Lesson Resources and Teaching Strategies on Argumentation for Secondary Chemistry Education
This chapter provides some examples of resources and strategies useful for promoting argumentation in the secondary chemistry classroom from both authors’ personal experiences, as well as from a review of current literature. Literature has been used to describe how strategies could be operationalised in the classroom. Selected strategies include concept cartoons, evidence-based reasoning, and scenario analysis on social media. Some ideas and suggested resources have been developed for the chapter and therefore are a unique contribution to the area of chemistry argumentation. These include the examination of social media platforms to address plastic pollution and energy sources. The authors examine chemistry concepts and socio-scientific issues and how they can be situated in relation to argumentation in secondary chemistry education.
