Cause and Effect lesson from my PDAS.
PDAS- Texas Professional Development and Appraisal System; this our annual formal observation.
I have always disliked teaching Cause and Effect. I understood the concept but I had a difficult time explaining it. I did a lot of research and made sure I understood it fully before attempting to do it for my PDAS. So now I have mastered it, Bloom was right, I needed to synthesis Cause and Effect to really understand it to teach it.
I began with my Powerpoint,
I did a brief turn and talk as my focus and connect them with the day before's lesson. Then my main HOOK/Focus was this video from Ok Go- This Too Shall Pass. (Last year, I used this video for Science in for our Forces of Motion Lesson) ***I love this group!!***
Ok, I apologize for my new-ness in blogging. I can't figure out how to put my powerpoint (PPT) on the post. If you are an interested follower, leave me a message at the bottom with your email address and I will send it. This interactive PPT has moving graphics and has lots of teacher talking points.
