Causal Patterns in Science

Table of Contents

The causal Patterns in Science website shows you how to teach the causal patterns embedded in science curricula so that students emerge with deeper understanding.

Explore the entire website, or jump to the curricula on teaching causal patterns in environmental issues.

You'll find examples of students' thinking, activities, assessments, classroom tips, and the rationale and supporting research behind this approach. General science examples and in-depth examples from Ecosystems and Density are given.

You will learn to identify the patterns and how students struggle unless they grasp them, to teach and assess understanding of the patterns at the same time you teach the science, and how to make it all work in your classroom.

Center Faculty Member Tina Grotzer developed this resource with the Understandings of Consequence Project Team at Harvard Graduate School of Education.
