“We did spend quite a bit of time talking about the talk moves, and also like what does make for a model and what doesn’t make for a model… having folks understand what makes for an explanation in science. We had a lot of clarity from the book… how do we support the students in getting toward being able to express how or why a phenomenon is happening versus what is happening… getting at those causal mechanisms, but also like, how do students revise? How do students revise models? What does that look like?… How do students give feedback to each other? How does that modeling look over time?”
