Reflection: Student Feedback Photosynthesis - Plants' Greatest Gift - Section 5: Evaluate


As can be seen in the video, students have acquired knowledge through these activities and videos.  Students have built upon their prior knowledge as seen by student explanation of product and reactants of photosynthesis, including chemical formula. Most importantly students provided evidence of explaining the importance of photosynthesis as a life process and its impact in our world today. Finally students were able to summarize what they learned by using evidence from lesson activities to explain the process of photosynthesis.  In other words students were able to construct a scientific explanation for photosynthesis. (SP6 - Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions).  In terms of misconceptions, it is clear that my male student believes that the Venus Flytrap doesn't go through the process of photosynthesis, incorrectly stating that the plant only obtains nutrients by eating flies.  I used this feedback to clear up this (fairly common) misconception with the whole class the next time we met.
