Since an August 2010 start date, the Evidence Game team has been engaged in an iterative design and development process for a game to provide middle school students and their teachers with practice in Toulmin’s (1984) model of argumentation as applied to science.  The poster session will present the overall conceptual model for a targeted game to provide practice in argumentation and efforts to make this process a fun experience for youth.

The Problem:

How can we support teachers in using local and regional geology to teach Earth science in an inquiry-based way? In 2006, 24% of Earth science teachers were not Earth science certified (CCSSO, 2007) and many do not know regional geology. Is it reasonable to expect teachers who do not have an in depth background in the discipline or a deep understanding of the local environment to lead meaningful Earth system science inquiry for their students?
