Biology Week 1 DOK

Welcome back to school Rattlers!

image

We are all very lucky to be apart of this learning community at this beautiful new school. We need to respect our campus, each other, and all those who step Into this classroom.

Aug 9 2017 – Introduction
QFD: it is better to be thought a fool , than to open your mouth and remove all doubt …
Essential Question of the Day : Are you excited to be back at school? Why or why not..explain in a paragraph
This weeks learning Objective : Students should know and be able to understand the various levels of questioning concerning depth of knowledge
Today’s performance objective : Students will reveal a few personal details about themselves to other students in the classroom, and prepare to introduce their partner student to the class on Friday.

1) fill out card which states the following:
Name , period, class
Birthdate favorite color, favorite movie, favorite song, favorite game, Grade you received last year in science , school you went to last year , explain why you received this grade as well

Hw: read DOK below and bookmark this class website on your home computer
Science, then write the site address in your inside cover of your notebook

Level 1: Recall Level 1 includes the recall of information such as a fact, definition, term, or simple procedure, as well as performing a simple task or applying a concept.Level 1 activity include “identify,” “recall,” “recognize,” “use,” and “measure.” Verbs such as “describe” and “explain” could be classified at different levels depending on what is to be described and explained.

Level 2: Skill/Concept Level 2 includes the engagement of some mental processing beyond a habitual response. A Level 2 assessment item requires students to make some decisions as to how to approach the problem or activity, whereas a Level 1 item requires students to demonstrate a rote response, perform a a skill, follow a set procedure (like a recipe), or perform a clearly defined series of steps. Key words and phrases that generally distinguish a Level 2 item include “classify,” “organize,” “estimate,” “make observations,” “collect and display data,” and “compare data.” These actions imply more than one step. For example, to compare data may require first identifying characteristics of the objects and then grouping or ordering the objects.

Level 3: Strategic Thinking Level 3 requires reasoning, planning, using evidence, and a higher level of thinking than the previous two levels. In most instances, requiring students to explain their thinking is a Level 3 activity. Activities that require students to make conjectures are also at this level. The cognitive demands at Level 3 are complex and abstract. The complexity does not result from the fact that there are multiple answers, a possibility at both Levels 1 and 2, but because the task requires more demanding reasoning. An activity, however, that has more than one possible answer and requires students to justify the response they give would most likely be a Level 3 activity.Other Level 3 activities include drawing conclusions from observations, citing evidence and developing a logical argument for concepts, explaining phenomena in terms of concepts, and using concepts to solve problems.

Level 4: Extended Thinking Level 4 requires complex reasoning, planning, developing, and thinking—most likely over an extended period of time. The extended time period is not a distinguishing factor if the required work is only repetitive and does not require applying significant conceptual understanding and higher-order thinking. For example, if a student has to take the water temperature from a river each day for a month and then construct a graph using scientific data, this would be classified as a Level 2 activity. However, if the student is to conduct a river study that requires taking into consideration a number of variables, this would be a Level 4 activity.

At Level 4, the cognitive demands of the task should be high and the work should be very complex. Students should be required to make several connections—relate ideas within the content area or among content areas—and have to select one approach among many alternatives on how the situation should be solved. Level 4 activities include designing and conducting experiments; making connections between a finding and related concepts and phenomena; combining and synthesizing ideas into new concepts; and critiquing experimental designs.

3) make up a level 1,2,3,4 question about what you learned from the card you received and talking with the person

Ecology and Endangered species

April 25 2017

QFD: the world is its own magic.” ― Shunryu Suzuki
?FD : Have you ever created a website before ? Do u remember the one we created at the beginning of the school year and your password?
Learning Objective: Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment
HS-LS2-8.
Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
1) website creation
2) pick an endangered species to study and investigate

April 26 2017
QFD : Rain in April is abominable,”Like a slap in the face when you expected a kiss.”
?FD : Describe and analyze the methods scientists use to prove the theory of evolution
Learning Objective: HS 2-7 Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity.*

LS4.B: Natural Selection

Natural selection occurs only if there is both (1) variation in the genetic information between organisms in a population and (2) variation in the expression of that genetic information—that is, trait variation—that leads to differences in performance among individuals.
The traits that positively affect survival are more likely to be reproduced, and thus are more common in the population.
LS4.C: Adaptation

Natural selection leads to adaptation, that is, to a population dominated by organisms that are anatomically, behaviorally, and physiologically well suited to survive and reproduce in a specific environment. That is, the differential survival and reproduction of organisms in a population that have an advantageous heritable trait leads to an increase in the proportion of individuals in future generations that have the trait and to a decrease in the proportion of individuals that do not.
Adaptation also means that the distribution of traits in a population can change when conditions change.

Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
1) website design

2) endangered species project ( individual – all sites should be different)

1)Step one , create a website, and pick a endangered species of a plant and animal from the list http://www.earthsendangered.com/search-regions3.asp?search=1&sgroup=allgroups&ID=38

2) Explains the who what where when and why these species have become endangered include pictures and graphs to emphasize your findings ( at least 1-2 paragraphs per section)

3) create a graph using excel or spreadsheet that demonstrates the decline in the species you have chosen over the last 20 years

4) create a conservation management plan (1-2 pages) that illustrates how you would help your chosen species grow their population

5) list the consequences that humans have had on your species and what steps ie. laws could help to ensure that the species will survive and be protected

6) (partners) create a 1 min video that serves as a public service announcement to help your species using all of the information you gathered from your website

(due by Friday- except for video)

April 27 2017

QFD : April showers bring May flowers.. Unless you live near coachella , then your flowers die due to the rain precipitated by the patrons ..
?FD : Describe how genes play a role in evolution of species, be specific
Learning Objective: HS 2-7 Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity.*Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
