Reflections: Graphic Organizers

When you receive your graded Crib Sheets, here is some help in deciphering my shorthand:

=         GO –you did not include a graphic organizer. A group of words with a box around it, or lines (without words) connecting is NOT a graphic organizer.

=         CONX- you did not connect your concepts. Writing words with circles/boxes/shapes around them does not show how they are related to each other. Show how concepts are connected to each other

=         CONT-your picture is lacking content. I should be able to learn Biology from reading your graphic organizers

=         FILL- you are supposed to fill the page with Biology content, there should be no blank spaces waiting for you to fill

=         >3rc- Tables should have at least 3 rows and 3 columns to truly demonstrate relationships between contents/concepts.

=         L?- where are the labels for this diagram

=         C- where is the color for this chart/picture/diagram

=         ?- something is missing, or not easily understood

margin-left:1.0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;background:white'>-empty spacemargin-left:1.0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;background:white'> 

Please know that I do not accept late Crib Sheets; as the purpose of the Crib Sheet is to prepare for the test—and I do not accept late notebook checks; as your notebook should be with you and ready daily.

I hope this helps to clarify.

Happy Studying
