Sorting to Learn in Science
The Enhancing Learning and Transfer of Science Principles via Category Construction project seeks to support mastery and transfer of evolution principles.
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. We are particularly interested in students’ engagement in argumentation as an epistemic tool in science and environmental characteristics that support deliberative argumentation.
