Teachers Institute of Philadelphia (TIP) Fellow Klint Kanopka will present on argumentation in science classes at the School District of Philadelphia Teacher Symposium, which will take place on April 29, 2017, 11:30 – 1:30 PM at Lincoln High School. At this event, more than 100 educators from the School District of Philadelphia and partner organizations will present on work deemed particularly useful for District educators. Kanopka, who has been a Fellow with TIP multiple times, will be analyzing the components of a scientific argument and positing a model for consensus building in secondary science classrooms. Kanopka currently teaches physics at the Academy at Palumbo, where he founded a MakerSpace, replete with tools, electronics, and a 3D printer, for students to “take their understanding of mechanics and circuits out of their notebooks and into reality.” Visit the Teachers Institute of Philadelphia website for information about applying to the program and for an archive of Fellows’ curriculum units, including Kanopka’s Conservation: The Thermodynamics of Sustainability and Planetary Motion from the Ground Up.
