I chose the standard MS-LS1-2:Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.
SEP: The thing I liked about the video is it talked about the progression between a drawn model to representing the information in middle school. I taught this unit this year and notice that students that were able to take their model and place information on it had a overall better understanding.
DCI: Once again I liked the video and how it broke down this standard from the elementary perspective to the middle school perspective (I teacher 5th and 6th grade). I like it because of the relationship between what is observable at the elementary level to the middle school level that is only partially observable under a microscope.
CC-1A: Watching this video made me feel better about how I reevaluated students and their understanding of the cell parts and functions. Much like anything we can make analogies or connections to other things and the cell parts and functions are no different.
