CER (Claim, Evidence, Reasoning) in Biology

9 Views
Published
The CER framework is a useful framework for developing a scientific explanation. In this video, the Amoeba Sisters use this framework after a biology investigation. As mentioned, there are many ways to use this framework. Also, as we point out in the video, CER is not necessarily needing to be in this order. We've seen several models such as CERR, ERC, and more.

REFERENCES REGARDING CER:
The CER Framework is developed by Katherine McNeill and Joseph Krajcik https://www.katherinelmcneill.com/uploads/1/6/8/7/1687518/mcneillkrajcik_nsta_inquiry_2008.pdf

In Writing Courses, you may find this model to be used in argumentative writing.

OTHER FURTHER READING SUGGESTIONS:

Our particular example included peer-reviewed research in the evidence, in addition to our data. What does it mean for something to be peer-reviewed? We love this page from Berkeley:

Many zoos have published information about red-eared slider brumation such as this one:

Sometimes, these turtles are not completely still at the bottom of the pond/lake when brumating! Take a look at this fascinating clip from US Fish and Wildlife that they shared on Twitter:

The Amoeba Sisters videos demystify science with humor and relevance. The videos center on Pinky's certification and experience in teaching biology at the high school level. Amoeba Sisters videos only cover concepts that Pinky is certified to teach, and they focus on her specialty: secondary life science.
