    Ms Hatfield’s  Anatomy&Physiology Expectations

     I expect that all of my students will come to class consistently and participate in our classroom of student scientists. When students are absent they lose the ability to collaborate with their fellow students and their team also loses the benefit of their ideas. Students will keep track of their understanding and progress by the use of a science journal where they will record all their ideas, observation, thoughts and data.

    Classroom Expectations:

    Ø  Take responsibility for your learning

    Ø  Come prepared with all science materials

    Ø  Adhere to the 4 Rs (respect for self, others, learning, and the environment)

    Ø  Be safe

    Daily Materials Needed:

    Ø  School binder with a section for Anatomy & Physiology

    Ø  Writing utensils

    Ø  Planner

    Ø  Science Journal (kept in the classroom)

     

    Grading Information:

      The McM science team is using standards based grading following the standards for middle school as set forth by NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).  A four point scale is used in our electronic grading system. 

     

    Course Power Standards

    1. Cell Structure and Function
    2. Cellular Reproduction
    3. Traits and Inheritance
    4. Cells to Systems
      1. Biological Levels of Organization
      2. Respiration and Circulation
      3. Structure and Movement
    5. Science and Engineering Practices/CER

    This is how the four point scale translates in our classroom: 

    *Note: Some proficiency scales are still under construction             

    Cell Structure and Function

    Score 4.0

    In addition to Score 3.0, performance, complexity, sophistication, originality, in-depth inference, synthesis or application that exceeds what is expected to meet the standard. No major errors or omissions regarding score 4 content.

    Score 3.5

    In addition to Score 3.0, performance, partial success at Score 4.0

    Score 3.0

    The student will:

     

    ·       Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.

    ·       Create an analogy for a cell and its organelles

    ·       Differentiate between hypertonic, hypotonic, and isotonic solutions.

    ·       Explain the relationship between cell membrane surface-area-to-volume for the effective transport of cellular materials

    ·       Develop a model showing the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.

    ·       Distinguish between the products and reactants of photosynthesis and cellular respiration and identifies their relationship.

    Score 2.5

    In addition to Score 2.0 performance, partial success at Score 3.0

    Score 2.0

    No major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes but major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes.

     

    The student will:

    ·       Identify how the invention of the microscope led to discoveries about cells, including the cell theory.

    ·       Recognizes that cells are composed mainly of water, proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates.

    ·       Differentiates between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.

    ·       Can name all major cell organelles and describes their functions. 

    o   Nucleus

    o   Cell Membrane

    o   Cell Wall

    o   Cytoplasm

    o   Cytoskeleton

    o   Mitochondria

    o   Chloroplast

    o   Golgi apparatus

    o   Endoplasmic Reticulum

    o   Lysosome

    o   Vacuole

    o   Vesicle

    ·       Describe how materials enter and leave a cell through the cell membrane using passive transport, active transport, endocytosis, and exocytosis.

    ·       Identifies how cells obtain energy from food molecules through cellular respiration and/or fermentation

     

    Score 1.5

    In addition to Score 1.0 performance, partial success at Score 2.0

    Score 1.0

    With help, a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes and some of the more complex ideas and processes.

    Score 0.5

    With help, partial success at Score 1.0.

    Score 0 or IE (Insufficient Evidence)

    Even with help, no understanding or skill demonstrated.

     
     
     

     

    Cell Cycle and Reproduction

    Score 4.0

     

    In addition to Score 3.0, performance, complexity, sophistication, originality, in-depth inference, synthesis or application that exceeds what is expected to meet the standard. No major errors or omissions regarding score 4 content.

    Score 3.5

     

    In addition to Score 3.0, performance, partial success at Score 4.0

    Score 3.0

     

    Target learning goal (No major errors or omissions regarding any of the information and/or processes: simple or complex).

     

    The student will:

    ·       Differentiate and explain the three phases of the cell cycle.

    ·       Creates a model illustrating the process of mitosis

    ·       Compare and contrast diploid versus haploid sets of chromosomes

    Score 2.5

     

    In addition to Score 2.0 performance, partial success at Score 3.0

    Score 2.0

     

    No major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes but major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes.

     

    The student will:

    ·       Identify the 3 phases of the cell cycle: interphase, mitotic phase, and cytokinesis

    ·       Recognizes the results of the cell cycle are important for growth, reproduction, replacement, and repair of cells.
