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. 

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.

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.  In regardless, the results show what TEKS we need to improve.  I will use more higher level questioning using Bloom's Taxonomy questions.  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.
