The Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) instructional model is a tool for science teachers. Teachers can use ADI to transform the way they teach labs so students have more opportunities to learn how to use Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs), Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs), and Science/Engineering Practices (SEPs) to figure out how things work or why things happen. ADI also gives students opportunities to learn how to read, write, speak, and listen in science because it makes scientific argumentation the foundation of all laboratory activities. ADI, as a result, makes classroom science more like real science for students and can help them learn more than they typically do from hands-on lab activities.
