Re: [EASCI] Entry 1
- Why do you think you messed up? I see web research mentioned. Did the students do this? If so, you sound like you've got it covered, just be sure to go into plenty of detail about and have artifacts showing how this technology was used in the lesson.Donna M. Petty

everything these days. I think I must have missed something in Entry
1 about technology. I teach 8th grade physical science and have been
doing chemistry. I have been writing up my unit on naming chemical
compounds and writing chemical formulas.
I began the unit with the kids doing the steel wool/water test tube
lab and had them predict what they thought would happen after a few
days. Then I had them do an activity so I could assess their prior
understanding of counting atoms where they drew and colored atoms
for different expressions such as H2O and 3H2SO4. Over the course of
the unit we learn about bonds and chemical dangers around the home.
For my 2nd sample, I used an jigsaw approach to a web search. The
students chose topics such as lead poisoning, bioremediation,
uses/sources of ocher (Fe2O3), oil spills, art of frescoes, etc. and
they presented their research orally to the class. (We just got new
computers and do not have powerpoint) The students wrote letters
about the things they were most surprised to learn about.
Additionally they found microimages of common compounds around them
while on the net. The 3rd sample was at the end of the unit and was
a poster showing how they had learned to recognize the names of
binary compounds in everyday products and write the formula.
Have I messed up?
