Environmental Science Pollution and Superfund Sites Environmental Science Pollution and Superfund Sites Betsy Burtzlaff Newell School District
Objectives The students will discover the effects humans have on their environmental surroundings. They will do this through reading and comprehension of articles of scientific research concerning pollution, polluted sites and pollution resistant beings.
Activity Pre-activities 1. Students will watch clip from the movie Civil Action 2.Students will complete the questions using the provided websites (see http://www.elmhurst.edu/~chm/onlcourse/c hm110/issues/issue6B98.html) http://www.elmhurst.edu/~chm/onlcourse/c hm110/issues/issue6B98.html 3.Student will fill in the notes from an outline downloaded from WebCT 4. Students will download questions from WebCT, complete and re-submit.
1. How will I get the content in to the TabletPC so you can use the power of digital ink and other Tablet tools? Question from the video Civil Action downloaded from WebCT Notes Unit questions Webpage hyperlinked rubrics for a PointPoint and brochure at bb031.k12.sd.us
2. How will the students receive their portion of the assignment? Website hyperlink at bb031.k12.sd.us Web CT
3. What will the students be doing during the lesson presentation? Notes using journal digital ink Questions using journal digital ink PowerPoint Publisher
4. How will the student portion be submitted to you for evaluation? Notes will be filed in their Journal folder Questions will be submitted into a shared file and graded Brochures will be printed prior to their presentations and graded per the rubric PowerPoints will be submitted into a shared file that is closed two days prior to presentations and graded per the rubric
5. How will you use the TabletPC to evaluate the student work? Questions will be retrieved, graded and returned via Web CT Brochures hardcopies will be graded per the rubric As presentations are given, the teacher will follow the rubric given, making notes on hand-out pages (see Journal example)Journal example
6. What will be the strategy to return completed assignment to your student? Questions will be returned via Web CT Notations on the PowerPoints will be returned to a graded shared folder Rubrics for the brochures and presentation will be returned as a hard copy
7. Will there be time when the lids will be down on the student computers? Students will use their computers for taking notes, answering the unit questions and creating their brochures and PowerPoints
8. Describe what challenges might arise for managing the classroom. We currently use NetOp to monitor the students where-abouts when on internet. With this unit the student must e-mail or call EPA headquarters through-out Region 8, so getting the information from the EPA directors can be challenging. The students will all be at different levels of familiarity with the tablets, therefore a lot of computer teaching will have to take place
9. How repeatable is this lesson strategy for lessons you be teaching? This unit used a variety of technological devices, just becoming efficient with them a challenge
10. Other considerations Make sure you have the Tech Support restrict access to the Final Presentation Folder at a specific time so students all have the same amount of time to complete their projects. Constantly monitor their progress with weekly progress checkoffs
