Anyway, here's the update and some reminders to myself for future posts:
-Spent lots of time last week putting finishing touches on DSG proposal - really helped me clarify thoughts on the content/argumentation interaction.
-READ a bunch of papers while writing our group's Nat'l Association for Research in Science Teaching paper about refining our argumentation learning progression
-Re-read the vonAufschnaiter et al (2008) paper about argumentation and content - spend a future post talking about how that study is the starting point for the content/arg relationship analysis part of this project
-Re-read Gotwals & Songer et al (2009-2013) work on developing a learning progression and assessment items for development of "complex thinking" in ecology.
Next week is SPRING BREAK (aka time to work on dissertation) - plans
