I highly recommend this web seminar and the rest in the NGSS series. In this particular web seminar, the presenter uses great examples to show how students can support their arguments with evidence. He models throughout the web seminar how he teaches his students to support their scientific explanations with evidence gathered from scientific experiments. This is a difficult concept to teach and also for students to put into practice. This is a great resource for both middle school and high school science teachers.
