All Lesson Plans follow this format: 

1.) What I am doing or the TEK Objective is listed below under each day of the week.

2.) I will do a combination of strategies from Four Corners during Interaction of students to tactile Kinesthetic-PBL Based Startegy in the lab. In the Four Corner Study Groups, my students will use Purposeful Talk (Unit Vocabulary) to interact with their lab-study partner in a meaningful way with the lesson at hand.  Where I function more like a facilitator and much of the learning is happening from the BRIONES MILC Strategy where they use multiple inputs and the group leader re-teaches the concept to his or her partner.  I also use the auditory strategy called the "Lesson In The Lyric" (link to the "Lesson In The Lyric" for the first Unit on the Scientific Method:  https://www.reverbnation.com/professorpaul247/song/23331993-phat-cac, a strategy produced by yours truly using the Multiple Intelligence Theory of Dr. Howard Gardner from Harvard.  To learn more about what Dr. Gardner has to say about my MIT Approach to my Science Lessons, visit the following link: http://www.virtualscienceuniversity.com/news.aspx?id=034372a1-aaa1-4fb7-b4fe-051db0f379b7   To learn more about the PBL Based Strategy visit my business science education website at  the above business link highlighted in blue: http://www.virtualscienceuniversity.com

3.) I give a written Pre-Post Test for every single Unit in Biology and Anatomy & Physiology.  In IPC, I give an Oral Pre-Test and many times also a written Pre-Test.  In Biology, we have a Six Weeks CBA Test to determine where students are.  I am terribly disappointed with the CBA Test results for several reasons.  I did not like the questions on the test and that is partly my fault because I should have met with the Test Maker and should have insisted to change some of the questions.  I got caught in a time crunch with so many things happening and I did not have a chance to meet with the CBA Test Maker!  In regardless, the results show what TEKS we need to improve.  Where I need the most improvement is with my ELL students! I am now using some of the strategies I learned from my Sheltered Instruction Workshop that went for four days last semester.  I am slowly down when I use Unit Vocabulary words and I try to talk very slow to allow my ELL students to grasp the meaning of the terms.  I am also using picture graphics whenever I can to get my subgroup student populations to grasp the concept.  I will use more higher level questioning using Bloom's Taxonomy questions with all students.  I will have to go slow with this technique with my IPC students.  In my last fifteen years of my teaching career, I have attended several Bloom's Taxonomy Workshops in regards to my Pre-AP continous training.  I also attended a C-Scope TEA Sponsored this past summer in San Antonio.  There I learned high level questioning techniques that I can use with my students.

4.) In Biology and A & P, if a student does not make a 70 on the Post Test, they will listen to the Lecture again online or come to tutoring early in the morning during zero period or Jacket Time.  If student fails to meets its responsibility of doing the Lecture online and redoing the Post Test and making a 70 or above on the Post Test or Major Test, and refusing to come in for tutoring during zero period, the issue will be reported to you, the parent, and to Mr. Ford and the front office. 

This is the first week of the of the Spring Semester.

January 25th-January 29th

I am using this week to re-introduce and re-enforce the Science Processes to all of my students! I will also go over Final Exam and CBA Test results and begin to use my Lecture Strategy of me slowing down and pronouncing slowly all of the Unit Vocabulary Terms.  I am also emphasizing more purposeful talk from my Four Corner Lab and Study Groups! I am running behind where I should be with my YAG and I am starting to get a little frustrated! I have decided to cover concepts more in depth especially with my Human Genome Project in Biology and also my Human Genetics Pedigree Project in Biology.  These two projects will take my Pre-AP Biology students to the mid of this Six Weeks.  On top of this, I have the majority of my Pre-AP Biology students in UIL Activities and that is impacting the time YAG alotment of each unit! On top of this, on Friday's, we have to work the maintenance of the new Kermit High School Botanical Garden that we are developing.  In Friday during the months of February, March, and April, we have to work out in the Botanical Garden if we are to have our Kermit Botanical Garden ready to showcase it to our community, state, and nation on Friday, April 22nd, which is this year's EARTH Day! My Pre-AP Biology students, my HOPE Club, and one of my IPC classes where I have the biggest number of 504, SPED, and ELL students are also participating working hard on the Botanical Garden on Fridays and sometimes after school on Monday and Wednesday afternoons and also some Saturdays.  It is critical that we stay on pace if we are to get this garden happening.

This is the second week for the Spring Semester at Yellowjacket Land.

February 2-6, 2015

Anatomy and Physiology:

TEKS 10A and 10B

This week in A & P, we will start the Anatomy of the Human and Cat Heart.  We will cover, Pulmonary, Coronary, and Systemic Circulation.  I have over 36 Power Point Slides that I will cover and they will also do Illustrations of the External and Internal Structures of the Human Heart.

Pre-AP Biology

 

TAKS:  TEK 6D

 

This week we will be studying Human Genetics in Biology.  We will hit hard the Unit Vocabulary and on Thursday will begin our Human Genetics Family Pedigree.  This will be a fun activity for my Pre-AP Biology students.  I will also re-inforce the Mendelian Genetics Lecture 15 from my VSU Website will be done live.  For more info, visit www.virtualscienceuniversity.com/previews/Genetics

 

IPC TEK  (10) Science Concepts. The student knows the use of the Periodic Table and can distinguish between Elements, Isotopes, and Radioisotopes.

This week we will be learning about the Periodic Table, Periods, Groups, Isotopes, and Radioisotopes. We will look up elements that make up the majority of our atmoshere and our bodies and learn the atomic number, atomic weight, and boling point of each one of these elements that we will study.  On Friday, we will personalize the Periodic Table by selecting an element which may have the initials of our first and last names and the atomic number and atomic weight remind the student of a personal event.  It is about helping these young people internalizing the Periodic Table Concept.

The instruction and delivery of the lessons is based on BRIONES MILC and the Multiple Intelligence Theory.  The lessons will have Kinesthetic, Visual, and Auditory Components.

Week Three

February 8-12, 2016

A & P

In A & P, this week we will finish up dissecting the Heart inside and out.  We will do a summary of our three day dissection of the Heart on Friday. If we finish early on Friday, we will do the introduction to the Respiratory System.
