Assignment No 2 Solution and Idea 

Don't Copy paste 

Teaching of General Science

Assignment No 2

GSC 201

Q1. What are the characteristics of solids and liquids that students of grade 2 should know?

Students should know about the features of liquids and solids. They should know about the difference between them. Solids have distinct shape and volume. They can be hard or soft but they have a specific shape. On the other hand liquids take the shape in which container they are poured. It means that liquids have no distinct shape. Solids do not change their shape while they are pressed.  While liquids when poured to an oval shaped container take the oval shape and when poured in a square shape container take that shape.

Q2. What is the difference between Formative and Summative assessment. Give one example.

Formative assessment: the goal of formative assessment is to monitor student learning to provide ongoing feedback that can be used by instructor to improve their teaching and by students to improve their learning. More specifically, formative assessment:

  • Help students to identify their strengths and weaknesses and target areas that need work.
  • Help faculty recognize where students are struggling and address problems immediately.

Formative assessments are generally low stakes, which means they have low or no point value. For example,

  • Draw a concept map in the class to represent their understanding of a topic.
  • Submit one or two sentences identifying the main topic of a lecture.

Summative Assessment: the goal of summative assessment is to evaluate students learning at the end of an instructional unit by comparing it against some standard. Summative assessments are often high stakes, which mean that they have a high point value. Examples of summative assessment include:

  • A midterm exam
  • A final project
  • A paper
  • A senior recital

Information from summative assessment can be used formatively when students or faculty use it to guide their efforts and activities in subsequent courses.

Q3. Why are students engaged in class activities and experiments when teaching science?

Students want to explore the things around them. They want to know about the world they are living in.  That’s why when teaching science in a classroom the all students want to take part in activities from which they can learn.  They learn how world looks like and what it is in reality. They explore the things according to their knowledge .
