Reflection: Rigor Day 1- What Happens to Some Forms of Matter When Temperatures Increase and Decrease? (Cornerstone) - Section 4: Reflect on Day 1


RERUN Strategy

At the end of class, I have my students reflect on their stations experience in  their interactive notebook to complete “RERUN” Strategy. The “RERUN” strategy is designed to facilitate reflection on learning experiences, “What did the student do?”, How did they learn it?”, and “What did the student learn?” For me, this strategy provides insight to what the students have learned and/or misconceptions from the activity.  It is an opportunity to determine if the learning goals/objectives were met. In this case, how does adding and removing heat effect matter?  From students written pieces, I recognize many students are aware of the changes adding and removing heat make upon an another material. In addition, I realized some students struggled with determining mass of the material before and after it was heated. In most cases, students forgot to reset their scales to zero before placing their item on it to record the mass.  It is at that point, I knew I needed to review using the the mass scale again tomorrow (prior to the finishing up the stations.)

The strategy is pasted in the front of students’ interactive notebook allowing him or her to be reminded of each letter and writing task. Each letter stands one component of the activity to think about. 

Recall: Summarize in your own words what you did in the activity.

Explain:  Explain the purpose of the activity.

Results:   Describe the result of the activity and what they mean.

Uncertainties:  Describe what you are still unsure about.

New:  Write at least 2 new things that you learned from this lab
