Reflection: Relevance Mass and Volume Lab - Part 1 - Section 1: Engage

 

I select unit conversion error scenarios that appeal to the interests of my students.  For instance, I give sports scenarios to groups of student athletes.  This helps them to connect to the information and understand the importance of the content I am trying to convey using a context to which they can relate.  For this activity, I did not use scenarios in which unit conversion errors had lethal consequences as I felt this was unnecessary for the accomplishment of the activity.

In addition to selecting scenarios that appeal to student interests, I provide students with scenarios written at their reading comprehension levels.  This allows me to differentiate to best meet the students' needs.
