YouTube - Alien Rescue Tour Video A demonstration of tasks students will be expected to perform.
Phase 1 How did the Alien Rescue software offer relative advantage in comparison to other ways of teaching scientific inquiry that Mr. Leroy had used in the past?
gets students involved • makes experimentation safe • makes the impossible possible • saves money and other resources • allows observation of complex processes • allows repetition with variations
Phase 2 Mr. Leroy designed a five-item survey to assess students’ attitudes toward using this approach to learning science. What kinds of items would you include on such a survey?
Phase 3 Which roles could you assign to individuals in each working group of students to help focus their tasks and make their work more efficient?
Cooperative group roles • Leader • Recorder • Time Keeper • Presenter • Errand Monitor
Phase 4 One of the tasks students completed to collect information was to design and send out space probes, which the Teacher’s Manual said was a fairly complex activity. Why shouldn’t Mr. Leroy create a directions sheet for students on how to do such a complex task?
too much structure works against the purpose and design of software • PURPOSE: • demonstrate a problem-solving approach to assigned problems • work in small groups • create and present new problems and methods to solve them • enjoy using inquiry methods
Phase 5 Mr. Leroy found that students’ scores on the solar system test varied across the class. What could he do to make sure that students were more uniformly successful on this kind of test?
What will we do when they haven’t learned it? (PLC model) • formative assessments • use data to identify struggling students • provide extra support • interventions done by teacher • buddy system • drill and practice/tutorial software • give students multiple attempts to improve test scores
NETS What NETS for Students skills would students learn by completing the Alien Rescue project?
