The Tragedy of the Commons: A Practice in Argumentation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is argumentation in science? How do you get students to evaluate data and draw conclusions and still keep them engaged? This session provides an introduction to the worldwide collapse of fisheries through an active simulation. A model for using scientific argumentation follows the simulation where participants will evaluate data and draw conclusions about ocean sustainability (in a way that is actually fun!). This model for argumentation can be used for a variety of content objectives.
