Using argument as to understand the nature of science knowledge.
The Immersive Science Learning Environment Lab (ISLE) is dedicated to the study of learning environments that seek to build students’ grasp of scientific practices while simultaneously developing an understanding of disciplinary big ideas. Within this broad area of inquiry, we are particularly interested in examining and subsequently supporting teachers’ movement toward adaptive pedagogy and the development of prosocial classroom environments. Adaptive pedagogy is instruction in which the teacher responds in the moment as required by the changing needs of her students. Prosocial classroom environments are those in which students recognize that they are part of a greater classroom community which have a collective goal.
