8. Generating and Testing Hypotheses

Enhance students' understanding of and ability to use knowledge by engaging them in mental processes that involve making and testing hypotheses.

Recommendations for Classroom Practice 
(from Using Technology with Classroom Instruction That Works):
  1. Make sure students can explain their hypotheses and conclusions.
  2. Use a variety of structured tasks to guide students through generating and testing hypotheses.
What are some tools used on your campus that help students gather and analyze data? Identify some web resources that focus on this strategy. For example, Making History allows students to identify and resolves issues about past events that have contradictions.
