AP Biology: Working with the Labs

September 28, 2013

Waksman Institute


Greetings!

  • Help yourself to coffee and doughnuts!

  • Please sign in and pick up an index card.

  • On the index, write:

    • Your name

    • The subjects you currently teach/responsible for

    • A technique in AP Bio that works for you


Agenda

  • Introduction

  • Take on the role of student as we complete the photosynthesis lab and summarize our findings

  • Complete a peer review of our findings

  • Resume our roles as teachers and delve into the science practices and how they relate to AP Biology curriculum and framework

  • Become familiar with the other labs and how they relate to the science practices


Introduction

  • AP Biology Leadership Academy

    • http://apbio.bscs.org/

  • APSII

  • AP Biology Community

  • NABT Ecosystem http://www.nabt.org/ecosystem/


Let’s consider the roles of teachers and students in AP Biology

  • What are the characteristics of effective teaching and learning in an AP Biology class?

    • What are the teachers doing?

    • What are the students doing?


Investigation 5Photosynthesis

  • What factors affect the rate of photosynthesis?

  • Go to mw.concord.org/modeler

  • Scroll down to harvest light

  • Read and answer question on pages 1 and 2


What is light? What did you learn about the relationship between light and green leaves?


Choosing a Variable


Reporting Your Findings

  • Graph your data

  • What are your trends, changes or differences?

  • What do those trend/changes/differences mean?

  • Write a caption under your graph. Link the trends/changes/differences to what they mean.


Peer Review

  • Read the other posters and consider what they are reporting.

  • Read and consider the work.

  • Write a post-it note beginning with “I wonder……..” or “I noticed……..”


Reflection

  • As students, what did you do?

  • What other concepts in biology are related to this?

  • What new information did you reveal by doing your experiment?


Curriculum is……..


Two Aspects of AP Biology Curriculum


The Investigations—one way students learn

  • Science Practices and Investigations

    • Levels of Inquiry

    • FRQs


Basic Tenets of Teaching

  • We can’t know where we’re going, until we acknowledge where we’ve been

  • We need to connect ideas and provide a framework where we hang our ideas and concepts.

  • We have to talk about how we will get there.
