================================================

Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have

more than 100 State Tests on their shoulders

- and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes to teach their class.

But I've been whipping the State

while teaching an average of 110 students per year

- and with only about 38 minutes for science class!

It's a matter of public record:

I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average

of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.

And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.

I've done this in a

High-Poverty, Title 1 school

in the Appalachian Mtns.

with:

No Teaching Assistants,

No Tutors,

No Remediation Class,

and

No Test-Prep books or programs.

So what are my kids doing???

Bossy Brocci worksheets

====================================

Note:

With the Cause and Effect

Graphs & Sentences Lessons,

you finally have the elusive antidote

to the kid (usually a boy) who flies through everything.

You know the type:

the kid who half-a$$es his way through your quizzes, tests,

and even breathing - just to get ‘em done.

This is the kid who,

after being told to go read 57 pages in his textbook,

miraculously returns to your desk three minutes later

- - - proclaiming he’s finished that too.

You know who I’m talking about.

Don’t deny it.

He’s the reason you've been longing for a Housecall - - -

from Dr. Kevorkian.

Well . . .

don't pick up that phone (or Ouija board) just yet,

because the apathetic juggernaut “Little Jimmy” just met his match.

Little Jimmy and the rest of your students will have to

translate a graphed relationship between two variables,

and then write about that relationship

by choosing to use: ‘increase’ ‘increases’ ‘raises’ ‘higher’ ‘decrease’ ‘decreases’

‘drops’ ‘lowers’ ‘lower’ etc. in 6 complete sentences!

If you’re worried that Little Jimmy can write these sentences

any which way he can just to get it over with - - -

well . . . he CAN’T.

Little Jimmy won’t have it “finished” until he follows the rules

- - - MY rules.

And that's because I’ve already prescribed a template for how

each and every sentence is to be worded and written

– right down to the very order & grammar for every sentence.

That means even apathetic Little Jimmy’s wrong answers

must be correctly written before he can turn ‘em in.

And until he does that???

- - - Little Jimmy won’t be “done” with squat.

Because of TpT’s character limitations, if you want more info on what your kids will be doing, simply pull up each individual Lesson that’s listed below, in another tab or window.

2) Convert those verbal statements into mathematical or graphical statements by DRAWING 4 generic Positive or generic Negative relationship Line Graphs on pre-labeled simple axes containing the following 4 pairs of Dependent and Independent variables:

Surface and Volume Concentration of Water vs. Salinity

Oxygen Absorption and Capacity vs. Surface and Volume Concentration of Water

Dissolved Oxygen vs. Oxygen Absorption and Capacity

and

Dissolved Oxygen vs. Salinity

3) Translate each of their 4 constructed mathematical facts or graphs into 6 verbal statements by WRITING (yes, writing) six SENTENCES below each graph that explain the relationship between the dependent and independent variable – expressed in 6 different ways. That’s writing 6 unique sentences for each relationship in 4 graphs, for a total of writing 24 statements (minus my single example)

[A fellow teacher told me that WRITING something just once is the equivalent of reading it 7 times]

4) Construct a Cause and Effect written Summary of Salinity’s connection to Dissolved Oxygen by ANALYZING each of 4 completed graphs, then WRITING “If A causes B . . . and B causes C . . . Then A leads to C . . .” types of statements

AIR PRESSURE, ELEVATION and DISSOLVED OXYGEN + QUIZ

Students will:

1) Analyze Data Table A containing Solubility of Oxygen in Freshwater across 8 select Atmospheric Pressures at 3 different Celsius Temperatures

2) Draw a Triple Line Graph of Dissolved Oxygen/Solubility of Oxygen for the 3 different Celsius Temperatures across the 8 given Atmospheric Pressures – by using the Data Table provided above the graph to complete the pre-scaled and pre-labeled graph below that data

3) Analyze Data Table B containing Solubility of Oxygen in Freshwater across 8 select Elevations (in Feet) at 3 different Fahrenheit Temperatures

4) Draw a Triple Line Graph of Dissolved Oxygen/Solubility of Oxygen for the 3 different Fahrenheit Temperatures across the 8 given Elevations – by using the Data Table provided above the graph to complete the pre-scaled and pre-labeled graph below that data

