1b: Get to Know You Sheet

Sheet given at the beginning of the year reveals crucial information. This student was able (and felt comfortable) to tell me they were trans because of this sheet. That info is not stored within the gradebook system.

1c: Lesson Goals on Lesson Plan

Lesson goals that span over the whole unit


1d: Youtube Videos

Experiments that would otherwise not be possible to execute were already available via online resources. Video


1e: Two-Week Look Ahead

One tool for planning and communicating to others the trajectory of the course.

1b: Google Forms Survey

Google Forms allowed me to collect reflective feedback from students in a private setting in order to learn more about them and modify my own teaching at the same time. 


1c: Lesson Goals on Slides

Lesson goals that span the day's lesson and similar subiquent days.

1d: Graphics (Gifs) 

Utilizing images, graphics, diagrams, etc. in science is crucial. They can provide a framework for representing ideas, both for learning and demonstrating learning. Most, if not all, slides had some sort of graphic or image. 


1e/f: Progression of Topics Prerequisites

Topics in physics are build upon each other in almost every respect. Understanding the progression of what is required is crucial. See example from a lesson plan within the Projectile Motion unit. 


Lesson Planning 

The Buggy Lab - 10/04/2019 & 10/07/2019

This lab has students designing and conducting an experiment in order to collect motion data about the “Tumble Buggies”. Students will run multiple trials where they mark the position vs time of the moving buggies, graph the data, and calculate introductory statistical analysis on the data. The students will then answer questions about the data, compare their data to other groups, and reach a class definition of Accuracy and Precision. This lab will also teach lab skills, such as lab safety, taking measurements, and designing experiments.
