Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines What Do Caves and Oceans Have in Common? - Section 4: Lab Wrap - Results and Conclusion to Clean Up


Sometimes more time is needed for the lab and discussion. Next time I do this lesson, I plan to do the 'Lab - Wrap Up' section during a guided writing time. My students need the time to articulate their ideas in writing.

By the time I give directions, we have a discussion on the lab, and review what should be included in their results and conclusion, there is not much time for them to do their best work on their writing.

By moving this section to a writing block, I can address the common core standards and science practices 8:

"Students write formative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section."

Students have an topic to write about, so I can work with them to develop a well written result and conclusion.
