Quality science instruction should provide all students with authentic and educative experiences to learn by engaging in scientific practices within the classroom. Doing so will allow students to develop proficiency in science so that they can use their understanding of science to contribute to solving pressing issues in our society.
RESEARCH AND PROJECTS
My research centers on understanding how students engage in scientific practices, what they learn, development of curriculum materials that emphasize scientific argumentation, and how teachers implement instruction that supports their students' development of science proficiency.
As a researcher and author, I have produced several manuscripts detailing the benefits of engaging students in authentic learning experiences grounded in scientific argumentation. I welcome the opportunity to share these experiences with your group to help transform science education in your context.