5) Use deductive reasoning and cause-and-effect logic with their preceding Data Tables and Graphs to derive

and DRAW 3 generic Positive or generic Negative relationship Line Graphs on pre-labeled simple axes containing the following 3 pairs of Dependent and Independent variables:

Atmospheric Pressure or Air Pressure vs. Elevation

Dissolved Oxygen vs. Atmospheric Pressure or Air Pressure

and

Dissolved Oxygen vs. Elevation

6) Answer a quiz featuring 50 multiple-choice questions – based on their preceding Calculations, Observations and Analysis of the Relationship between Atmospheric Pressure or Air Pressure, Elevation and Dissolved Oxygen

7) Write a short to long-answer response to the BONUS question, explaining the different Elevation distribution of Brook Trout (or Speckled Trout) and Brown Trout

AIR PRESSURE, ELEVATION and DISSOLVED OXYGEN Cause and Effect GRAPHS

Students will:

1) READ 3 small selections of Informational Text (Quick Facts) about various dependent and independent variables associated with Elevation, Air Pressure and Dissolved Oxygen

2) Convert those verbal statements into mathematical or graphical statements by DRAWING 3 generic Positive or generic Negative relationship Line Graphs on pre-labeled simple axes containing the following 3 pairs of Dependent and Independent variables:

Atmospheric Pressure or Air Pressure vs. Elevation

Dissolved Oxygen vs. Atmospheric Pressure or Air Pressure

and

Dissolved Oxygen vs. Elevation

3) Translate each of their 3 constructed mathematical facts or graphs into 6 verbal statements by WRITING (yes, writing) six SENTENCES below each graph that explain the relationship between the dependent and independent variable – expressed in 6 different ways. That’s writing 6 unique sentences for each relationship in 3 graphs, for a total of writing 18 statements (minus my single example)

[A fellow teacher told me that WRITING something just once is the equivalent of reading it 7 times]

4) Construct a Cause and Effect written Summary of Elevation's connection to Dissolved Oxygen by ANALYZING each of 3 completed graphs, then WRITING “If A causes B . . . and B causes C . . . Then A leads to C . . .” types of statements

WATER’S DISSOLVED OXYGEN VERBAL TEST: PERCENT SATURATION, FACTORS and INDICATORS

Students will:

1) Answer a 100-question Test featuring 97 multiple-choice and 3 fill-in-the-blank questions about Oxygen Percent Saturation, Factors or Effectors and Indicators [see Lesson WQ 21 for a list of these Factors & Indicators]

2) Practice – with REPETITION – their skills of logic and reasoning

3) Be trained to understand the relationships between the Dependent and Independent variable – and the difference between Direct (or immediate) and Indirect (or ultimate) relationships, causes and connections

WATER’S DISSOLVED OXYGEN GRAPHICAL TEST: FACTORS and INDICATORS

Students will:

1) Answer a Test featuring 100 multiple-choice questions.

For each question, Students must be able to interpret the meaning of and pick from a choice of 2 graphed relationships

All the graphs or relationships feature the Independent or influencing leader/Action variable on the x-axis, and the Dependent or disciple/reaction variable on the Y-axis – with higher levels or amounts at the outer ends

These relationships can be either Direct (a.k.a. Immediate) or Indirect (a.k.a. Ultimate) – and can represent either a tight or a loose/approximate connection

These graphs are intended only to depict a generic Positive (slanted upwards) or generic Negative (slanted downwards) relationship between two variables - NOT necessarily a mathematically linear relationship

[see Lesson WQ 22 for a list of these Factors & Indicators]

Note: There are NO question-marks; it’s a choice of statements, as expressed in a Graphed relationship. A few relationships appear more than once, when necessary, in order to tell the “full story” or explanation behind each factor to the student. For example, Turbidity’s depressive effect on Dissolved Oxygen culminates through 4 unique routes: A) The Lower Water Concentration or Less “room” effect; B) The Higher Temperature effect; C) The Less Benthic Photosynthesis route; and D) The More Aerobic Decomposer Bacteria route.
