Ema Engagement

This feature includes advice on developing tasks that can enhance students’ scientific understanding in core topics, integrating engagement in these tasks with teaching methods and instructional resources. We help teachers develop task that resemble the following:

The typical explanatory modeling task

Students are presented with a description of a psychological phenomenon (like a learned response to a configuration of stimuli or the memory of an event) and asked to engage in the following activities:

  1. Construct an explanation of that phenomenon in accordance with the explanatory practices of a given framework in psychology, like behavioral cognitive, or physiological.
  2. Model that explanation as a set of diagrams that capture the pattern of changes produced by causal interactions between those variables that give rise to the phenomenon to be explained.
  3. Use the causal relations captured by the set of diagrams to derive hypotheses about the potential effects of other variables that could alter the manifestations of the phenomenon to be explained.
  4. Design experiments to empirically evaluate these hypotheses.

  2. Is the model consistent with well-established, relevant domain knowledge?
  3. Does the model make only those assumptions that are necessary to account for the explanandum phenomenon?

Core Concepts

Preparing students for engagement in these activities by presenting them with material about how explanations enhance understanding of phenomena and how scientists often use modeling strategies to organize their reasoning activities and self-generated diagrams to reduce memory load.

Core Concepts

Preparing students for engagement in these activities by presenting them with material about how explanations enhance understanding of phenomena and how scientists often use modeling strategies to organize their reasoning activities and self-generated diagrams to reduce memory load.
