Reflection: Pacing Cellular Respiration - Problem Solving - Section 3: Hook

 

This is a difficult lesson to pace out because it has to stretch over two days or be done in a block period. Below are some different options that I've found work well.

2 days - "Real" Lab

Day 1 

  • Hook prelab
  • Lab set up and discussion
  • Lab write-up prep - Title, purpose, hypothesis, procedure, data tables set up

Day 2

  • Collect data
  • Analysis
  • Conclusion

Block Period- Virtual Lab

Use computers for each pair of students and follow the procedure on the virtual lab.  I've had good luck with setting up a group of students that might need more support and spending most of my time with them.  At the end of the lesson, students print out their lab reports and turn them in.

2 days - Virtual Lab

In this situation, you should project the lab on a screen or SMARTBoard and the students write their own lab reports.  I type in gibberish on the screen to advance the screen to the point where I need it to be.

Day 1-

  • Hook prelab
  • Lab set up and discussion
  • Lab write-up prep- Title, purpose, hypothesis, procedure, data tables set up

Day 2

  • Collect data
  • Analysis
  • Conclusion
