    Daily Warm-Up: Combining Learning Objective vs. Agenda

    Worksheet
    Students will fill in the Venn diagram comparing and contrasting the day’s agenda with the learning objective. Students are given the daily agenda and learning objectives. The goal is for students to synthesize what they are learning with what they are doing into a single statement, to make their learning meaningful.

    Pedagogy: When parents ask their kids what they learned today at school, they usually answer “nothing”. Then the kid answers, we learned about “grizzly bears, or read the Great Gatsby, or we did worksheets”. Students almost always answer the context of what they are doing and not the concept behind it. Many school administrators ask for teachers to display their learning objects (also called many other things) so students can see them. The thought behind this is so students know what they are learning about. The problem is the learning objective is not meaningful for the students, so it just becomes an extra thing teachers must do that doesn’t make a difference. The goal of this Venn Diagram is for students to make the learning objective meaningful to their learning.

    Lab
    In this macromolecule lab, students learn about the three food-based biomolecules by testing for triglycerides, glucose, starch, and proteins. Students will use indicator solutions like test strips, paper bag stain test, iodine, and Biuret solution. Students experiment on the following mystery substances: vegetable oil, glucose, corn starch, powdered egg whites, and water.

    Project
    In this cell cycle project, students learn about the cell division by creating a paper flipbook animation that models interphase, mitosis and cytokinesis. Students draw the phases of the cell cycle on each index card, labeling specific structures in the cell and chromosome numbers. You can easily convert this project into a meiosis flip book.

    Lab
    In this enzyme lab, students will discover the effects temperature, pH, and substrate concentration has on enzyme activity. Students will experiment on the enzyme catalase in different foods to determine its qualitative rate of reaction. This enzyme lab asks students to transfer the enzyme activity concepts in this experiment to homeostasis in organisms.
