Reflection: Performance Tasks Maintaining Homeostasis (Part 2/2) - Section 4: Putting It all Together: Designing Your Own Experiment


My students did a great job when they designed and conducted their experiments. They also did an excellent job when they performed their data analysis. However, their final lab reports left much to be desired.  If I had not been there, when they completed some of their performance tasks, I would have never known the extent of their learning. This teaching reflection outlined some strategies that would help my students write lab reports and my plan to help them better back up their claim with evidence.  This is the rubric that the English teacher and I use when grading written reports.
