One difficult thing that I have found in homeschooling is assessing or grading my children's work. It's hard to decide what is typical of an age or grade when you only have a few students' work to compare. We don't give grades until middle school age, and then only in certain subjects.
In high school, obviously, all subjects get a grade. This has been when I really wish that I had an idea whether my teens work seems typical or whether I need to push them harder.
As you know, we have been doing our biology labs with a group of students at our co-op. It's usually a fun hour of wandering through a room full of teenagers and lots of microscopes. I love all the science-y fun I get to observe.
But I digress… As I am wandering the room taking pictures or video and answering questions, I have had an opportunity to see all the students' lab notebooks. I'm still not certain that my teens' work is typical, but I wanted to share a bit of their lab notebooks with you.
If nothing else, I think it helps us all figure out that there really isn't a "normal.
This is how they looked when my teens first finished the experiment. They were all sent back to finish, fix, or polish. We are using Apologia Biology. Colleen has arthritis, and it affects her writing hand. I wanted to use these printable pages to lessen the amount of writing for her.
We are using the journal pages rather than the lapbook pages. The student questions and study guides have the question printed out, and the student just needs to fill in the definition or answer.
The thing I love the most is the partial filled out pages for the labs! The supplies and procedure are printed for you. This leaves a minimal amount of writing for Colleen, which means her hand doesn't ache and she can fill out the rest of the lab neatly and in one sitting. We are also using Knowledge Box's Flash Cards.
We typically hate flash cards, but with all the definitions to learn these have been a life saver! Sean is my youngest student in biology.
He's in 9th grade. He hates to write by hand, but loves science. He is excelling at biology so far! Colleen is somewhere between 11th and 12th grade. She does not normally enjoy science. She is really finding biology interesting, but it does not come naturally to her.
It's a lot of work, but she's rising to the challenge. Judah is on the brink of finishing all his high school course work. Biology is one of his last courses.IB Chemistry: Lab Report Format Writing good lab reports is very important in IB as they make out a big part of your final grades in the science subjects.
