  Learning objective Taxonomy Level/Category Learning activity Formative assessment Summative Assessment
a     Distinguish between peer-reviewed, and non-peer-reviewed literature, and review vs. primary research article. analyze I might bring some examples of different types and have them classify them for practice and then have them find 1 paper of each about a topic for research paper    
b      Use on-line resources such as PubMED to search for resources. Apply    
c     Recognize the general format of a scientific research article and identify the purpose of each section. comprehend  give out a paper for a topic; class discussion    
d  Identify the purpose (questions and hypotheses) and conclusions of research articles. comprehend  give out 3 papers for a topic; Individual: define terms unknown; Group work - present purpose based on abstract.    
e     Interpret figures within a scientific research article. analyze give out a paper for a topic; Group work; describe a figure   - your verb here says "describe" but your taxonomic level says analyze and your verb in the objective is interpret. try to align these  
f  Identify a topic of interest , specify a purpose and pose specific questions that are important to answer. (Background) apply Group work: identify components within a journal introduction - define terms unfamiliar Write an introduction  I would like to see what this assignment looks like. How will you scaffold it?  
g     Identify sub-topics to support overarching topic. Apply   write an outline  
h     Connect sub-topics to the topic of interest. synthesis (integrate) Group work: give out 3 papers and have students find the links  Write a paragraph  
i     Support each sub-topic by identifying and summarizing relevant conclusions and justify these conclusions from peer reviewed journals and provide transitional statements to link such evidence to each topic. analyze   Group work: give out 3 papers and have students find the links 8-10 page research paper
j  Provide sufficient depth of concepts (explain the molecular, cellular, physiological, or anatomical basis of biological function, responses or disease) comprehend    Write a paragraph; peer reviewed  
k Provide an in-text citation for each piece of evidence included in the paper (APA format) that is incorporated within the bibliography. Apply   Write a paragraph; peer reviewed  
l  Connect your sub-topics into a novel conclusion and link this to your introduction. Create   Group work: give out 3 papers and have students find the links and make conclusions  
m      Organize evidence to support subtopics. synthesis (integrate)   write an outline  
n Answers specific questions specified Apply   write an outline  
o    Explain connections between subtopics. synthesis (integrate)   Group work: give out 3 papers and have students find the links  
           
         
         

 

 

 

Learning objective Taxonomy Level/Category Learning activity Formative assessment Summative Assessment
      Describe the stages of the reproductive cycle Comprehend Create a graph on which you include your own basal termperature over a cycle, the expected relevant hormone levels cellular changes and purpose of each phase.    
      Integrate each phase of the reproductive cycle with physiological changes to include:      
a.       relative levels of hormone changes apply    
b.      anatomical /cellular changes in reproductive organs (ovary, uterus, glands) apply    
c.       Temperature change apply    
d.       purpose of each phase or physiological change related to reproductive success apply    
  Describe factors that prevent ovulation. apply Group work: Use a graph as created above to identify potential reasons for infertility   Exam question
  Identify genes that are necessary for ovulation and the functional product made from each gene and the purpose of the functional product. apply      
  Identify processes that regulate the expression of genes necessary for ovulation .   Comprehend      
       Describe anatomical and physiological changes required for fertilization. Comprehend      
    Describe anatomical and physiological changes required for implantation. Comprehend      
 Compare and contrast anatomical and physiological changes required for fertilization and implantation. analyze      
    Identify and describe social issues relevant to fertility. Comprehend      
Identify evidence for opposing sides of policy related to social issues and use this informed perspective to propose a recommendation. evaluate Debate: Each student is assigned a reading and a role for class discussion
