Argument Engagement

A Science on Tap Event
Parents, teachers and children alike know searching online or reading for information can yield conflicting answers, especially if the results have competing claims or facts. But how can children learn the nuances between data, facts and opinion or find ways to evaluate evidence and reasoning? Janis Bulgren, KU assistant research professor at the KU Center for Research on Learning, will lead a conversation about current research on preparing students to engage in argumentation. The research aims to help students better acquire higher order reasoning in science, technology, engineering and math, and extend that thinking to other subjects or real-world issues.
