    Description
    Authentic Science Research 3 is designed to enable students who are proficient or advanced in the science and engineering practices to continue independent research and design. Students will work closely with their individual mentors and peers in the class to evaluate their designs and findings.
    Focus on the revision process and how to most effectively communicate their results in written, oral, and display forms
    Assume the role of student mentors for ASR 1 and 2 students, providing essential peer evaluation and support and modeling the collaborative effort of a scientific research team
    Submit research to various scientific competitions (i.e., science symposia, science fairs, and other science forums)

ASR31Research Review
Students will apply what they have learned in both ASR 1 and ASR 2, continuing to research available literature to learn even more about their chosen research topic and investigation. They will continue to analyze and critically read scientific and technical texts as well as evaluate other sources of science media and evidence. This practice will inform revisions of their own authentic work as well as enhance their abilities to perform
literature reviews to further explore questions and problems.
ASR32Scientific Investigations (Focus on Presentation/Communication)
Students should attain proficiency for the science and engineering practices by the end of ASR 3. Students will
continue to enhance their performance of these practices and will assist ASR 1 and ASR 2 students in their understanding of the practices. ASR 3 students will focus more on revisions of their investigations. An emphasis on continued data analysis, development of scientific arguments, and construction of explanations will be the focus of this course. Greatest focus will be on the practice of evaluating and communicating scientific information.
ASR33Scientific Community Interactions
Students will explore the variety of science fields through research, literature review, mentoring collaboration, and
presenting at a local science meeting. In ASR 3, students will continue to work with their mentor. Increased focus will be placed on forming collaborative partnerships in the scientific community. Students will be actively preparing to submit their research findings in an attempt to present their research at a local scientific event.
