CER to deepen student understanding in multiple curricular areas, find opportunities in their science curriculum for CER, and establish a plan for how they will implement CER with their students.
