Students learn in a myriad of ways. VISUAL NOTETAKING engages the students’ minds by using the upper levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy: Apply, Analyze, Evaluate, and Create. It allows students to process ideas in a fun and creative way and keeps the brain actively engaged. Visual identifiers may help boost memory as an added bonus. In all of my first year undergraduate classes I employ Visual Notetaking. This year I lectured on Thucydides in one class and the Apology in the other. I asked my students to work on their Notetaking for a week after the lecture and their assignments were to be turned in just before their mid-term exam. I do think that it helped prepare them for their exam. I AM JUST THRILLED WITH THE RESULTS! The students did such an amazing job – see some of the images below. The image above is way beyond what I expected! 1: SOCRATES AND THE INSANITY DEFENSE. The marking of Visual Notetaking is fairly easy to do compared to marking an essay, for instance. I grade my students on their creativity, on their ability to make connections between ideas, on understanding the lecture, on editing down the lecture to crucial information, and on aesthetics. The results speak for themselves. Most of my students threw themselves into the assignment and my exam grades were higher overall.
If you have multiple tests to make up along with multiple standards, then download the below document (or see the questions below) and include the answers to the questions for the standards you have NOT yet passed. Hopefully you will answer them correctly along with a correctly completed sludge. Make sure to attach your answers to your sludge on the day it’s due. Documents in MS Word and PDF format available for download. Questions for each of the standards that can be used in substitution of meeting the chapter standards. Must be included in your sludge. H.1P.1 Explain how atomic structure is related to the properties of elements and their position in the Periodic Table. Identify your metal/metalloid in your sludge. Draw an atom structure of it. What period/family is it in the periodic table? What about its atomic structure would make it reactive or stable? Explain how the composition of the nucleus is related to isotopes and radioactivity.
Is there a radioactive compound in your sludge? How could you find out if there was one? What part of the atom makes it radioactive? H.1P.2 Describe how different types and strengths of bonds affect the physical and chemical properties of compounds. Identify the bonds in liquids as ionic, covalent or metallic. Would the compound dissolve in water, conduct electricity if dissolved, shares electrons equally or unequally? Do this compound have a strong or weak bond? H.2P.1 Explain how chemical reactions result from the making and breaking of bonds in a process that absorbs or releases energy. Identify an exothermic or endothermic reaction in sludge. What energy release or absorbed in the reaction? Explain how different factors can affect the rate of a chemical reaction. Identify a chemical reaction in your sludge, how could you slow down the reaction and speed it up? H.2P.2 Explain how physical and chemical changes demonstrate the law of conservation of mass. Where did a chemical change happen in your sludge? Was mass destroyed or what happened to the mass?
Thanks for taking the time to put this together so well. This is a very well written hub and information I needed to read. Even the ones with high profile healthy eating adverts swamp the shopper with in your face promotion for processed stuff inside the store. I tend to use the lazy way by using a bread maker. Excellent information, we all need to take note of how our busy life styles and the “Fast Foods” that we eat are influencing our state of health. Hope to read some more of your work. I love this hubpage and the useful information you are giving! Actually, I don’t have any problem with the digestive system (as you might know it well on every Sunday), but I strongly agree that people must eat food sensibly and take good care of their health. You’re welcome. We also understand the importance that it does play in our overall health. If others did too a lot of illnesses could be prevented. Thanks for putting this together. Digestive health is very important and we need to recognize and understand the role it plays in our over all health. Very informative and didactical! With the right foods everyone can have a healthy digestive system.
