was engaging and something that they had previous experience. Many of these students have previously learned about the life cycle stages of the butterfly which are very similar to that of the moth. Therefore this unit really built on schema that they already had. However, one goal that was slightly least successful was, learn vocabulary: (butterfly) metamorphosis, egg, larva, pupa, chrysalis, cocoon (moth), and, adult. The two students that missed this question most likely missed it because they confused the pupa and larva stage mixed up. Another plausible reason for this mistake possibly because they used the caterpillar instead of in conjunction with larva or chrysalis and cocoon instead of in conjunction with pupa thus not fully committing the vocabulary to memory (assimilation). If I retaught this unit the, one modification that I could make would be to be sure when giving feedback that any vocabulary misconception that the students are still showing at the end of the unit is cleared up. I could perhaps play “Vocabulary Jeopardy”, which is played like the television game show Jeopardy. Games such as this allow the students to review key ideas in an engaging way. Based pm the summative assessment of the Butterfly and Moth unit I will move on to the next content area. The students’ assessment scores show that they have successfully met the unit goals and objectives. Looking at the above chart help me to see that all of the students grew in knowledge from the beginning to the end of the unit. Because the median grade on the summative was 98% and the most of the objectives’ criterion scores were set at 80% I can surmise that it’s okay to move on to the next content area.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
