Using the Claim, Evidence and Reasoning Framework
Prompted from listener feedback, we welcome Dr. Kate McNeill and Dr. Joe Krajcik to the show. As authors of Supporting Grade 5-8 Students in Constructing Explanations in Science, Kate and Joe join us to talk about using the Claim, Evidence and Reasoning (CER) framework as a method to guide students towards explanations in science. Listen to the show to understand what CER is (and what it isn’t) and how you might use it in your science instruction.
