Day 74 – Trying to be Clear


Science 9 – I’ve been trying to be extremely clear with my students on what their learning outcomes are and what they’re responsible for knowing for quizzes. They’re doing a unit on reproduction, and there are a gazillion small facts that could be tested. However, while we work through these details as part of scientific literacy and understanding, I’m emphasizing that there are a few key ideas to know, understand and be assessed on. For example, while there are several steps and activities inside the nucleus during mitosis, what I really want them to know is the function of mitosis, which can be summarized in one or two sentences.
