Students were tasked with completing their lab report Introduction sections and creating a graph of their data. Previously, students were instructed to write their own Introduction sections. However, given the time constraints, students were encouraged to collaborate today and create one strong Introduction section per lab group. Prior to collaborating, students reviewed one particularly strong Introduction section written by one of my students. After completing Introduction paragraphs, students worked with their lab partners to create at least one graph of their data. Many students used class time to work on the classroom computers, with encouragement to use Microsoft Excel as the graphing program.
With the short Friday, students were directed to spend their time on one of the following activities:
- Peer editing lab report
- Continue typing lab report
- Check grades in Illuminate
- Check folder for missing work
- Print out missing work
The semester ends January 23, the same day lab reports are due. There is no school Monday, January 19, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
