Day 138: Free Response & Review

AP Physics: Free Response

I made today an optional in-class retake day. Since some students wanted the full hour to do multiple learning targets, I decided to skip doing some multiple choice on Plickers and gave students some free response problems from the 2015 AP exam. On Monday, we’ll take a look at the scoring guides.

Earth Science: Review

Students generated some questions for each learning target on whiteboards, then traded with other groups to try and answer the questions they came up with. I’ve been doing this a lot in my Earth Science classes, and its fun to see the improvement this year, even with students I only have for one tri. A lot of teachers in my building are working getting students to ask high-level questions as part of using AVID instructional strategies, and its neat to see that paying off a bit.
