Department of Agriculture USDA grades; estimation of wildlife populations and pulpwood yields; and calculation of mapping data inherent to systems of agriculture or agribusiness. Learning about the Heart. How likely are you to recommend Education. Through the analysis of artistic floral styles and historical periods, students will develop respect for the traditions and contributions of diverse cultures.


At this stage, a Level 5 pupil who was a programmed teacher during the first semester, now assists the Level 3 pupils in doing peer-group learning.

As in Levels 4 to 6, each member in the transition learning group has a copy of the peer-group learning module they are studying. For Levels 4 to 6, the peer-group learning modules are used as their main learning materials, with every member of the group having a copy of the module. The peer-group leader leads in the discussion of the lessons in the peer-group learning modules.

As enhancement to the learning modules, audio and video clips from the ELSA project have been included as part of the learning materials. These audio and video clips run for two to three minutes as supplement to the learning content in the learning modules. These are usually shown during Resource Teaching period in which the Resource Teacher in Science, English, and Math, upon proper determination, uses these materials to enhance the contents or lessons in the peer-group learning modules.

In this session, the Resource Teacher also conducts the lesson with emphasis on developing in the learners higher order thinking skills.

The results of the first post test taken should be recorded and used for computing grades. However, if learners fail the set criterion, a 25 re-take of the test will be done after a review of lessons. The scores will not be recorded but used as indicator if the learner is ready to move to the next learning module.

There are already prepared post tests for most of the peer-group learning modules which the Testing Teachers can use. However, it is also encouraged that Testing Teachers prepare new sets of test items for each of the learning modules until the school has its own item bank from which to draw test items to be used in the posttests for each of the modules. Testing teachers can undertake item analysis process to have a pool of good test items.

Bones provide the basic shape and structure for the body. The bones are like the beams inside of a building, and all of our organs, muscles and skin are organized around the bones, just like the walls of a building. The skeleton protects organs in the body. Bones can cover and protect many of out major organs. They are like an armor that protects our insides.

Can anyone think of any examples? Inside of the long bones in our bodies we will talk more about the different types of bones later on , there is a cavity that is filled with a substance called Bone Marrow. In this tissue, new blood cells are produced, and damaged blood cells are repaired.

We are going to talk more about bone marrow in the next lesson. The bones are the levers that help the body move in different directions and in different ways. Here is a question for you all: Do bones move by themselves when we walk, talk or move around? Or are they controlled by something else? What makes them move? Muscles move bones by contracting, which pulls the bone, causing us to move around. Can someone describe what a mineral is to the class?

It is a substance that the body needs to carry out all of our bodily functions like thinking, breathing and moving around. One of the minerals that the body needs is calcium. Calcium is a major part of bone, and this is where the body stores its calcium. Can someone tell me why this could be bad? The less calcium the bone has, the weaker it will become. This will allow students to get a preview of the lesson, and give them hints as to what they should come away from the lesson with.

Students will fill in the outline that is distributed in the beginning of the lesson. This will be their notes for the lesson, and it will also help them to practice note-taking skills. At the end of the lesson, students will complete the questionnaire while working quietly together.
