CREATE for STEM Conference Room (115 Erickson Hall)

This month we will discuss a Passmore and Svoboda article on "Exploring Opportunities for Argumentation in Modelling Classrooms". This article looks at the intersection between argumentation and modelling, and highlights the central role of both in science classrooms. Jonathan Osborne will talk about argumentation in his CREATE seminar series talk next week, and Eric Brewe will be visiting in a few weeks time and will give one of his talks on modelling. This article will serve as a way for us to prepare for/reflect upon these talks.
