Formative Assessment Lesson Plan By: Victoria Vogel
What I think formative assessment is? What I have learned in this workshop. Formative assessment • The goal of formative assessment is to monitor student learning to provide ongoing feedback that can be used by instructors to improve their teaching and by students to improve their learning. More specifically, formative assessments: • help students identify their strengths and weaknesses and target areas that need work • help faculty recognize where students are struggling and address problems immediately
Bell ringer for today’s lesson Students will manipulate prior information • Why do you suppose that all the ingredients in our recipe today , Buffalo Chicken Dip, will work together so nicely? • How does a microwave work? • When was the first microwave invented?
Discussion of our feedback from our prior knowledge, data collected • Microwave ovens are a modern convenience that many people may take for granted. This super-invention has taken cooking to a new level, allowing what typically takes 15 to 20 minutes to be done in just 30 seconds. Microwave ovens were invented in 1946 by Dr. Percy Spencer and became regulated by the FDA for safety in 1971, ensuring every household could enjoy this powerful invention without any adverse affects on their personal health.Read more: http://www.ehow.com/info_8031806_microwaves-work.html#ixzz2uLfAmEuv
What does a microwave do to food? Recall of prior knowledge, data collected • Most foods contain water, so Dr. Spencer invented a form of cooking that takes advantage of water's reactivity. When you turn on a microwave, the oven begins releasing a radiation wavelength that is customized to water. When the water molecules in the food are hit with the waves, they begin moving around and bumping into each other. The friction caused by the water molecules heats the remaining food molecules, resulting in a complete cooking reaction.Read more: http://www.ehow.com/info_8031806_microwaves-work.html#ixzz2uLfPbr6v
Do not put this in the microwave,prior knowledge, investigation lab, used u-tube • Simply put, anything that is still alive, such as pets and other animals, should never be put in a microwave oven, or you will kill it. Additionally, breast milk should never be microwaved because the wavelengths will kill the living antibody cells found in the milk. The milk may be heated and taste fine to the baby, but it will not have the usual health advantages of breast milk. Finally, fresh vegetables should never be placed in a microwave without adding water to them. This is because the existing water in their cells will leave the cells, resulting in a very rigid vegetable instead of a softly steamed edible plant.Read more: http://www.ehow.com/info_8031806_microwaves-work.html#ixzz2uLfYqr28
How do the waves work? Prior knowledge, use knowledge, analysis, retrieval • Microwaves are sent out by the unit's magnetron tube. A magnetron tube is a 2450 MHz producing diode-type electron tube that draws energy from your electrical outlet and converts it into the required frequencies. Magnetrons are made up of an anode (plate), filament (heater), antenna (loop) and magnets (magnetic field producers). The magnets are spun inside the magnetron and the field produced is focused into the cavity of the microwave ovenRead more: http://www.ehow.com/info_8031806_microwaves-work.html#ixzz2uLfmgoso
Are we safe around microwaves?prior knowledge, data storage • Microwave ovens are completely safe. The frequency that microwaves operate at is within the non-ionizing spectrum of radiation. However, the frequencies in a microwave oven do produce a thermal effect that can cause damage to living tissue if exposed for too long at a high enough frequency. Some effects on the human body that have been reported in studies include cataracts and possible links to cancer. To avoid any exposure, stand at least 1 foot away from the microwave while it is operating.Read more: http://www.ehow.com/info_8031806_microwaves-work.html#ixzz2uLfvW192
Lab time Questionnaire to be filled out/ take out blank paper and copy: ( higher order questions) do the students understand the lesson? • What do you notice about Frank’s Hot sauce, compared to other sauces we have used? • How does this dip compare to the other dips we have made in lab? • What did you see, taste, and feel when eating the Buffalo Chicken Dip today? • Did the microwave preform as you expected? • What do you notice about cooking in glass dish ware?
The recipe: our strategy today, safely use the microwave by student demonstration • Buffalo Chicken Dip • Prep, cook chicken in skillet as discussed, season to your liking, pulled apart • Caution: salmonella • In glass dish microwave: cooked chicken, cream cheese, ranch dressing, Frank’s hot sauce, cheddar cheese • Microwave: cover dish, 5 minutes, rotate dish • Microwave : cover ,5 minutes
