Reflection: Complex Tasks Cells: Membrane and Nucleus Part 2 - Section 3: Hook

 

The task I'm asking of students today is very complex.  First, they need to understand a difficult concept about the structure and function of the cell membrane and then they need to be able to apply that understanding, using the scientific process, to determine how changing the number of channels would change the particle flow.  

I found that showing and discussing this hook (section) was absolutely crucial to the successes of my labs because it quickly shows me where my students are at in this understanding.  My first class showed me instantly that they understood the question and were ready to go.  My impacted 5th period showed me instantly that they didn't understand.  I knew right away that I had to slow down during period 5 to make more specific connections and explanations and compact some of the explanations and steps in the other periods.
