“Evidence-Based Argumentation in Science,” a free, one-hour, on-demand web seminar hosted by the Literacy in Learning Exchange, addresses the call to guide students as they develop science arguments that are supported by research-based evidence. The presenters share examples of ways to teach students to glean appropriate evidence from informational texts and other resources, and methods for compiling and sharing evidence in a cohesive, academic manner in both written and oral formats.
