My experience in developing the assessment was I realized the ideas are pretty endless with what you can create for assessments and that makes it pretty difficult to come up with how you want to assess your students. I also realized it is good to start with a formative assessment, so you have an idea of were your students are with understanding the information, rather then never doing a formative and finishing the whole lesson to give your summative and realize your students did not understand the lesson. Then you have to redo the entire lesson rather then figuring that during the lesson and fixing it. For completing the assignment I realized just like a kid when you think something is just really easy and speed through it, you will make mistakes even when you know the answers. This is exactly what I did when completing my assessment and got two wrong from moving too quick and not double checking my work.


Week 7

Plant Structure – 4.4 The student will investigate and understand basic plant anatomy and life processes. Key concepts include a) the structures of typical plants and the function of each structure

 

  • Students will be able to label and identify the different parts of a plant and their functions given an interactive online drag and drop worksheet, getting at least 3 out of the 4 parts of the plant and their function correct.

 

TCK- In this lesson the technology is the key element, without it there would be no lesson.  The YouTube video the students are to start with will help get them excited about the material and give them a chatty tone to remember the information. Then we also needed technology to be able to create the assessment which was a drag and drop document we created through PowerPoint and we also needed PowerPoint to create the slideshow to give them a more in-depth understanding of the topic

 

PCK- Even though this is an online lesson we still 100% need to know how we are going to teach it. We knew we wanted to start by giving them a fun visual to get their attention, then we knew we also wanted to make sure they were getting the information so included a slide show of the information for them to review however works best for them and then we didn’t want them to get bored when doing the quiz so we knew we wanted to make it interactive. We created a document that they would be able to drag and drop making it slightly more fun than just answering questions. We wanted to create a document that would have different piece of the plant and they would have to construct the plant their selves but we couldn’t quite figure that out yet.
