I will be gone for an entire week, but believe me when I say that you are capable of learning biology without me. You all have the tools for that job.

Your first day of Biology 12 class should be spent as follows:

  1. Watching this video to familiarize yourself with evidence for evolution;
  2. Finding this Google Sheet (below image) within Google Classroom to determine your line of evidence;
  3. Researching reputable scientific examples of your line of evidence to complete your row in the Google Sheet;
  4. Beginning to gather your ideas in support of making a video about your example as it relates to your line of evidence, and ultimately, to biological evolution; and,
  5. Tweeting out a Class Closure for Day 1 using CC1: #bioASFM to share your significant learning about this topic so far. If your character count allows, please tag me too via @lesliefarooq.

Your second day of Biology 12 class should be spent as follows:

  1. Finding this Google Document (below image) within Google Classroom to read the full instructions, associated rubrics, and to do all draft work. Draft work includes:
    1. Notes taken from sources;
    2. Any images you create to use in your video;
    3. A draft script for your video;
    4. An APA formatted bibliography that improves upon your previous attempts at this method of bibliographic formatting; and,
    5. Anything else that supports your product and maintains an aura of transparency over what you are doing while I am gone.
  2. Continuing to gather your ideas in support of making a video about your example as it relates to your line of evidence, and ultimately, to biological evolution; and,
  3. Tweeting out a Class Closure for Day 2 using CC2: #bioASFM to share your significant learning from this period of work. If your character count allows, please tag me too via @lesliefarooq.

Your third day of Biology 12 class should be spent as follows:

  1. Watching this video to provide additional context as to the importance of humanity’s understanding of the process of biological evolution;
  2. Finalizing your ideas in support of making a video about your example as it relates to your line of evidence, and ultimately, to biological evolution; and,
  3. Tweeting out a Class Closure for Day 3 using CC3: #bioASFM to share your significant learning from this period of work. If your character count allows, please tag me too via @lesliefarooq.

Week 7 Student Deliverables:

  1. A creative, informative video about examples that relate to your line of evolutionary evidence and that helps your viewers to understand how the information relates to biological evolution.
  2. An APA formatted bibliography which appears both in your draft work Google Document (for ease of grading) and in the description under your video on Youtube.
  3. Three Twitter class closure tweets that share your personal learning during class work, tweeted out at the end of each class or in the break or access period that immediately follows. Any later than that then it is not a class closure!
  4. One Twitter sharing tweet that provides a link to your Youtube video product and related hashtags, minimally: #bioASFM #biology #evolution, to gain a larger, authentic audience.
