THURSDAY 11/14/19 - PERFORMANCE TASK PREPARATION (PHASE CHANGE - STRUCTURES AND PROPERTIES OF MATTER)
******Wrong Dates Written on Board*******
This is for 11/14/19 - NOT 11/15/19 (sorry - and NO students caught the mistake all day)!
ALSO, they are scheduled to take the Performance task on Monday, 11/18/19 - not 11/19.
Today students prepared their ISNs for Trimester 2 by writing down some of the important dates and reviewing our units of study.
We then watched Bill Nye's Phase Change episode, while taking guided notes, to help us prepare for taking the Structures and Properties of Matter Performance Task (this is practice for the 8th grade CAST test). I am collecting data (no student names are attached to the data submitted) to help LACOE and West ED calibrate question formatting and scoring rubrics.
Today students had a sub while I attended the LACOE/West Ed Performance Task Project of South Bay Cities on behalf of the District Office.
Students took Part 1 of their Trimester 1 Final Exam.
Today students participated in Peer Review of ISN Check 09.
Students also recieved pages 3 - 4 of their study guide and had approximately 20 minutes to work on it.
Today students were given the entire period to work on completing ISN Check 09 and/or working on their study guide.
The study guide is NOT mandatory, however, the final exam will not be curved. The study guide is worth extra credit on the final exam and the exam is open notes. The study guide will also be incorporated into the ISN (pages 50 and 51) with ISN Check 10 (which will not be assigned until 11/15/19 - due 11/20/19).
