    This workshop is an introduction to the Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) instructional model. Participants will first learn about the limitations of typical laboratory instruction and why ADI can help all students develop the knowledge and skills they need to be proficient in science. Next, the participants will have an opportunity to learn about the ADI instructional model by participating in all eight stages of two different ADI lab investigations from start to finish. Finally, the participants will learn how ADI is aligned with state science standards and CCSS for English-Language Arts. 

    Logistical information:

    • 6 PDUs are available through OSTA!
    • Please note: date has been changed 
    • 8:00 am- 3:00 pm,   Lunch 11:30-12:30 (not provided)

    • Cost: $160 per participant, 20 participant minimum
    • Materials included for each participant: ADI eBook of your choice and a ADI Handouts booklet which includes the lab investigation, peer review sheet, investigation proposal and lab handout. 

    Participants will receive an e-book after the workshop with their registration. OSTA will also have the physical books available for sale at the workshop for $40.
