Sponsored by the Literacy in Learning Exchange of the National Council of Teachers of English, “Evidence-Based Argumentation in Science” is a one-hour, on-demand web seminar that addresses the call to guide students as they develop science arguments supported by research-based evidence. The presenters offer 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. The seminar recording is free to download, along with support materials.
