    I wonder what types of evidence you are collecting in order to assess the effectiveness of Argument-Based Inquiry in science and also in non-science subjects.

    How many schools are you currently working with? Are you planning to expand this program to other schools or other levels within K-12?

    I would love to know how you have set up the argument structure in the study. What work are you basing it on? Do you have students working in notebooks to record claims, evidence, and explanation (or other argument parts)?

    Can you share the materials you use with teachers for your focus on “how knowledge is constructed in science?” Any videos of the discussions?

    Resources, theory, and evidence—-three excellent questions for the EUCAPS folks. I can’t help but love these types of innovations in the science classroom and I know that most kids would find this kind of learning experience a welcome break from the traditional. However, I would like to know how the experience is adapted for younger children. The video only showed what appears to be middle school students.
    Overall, this sounds like a great and worthwhile project!

    The students in the video are 6th grade students, but it actually looks similar at the earlier grade levels -only that the content they are exploring is more simplistic. K-2 levels are a little different as they are not fluent readers and writers, so that does look a little different. With that said, the difference are mostly in how ideas are represented -the use of claims and evidence is still central.
