4. S.P.A.C.E Demo: Force and Motion

Writing Across Contents: Concepts and Research
Writing in Content Areas:
A Multimodal Integration for Communication
Textual Communication in Math and Science

Math TEKS Process Standards
(D) Communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate

(E) Create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate math ideas

(F) Display, explain, and justify mathematical ideas and arguments using precise mathematical language in written or oral communications
Science TEKS and the Next Generation Standards
Students construct explanations and design solutions...supported by multiple sources of evidence that are consistent with scientific ideas, principles, and theories.
Students Communicate Scientific Ideas by:

As teachers of new generation students we must...

Encourage students to share their thinking and learn from the thinking of others

provide opportunities to share these ideas in multiple ways: listening, dialogue, drawing, hands-on tools, and

(Gojak, 2011)
Approach to Learning

Students create meaning through the use of textual, digital, audio, and visual elements.
Students can utilize Writing in Math and Science to:

Analyze information
Formulate plans
Co-constuct meaning
Reflect and evaluate thinking
Justify ideas
Explain ideas to others
Student Samples
So...Why Use Student Notebooks?

1. They Are Thinking Tools:
guides students in constructing their own conceptual understanding

2. They Develop Expository Writing and Purposes of Writing:
(Descriptive, Procedural, Narrative, Explanatory, Persuasive, Labeling)

3. They Enhance Literary Skills:
Combining Writing and Visual Text, building blocks for more formal writing, academic language, provide numerous ways for students to enhance communication skills (written, visual, oral, MULTIMODAL)

4. They Support Differentiated Learning:
visuals, graphics, tables, sticky notes, ELL’s draw and write in primary language (notebook is for the STUDENT to make sense of his/her own learning) They provide a structure and support for all students to achieve

5. They Help Foster teacher collaboration:
Trial and Error, PD, and individual research to share

Multimodal Communication
13 years as a middle/high school science teacher for JISD

2nd year doctoral student for UTSA - focus on impact of STAAR exam and achievement gap between boys and girls in science.

Currently teaching 2 sections of STEM and Humanities to preservice teachers at UTSA.

Published author for NSTA Science Scope.

Will graduate with Ph. D. in May 2016.

PS2.A: Forces and Motion
All positions of objects and the directions of forces and motions must be described in an arbitrarily chosen reference frame and arbitrarily chosen
units of size. In order to share information with other people, these choices must also be shared.(MS-PS2-2)

Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions
Constructing explanations and designing solutions in 6–8 builds on K–5 experiences and progresses to include constructing explanations and
designing solutions supported by multiple sources of evidence consistent with scientific ideas, principles, and theories.
Apply scientific ideas or principles to design an object, tool, process or system. (MS-PS2-1)

Connections to Nature of Science
Science Models, Laws, Mechanisms, and Theories Explain Natural Phenomena
Theories and laws provide explanations in science. (HS-PS2-1),(HS-PS2-4)
Laws are statements or descriptions of the relationships among observable phenomena. (HS-PS2-1),(HS-PS2-4)

Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
(6) Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that there is a relationship between force, motion, and energy. The student is expected to:
(C) investigate and describe applications of Newton's law of inertia, law of force and acceleration, and law of action-reaction such as in vehicle restraints, sports activities, amusement park rides, Earth's tectonic activities, and rocket launches.

Next Generation Science Standards
Jennifer Background
Starting with Kindergarten, all student are
supposed to utilize a notebook/journal in their class.

EX: 8th grade -
4) Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student knows how to use a variety of tools and safety equipment to conduct science inquiry. The student is expected to:

(A) use appropriate tools to collect, record, and analyze information, including lab journals/notebooks, beakers, meter sticks, graduated cylinders, anemometers, psychrometers, hot plates, test tubes, spring scales, balances, microscopes, thermometers, calculators, computers, spectroscopes, timing devices, and other equipment as needed to teach the curriculum

Using Foldables to Support Textual Communication
Outside: Draw a Diagram of your Design

Inside: Explain what happened. Justify your explanation with Newton's laws of motion.
Using Foldables to Support Textual Communication

Draw the Design and Make a Prediction

What happened? How does it relate to the penny experiment? (use Newton's laws of motion to explain and justify your ideas).
S.P.A.C.E. Tips and Assesment
Focus on only one or two SPACE components

Establish a rubric/grading format from the beginning

Quick Scanning Suggestions

Integrate a variety of expository text types

Experiment with different multimodal approaches to scaffold writing and assessment: videos, images, hands-on tools, demos, etc.
