Sample Response

Describe the type of instructional interventions might you teach to improve student understanding in these areas.

Based on the student work, the teacher decided to have a classroom discussion to clarify which observations students should have made during the scientific activities and the proper way to record the observations in the data table. Then, he decided to use peer-to-peer teaching to have students help each other properly balance the chemical equations associated with each reaction. Finally, he selected a few students to read their conclusion statement and compare to their original hypothesis from their lab report as a model for other students.
