QED 562: Designing Learning Outcomes Bagulan, Ma. Concepcion Pakiding February 16, 2009
What the world would be like without PHOTOSYNTHESIS? A Web Quest for Sec 3 Express (Biology ) Designed by Ms. Ma. Concepcion P. Bagulan firstname.lastname@example.org
Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits and References
Heterotrophs consume plants and they acquire energy from them. But how about plants? Where do they get their energy? How do they feed themselves? What will happen if all autotrophs would disappear? In this activity you will learn all about the complex process of how plants make their food. This process is called photosynthesis. Your group has been assigned a very important task and challenge! Read on to find out how your learning about photosynthesis could save the world!!!
Dark Raider conquered planet earth and wanted everything in total darkness for his eyes gets blurd with too much light. He commanded his troupes to shield the sun and enslave all the earthlings in the production of his food. He consumes tons of food everyday consisting of rice and various dishes mostly vegetables. Clinging for your dear life, being optimistic that with humans still alive there is a greater chance of freeing the earth from the aliens. You want to negotiate with Dart Raider and convince him that you cannot work for him without the sun around.
Your task is to convince the alien leader that the sun is the primary source of energy and How does his move affect photosynthesis of autotrophs.
You will now think of the role of the following: Sunlight Chlorophyll Water and carbon dioxide Sugar and oxygen You would explain to Dark Raider how the following could help you and him to stay alive so that you can serve him better. To do this, you will create an interesting blog which can convince Raider.
The Process Ready ? Begin your task by completing the following steps: 1. View the following sites about photosynthesis. Pay attention to all of the information that are included in these sites. Photosynthesis.http://www.biology.ualberta.ca/facilities/mult imedia/uploads/alberta/Photo.htmlhttp://www.biology.ualberta.ca/facilities/mult imedia/uploads/alberta/Photo.html chloroplast.http://www.tvdsb.on.ca/westmin/science/sbi3a1/Cells/chlor o.htmhttp://www.tvdsb.on.ca/westmin/science/sbi3a1/Cells/chlor o.htm Photosynthesis.http://wps.prenhall.com/wps/media/objects/ 486/498596/CDA7_1/CDA7_1b/CDA7_1b.htmhttp://wps.prenhall.com/wps/media/objects/ 486/498596/CDA7_1/CDA7_1b/CDA7_1b.htm

2. Now you should have a better understanding about photosynthesis. Group yourselves by 4’s. You will be able to make a creative and interesting blog that can convince Dark Raider and save the world. The future of the world is in your hands remember. 3. After making your blog you have to send it to your teacher’s bblogger.
Evaluation Catergory4321 Focus on Topic (Content) There is one clear, well-focused topic. Main idea stands out and is supported by detailed information Main idea is clear but the supporting information is general. Main idea is somewhat clear but there is a need for more supporting information. The main idea is not clear. There is a seemingly random collection of information Introduction (Organization) The introduction is inviting, states the main topic and previews the structure of the paper. The introduction clearly states the main topic and previews the structure of the paper, but is not particularly inviting to the reader. The introduction states the main topic, but does not adequately preview the structure of the paper nor is it particularly inviting to the reader. There is no clear introduction of the main topic or structure of the paper. Conclusion (Organization) The conclusion is strong and leaves the reader with a feeling that they understand what the writer is "getting at." The conclusion is recognizable and ties up almost all the loose ends. The conclusion is recognizable, but does not tie up several loose ends. There is no clear conclusion, the paper just ends Grammar & Spelling (Conventions) Writer makes no errors in grammar or spelling that distract the reader from the content. Writer makes 1-2 errors in grammar or spelling that distract the reader from the content Writer makes 3-4 errors in grammar or spelling that distract the reader from the content Writer makes more than 4 errors in grammar or spelling that distract the reader from the content.
Conclusion Congratulations! Finally! You are done with the Web Quest Hurray!!! A brave move to save our only planet. You may know realized how important the process of photosynthesis is! With the combination of the following: light 6 CO2 + H2O C6H12 O6 + 6 O2 ( Carbon ( water) chlorophyll(Glucose ) (oxygen) Dioxide) Plants and other autotrophs can make organic compounds from inorganic compounds which serves as food for sustaining life on earth. We use plants for food, medicine, clothing, shelter and other products. Now that you are aware what photosynthesis is, use your new knowledge to think about the many ways how you can protect and conserve them for the next generation of living things. Make sure you have completed your blog. Thank you for exerting effort in completing this Web Quest.
