Revised Assignment #1

I’m one of those who are confused of what and how to do Assignment #1. After I posted my assignment I realized that what I have done is actually for Assignment #2, so I’m hoping that my work though it late will be consider by my FIC ( Teacher Malou…please..please..please).
Elementary Mathematics: Data Management
1. These are the skills and products that will be valued in my class.
Learning Objectives:
• Students should be able to acquire data through surveys.
• Students should be able to display data using bar graphs.
• Students should be able to interpret data and give a relevant recommendation.
2. These comprise the prior knowledge that I need my students to activate.
• Think-Pair-Share ( 10 minutes )
Ask yourself the three most common reasons for being late in class. Compare your answer to your classmate next to you. Find other four classmates to compare your answer. Share your answer and the result of your comparison with other students.
3. These are the teaching- learning activities we will engage in to develop the skills.
• Create a survey that will be given to all 10th grade students to know the 5 most common reasons of coming late to class.
• Make a graph that will show the survey data.
• Compare the graph with the other groups and give suggestion on a possible solution regarding the student’s late problem.
4. My Version: This is how I will modify the task to make it more suitable to assess the students in my class.
Design Task Activity
Title: Reasons for Being Late to Class
Background: Most of the 10th grade teachers are complaining about the chronic student tardiness. As the SBG- President you and the rest of the officers were assigned to find out the main reasons for being late in class.
Task: Each group will create a survey questionnaire to find out different reasons for being late in class. Each group will present their data by using a bar graph. Compare the result of your findings with another group and recommend some possible solution to student tardiness.
Audience: The audience for this survey data is the 10th grade teachers.
Purpose: The purpose of your graph is to show the 10th grade teachers the 5 main reasons for coming late to class and the number of students who have the same reason.
Procedure:
1. Divide the SBG officers into three groups.
2. Each group creates a survey questionnaire about “why students are late in class?”
3. Assume that there are nine sections in 10th grade each group will give the survey in 3 different sections.
4. Make a graph summarizing your group data.
5. Join with other group. Compare your graph with their graph. Find the 5 top most reasons for being late in class and prepare your written recommendation.
6. Present your graph to show your findings to all 10th grade teachers.
7. Present your written recommendation of possible solutions that will address the problem of students coming late to class.
5. I will use these criteria to gauge my students’ performance/skills/ products.
Bar Graph Scoring Rubric: (5 points each)
1. Demonstrate an understanding about the problem. ________ point (s)
2. The bar graph has all parts labeled correctly. ________ point (s)
3. The graph is colorful and lines are neatly drawn ________ point (s)
Presentation Scoring Rubric: (5 points)
4. Present a comprehensive and clear explanation about the collected data. ________ point (s)
Recommendation Scoring Rubric: (5 points each)
5. The idea is clear, fresh, and original ________ point (s)
6. The recommendation is doable. ________ point (s)
TOTAL: ________/ 30 points

High School Science: Water Quality
1. These are the skills and products that will be valued in my class.
Learning Objectives:
• Students will be able to apply the steps of scientific method.
• Students will be able to record and analyze test result.
• Students will be able to report the investigation findings.
2. These comprise the prior knowledge that I need my students to activate.
To activate student’s prior knowledge, I will use the Virtual Lab activity available at
http://www.glencoe.com/sites/common_assets/science/virtual_labs/CT04/CT04.html
3. These are the teaching- learning activities we will engage in to develop the skills.
• Follow the steps of the scientific method.
• Conduct the drinking water testing using the test kits.
• Tabulate or graph the collected data
• Analyze the result of the investigation
• Oral report
4. My Version: This is how I will modify the task to make it more suitable to assess the students in my class.
Design Task Activity
Title: Drinking Water Testing
Background: Rain water is the primary drinking water supply for most of the islanders in Majuro who cannot afford to buy bottled drinking water. Rainwater catchment system is vulnerable to bacterial contamination. In Marshall Islands High School is most populated public school and have 10 rainwater catchment for drinking water. The school nurse reports a high cases of diarrhea, and the common to most student was drinking water from the catchment. The Principal asked the Science Club to conduct an investigation about the water contamination issue.
Task: Science Club members will work together to conduct a water quality testing around the school water catchment. Use the investigation data to prove or disprove the hypotheses. Report the result of the investigation to the school administration, staff, and PTA officers.
Audience: The audiences in this activity are school administration, staff, and PTA officers.
Purpose: The purpose of your investigation is to test the water catchment for contamination that is the possible caused of diarrhea cases in school.
Procedure:
1. Distribute 10 sterile bottles to members and get sample water from each water catchment in the campus. Water sample will be tested from total coli forms and E. coli.
2. Using the drinking water test kits, follow the procedures below:
o Put the sample water into a bacterial test vial
o Wait for 12 hours, for the result- if the water remains clear- it means negative from contamination and if it turns black means positive from contamination.
3. Summarize the data and prepare to report the findings.

5. I will use these criteria to gauge my students’ performance/skills/ products.
Scoring Rubric
1. Lab report is arranged accordingly. (10 Points) ________ points
2. The data is tabulated or graph in a way that is easy to understand. (10 points) ________ points
3. Detailed discussion of the evidence is provided. (10 points) ________ points
4. The conclusion is strong and well summarized. (10 points) ________ points
TOTAL: ________/ 40 points
