Day 14: Board Meeting & CER

AP Physics: Board Meeting

We had our board meeting on the ramp lab. This time, I had students do a gallery walk of the whiteboards prior to the discussion to give them a chance to take a close look at all of the whiteboards. That preview gave students the opportunity to make some more detailed observations, which added nicely to the discussion.

Earth Science: Writing CERs

Both Wednesday and Thursday, we ran out of time to do any wrap-up on the labs, so that was our focus today. Students wrote CERs for both of the labs. This was a good opportunity to think about what makes good reasoning, since we were using lamps, beakers, sand, and thermometers to make statements about Earth’s atmosphere.
