To often teacher workshops focus on crafting a strong viable argument and not on having the argument. How do we help students to lower their resistance and feel safe to engage in lively discourse and critique? How do we create an environment that stimulates deeper, richer interaction? Interactions that employ quality evidence and quantitative reasoning? Enjoy a day of "arguing" with your peers as you participate in a series of activities that model specific research-based instructional strategies designed to get your students engaged in richer, more productive discourse.
