Science 9 – The above picture is a snapshot of my reproduction unit plan. As the science 9 classes worked their way through reproduction, I sort of got bogged down in details again. I managed to avoid the small bits of meirosis and focused on how it results in genetic diversity. However, I don’t think the students had enough meaningful tasks by which they could really assimilate these new ideas. What I should have done is got them started on a transfer task or some intermediate project that focuses on the Understandings and Essential Questions. Passively reading through some material isn’t much of a learning experience for them. Next year?….?
