Teachers can use the ADI Guidance PowerPoints to support students as they work through each stage of an ADI lab investigation. Each PowerPoint includes images that illustrate how to use equipment, information about the core ideas that students use during the investigation, and questions to elicit student thinking during the explicit and reflective discussion. The ADI Guidance PowerPoints make it easy for teachers to prep for and implement an ADI investigation.
