Product Description
How do you design an experiment? This question exploration asks: How do scientists use the scientific method to conduct an investigation?

Question Exploration Routine is an instructional methods that teachers can use to help a diverse student population understand a body of content information by carefully answering a critical question to arrive at a main idea answer. Students taught using the question exploration routine earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method.

Personally, I use the Question Exploration Routine to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it. I keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto 2-3 pages. This product includes the completed question exploration guide, and the student guide blanked except for vocabulary, scaffolding questions, and graphics already filled in.

These Concept Enhancement Routines have the following learning objectives and outcomes:
SWBAT identify skills scientists use to learn about the world
SWBAT explain what scientific inquiry is about and how it involves posing questions and developing hypothesis
SWBAT explain how to design and conduct an experiment so that it uses best scientific principles
SWBAT compare how scientific explanations are developed in experimental sciences and "historical" science

These Concept Enhancement Routines are classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science:
SC.8.N.1.2 Design and conduct a study using repeated trials and replication.
SC.7.N.1.2 Differentiate replication (by others) from repetition (multiple trials).
SC.912.N.1.2 Describe and explain what characterizes science and its methods.
SC.912.N.1.5 Describe and provide examples of how similar investigations conducted in many parts of the world result in the same outcome.
SC.912.N.3.4 Recognize that theories do not become laws, nor do laws become theories; theories are well supported explanations and laws are well supported descriptions.
