This workshop is a brief, 2 hour sample of the Teaching Science Thought and Practices (Weekend Intensive). If you are interested in the concept of Teaching Science Thought and Practices but cannot yet commit to a full weekend intensive, we strongly encourage you to sign up for this workshop instead. Also, if you are a graduate student interested in this topic, we encourage you to sign up for this workshop, rather than the Weekend Intensive. This hands-on, active-learning workshop will provide participants with a model for teaching undergraduates key topics in scientific thought and practices, including: proportional reasoning, control of variables thinking, experimental design, hypothesis testing, use of assumptions, observations and inferences, reasoning with data, and drawing conclusions from graphical display. Topics addressed here are rarely taught in-depth early in the formal undergraduate curriculum and are frequently learned only after several apprenticeship research experiences. Participants should plan to play with both lab equipment and data. This workshop is based on the highly successful research preparation course developed for AstroCom NYC by Dennis M. Robbins and K. E. Saavik Ford. The course has educated 78 students (from 1st to 4th year science majors) at the City University of New York. Students completing the curriculum make notable gains on Lawson's Classroom Test of Scientific Reasoning, among other metrics. This workshop will consist of a single lesson, representing a small sample of the curriculum, delivered by participants from the Weekend Intensive workshop by the same name, under the supervision of either Robbins or Ford. Open to faculty, postdocs & graduate students. Preference goes to participants invested in supporting undergraduate research, and/or at minority-serving institutions. Workshop organizers will provide information for participants to develop the lesson for local implementation.
