Day 79: Whiteboards for Understanding


IS I students used the whiteboards today to show me (and themselves) that they understood the osmosis that was taking place in their model cell membranes. With a little prodding, the diagrams revealed some misconceptions and then understanding.


IS II students used the whiteboards to take the “texting” challenge. I returned, and we reviewed, the last quiz that they took in the chemistry unit and we are about to work with motion detectors tomorrow so this made for a great “bridge” activity. The first class really got into it and did a nice job. Thanks to Frank Noschese for the idea!
