six facets of understanding
Six Facets of Understanding
  • Explanation
  • Interpretation
  • Application
  • Perspective
  • Empathy
  • Self-Knowledge
enduring understanding
Enduring Understanding:
  • Understand how the relative movements of the Earth, moon, and sun account for the observed moon phases.
example activities
Example Activities
  • Here are some examples that show how each facet can be used as the basis of a Stage 3 activity aligned with the enduring understanding.
explanation
Explanation
  • Students use a light bulb (sun) and an orange (moon) to give an explanation of how the moon phases are formed from the perspective of Earth (their head).
interpretation
Interpretation
  • Students research historical explanations of the phases of the Moon (e.g. Aristotle, Plutarch, cultural stories, etc.).
application
Application
  • Students are given Galileo’s original 1612 drawing of the phases of Venus. Using a light bulb and an orange, students verify these observations and document the relative positions of the sun, Venus, and Earth that produce these phases.
perspective
Perspective
  • Students are shown a picture of the Earth from the moon when the Earth is in a waning gibbous phase and then they discuss the relationship of the sun-Earth-moon positions that account for Earth’s appearance.
empathy
Empathy
  • Students consider the following scenario: A visitor from another planet, a female alien named Myrna, visited your school last weekend. Myrna’s planet has no moons orbiting it. Put yourself in Myrna’s place. What might it be like to live on a planet without a moon? How might life on Earth be different without a moon?
self knowledge
Self-Knowledge
  • Students in small groups compare their postconception quiz with their preconception quiz and discuss how their answers changed.
examining units
Examining Units
  • Look for Stage 3 activities that effectively use the six facets to promote deep and enduring understanding.
