C.E.R (Writing in Science)
Limited Capacity seats available

Claim-Evidence-Reasoning is a framework for writing scientific explanations. After most investigations, students are asked to write about it using this format to help them understand the reason for the result. After another year of implementation, let’s review what it is, how it's being used, and how we can move forward.
