Summary

Conduct a Book Study Group! The Book Study Facilitator's Guideprovides ideas on how to conduct a Book Study group or professional development with What's Your Evidence? Engaging K-5 Students in Constructing Explanations in Science(ISBN :0132117266). There are two goals of this guide: (1) to support the development of a collaborative teacher community that shares a common interest and supports each other in their work; and (2) to link the ideas presented in the book to classroom practice in which students construct scientific explanations in both writing and talk. This Book Study guide provides participants with an avenue to collaborate with their colleagues to discuss the ideas in the book, try the scientific explanation framework (i.e., claim, evidence, reasoning, and rebuttal) with their students, and bring student work and video clips back to discuss with their colleagues to reflect on how to continue to improve their practice.
