    May I have a copy of the Power point presentation? Two of us who are working on professional development on ELA/NGSS would like to use this Webinar, but we need to see ahead of time what is being presented.

    Thank you,
    Diana Abasta

      Hi Diana, We are still working on the PowerPoint presentation and will be glad to share when it is available. The webinar will include the professional learning module that is available on Kathy DiRanna’s digital chalkboard, and then will use examples of how argumentation is done in scientific fields and how we can have students engage in argumentation in the classroom. The PowerPoint presentation should be completed by next week. Thanks, Diana, for your interest!
