MONDAY 2/25/19 - ASPC 3.3: MODELING ATTRACTION AND GATHERING EVIDENCE TO ANSWER THE CHAPTER 3 QUESTION
Today students participated in a partner to whole group Jigsaw of three pieces of evidence to help them answer the Chapter 3 question. Most classes were able to gather their evidence. However, none were able to get to the modeling portion of this lesson.
Students need to complete the Pressure and Temperature assignment as homework.
We will model for page 108 on Wednesday and students will have time to complete page 108 and 109 on Wednesday in class.
Today students took notes on Polarity and Molecular Attraction during a whole group discussion.
We then worked in the SIM to help us complete I #11 together as a whole group.
I #11 was due completed by the end of the period.
Today students had a substitute teacher while I attended a District Office Site Lead training.
Students were given the entire period to complete their NGSS SEP #3 Packet. This was due at the end of the period. Answer Keys were provided to students to help them complete the packets.
Today students participated in peer review of ISN Check 08. After this, they took OPEN NOTE Quiz #6.
Attached please find the pictures of my ISN.
I have indicated the pages that I have not yet passed back.
Please check for completion FRONT AND BACK (I do not take front and back completion pictures - you will find those on the individual assignment blog dates).
All CREATIVE OUTPUTS should be original work, not copies of the TEACHER SAMPLEs. If your student is STILL struggling with CREATIVE OUTPUTS have them attend tutoring on Mondays and Fridays from 3:15 to 4:15 PM. In tutoring we do all CREATIVE OUTPUTS and some EXTRA CREDIT together.
All CREATIVE OUTPUTS should be colored with at MINIMUM five colors (black and white do not count) for full credit.
Students participated in a hands-on learning experience coupled with an exploration within the computer simulation to investigate molecular attraction on two scales (macro and molecular).
Students were unable to complete the lab today BUT should have the first three parts of the lab completed as indicated on the pictures below.
We will complete PART 2: TEST 2 and PART 3 on Thursday when the entire lab will be due at the end of the period.
We were unable to complete the lab in the expected amount of time today due to the fact that the majority of students had not completed the activity done in class (and the homework which coupled it) on 2/14/19. In addition to this, students are still struggling with following the daily procedures of coming to class on-time, being prepared, no talking and begining work immediatelty instead. We lost at least 15 minutes of class time in each period today due to students not complying with the procedures that have been in place since August of 2018.
Students were given the entire 46 minute period to work on preparing their ISN for ISN Check 08 and Open Note Quiz #6 on Wednesday, 2/20/19.
No new assignments were given. However, expectations were put in place to guide students toward a successful class period.
Today students participated in an ACTIVE READING of the article LIQUID OXYGEN which introduces and explores the concept of molecular attraction and its role in phase change.
Students were to complete the Warm-Up, ACTIVE READING with AVID Skills of Marking the Text (MTT) and Writing in the Margins (WiTM), and begin their homework of ASPC Lesson 3.1, Activity 4.
