Standards (47)   Alignment Evidence
SC.912.L.14.1: Describe the scientific theory of cells (cell theory) and relate the history of its discovery to the process of science. Where the standard (benchmark) is taught: e.g. semester(s), lesson number(s) and/or title(s): Semester 1, Unit 1, Lesson 3. Integrate reading/writing standards (LACC.WHST.1.2; LACC.WHST.3.9; LACC.RST.3.7; LACC.RST.4.5; LACC.RST.4.10; etc.).
How the standard (benchmark) is taught: e.g. through lab work, discussion and research, direct instruction: Only one example needs to be included though several are shown here
Activate prior knowledge and have students independently reflect on the following questions: What is a cell? What is the cell theory?
  • Lab work - use microscopes to observe and compare/contrast characteristics various cells, and record observations in science journal. Classify cells into two groups, three groups, etc.
  • Direct instruction to review key vocabulary and prefixes/suffixes. Research the history of cells and cell theory - draw a timeline (Hooke, van Leeuwenhoek, Schleiden, Schwann, Virchow, Margulis, etc.) and discuss key discoveries and their impact on society and science. Cite sources.
How mastery of the standard (benchmark) is assessed: e.g. pre and post test, performance task: Performance task: Write about the invention of the microscope and how it helped in the development of the cell theory.
SC.912.L.14.2: Relate structure to function for the components of plant and animal cells. Explain the role of cell membranes as a highly selective barrier (passive and active transport). Where the standard (benchmark) is taught: e.g. semester(s), lesson number(s) and/or title(s): Semester 1, Lesson8. Integrate reading/writing standards (LACC.WHST.1.2; LACC.WHST.3.9; LACC.RST.3.7; LACC.RST.4.5; LACC.RST.4.10; etc.).
How the standard (benchmark) is taught: e.g. through lab work, discussion and research, direct instruction:
Only one example needs to be included though several are shown here
  • In science journal, construct a chart for three-column notes on effects of osmosis on plant and animal cells.
  • Lab work: Using sandwich bags, iodine solution, starch, beakers, demonstrate how permeability in cells can be modeled? With lab partners, answer questions in science journal: what cell structure does the sandwich bag represent? Explain the process that occurred that caused the iodine to change from blue to black?
  • In science journal, analyze data from an experiment to predict which substances will diffuse across the lipid bilayer most quickly. Formulate a hypothesis abut the relationship between molecule size and rate of diffusion. Design and conduct an experiment to test the hypothesis.
How mastery of the standard (benchmark) is assessed: e.g. pre and post test, performance task: Performance task: Construct a Venn diagram to compare/contrast plant/animal cells (include characteristics and major cell structures and their function (including active/passive transport).
SC.912.L.16.3: Describe the basic process of DNA replication and how it relates to the transmission and conservation of the genetic information. Where the standard (benchmark) is taught: e.g. semester(s), lesson number(s) and/or title(s): Semester 1, Lesson 12. Integrate reading/writing standards (LACC.WHST.1.2; LACC.WHST.3.9; LACC.RST.3.7; LACC.RST.4.5; LACC.RST.4.10; etc.).
How the standard (benchmark) is taught: e.g. through lab work, discussion and research, direct instruction:
Only one example needs to be included though several are shown here
  • Use models to show the structure of DNA and how DNA codes are duplicated.
  • In science journal, design a timeline of the discovery and role of DNA. Cite sources.
  • Interpret graphics on DNA synthesis (radioactive labels versus time).
  • Through a written response, explain when and how DNA is synthesized/replicated during the cell cycle.
How mastery of the standard (benchmark) is assessed: e.g. pre and post test, performance task:
  • Create a Venn diagram that compares the process of DNA replication in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, including location, steps, end products.
  • Write to explain the process of DNA replication and incorporate the following vocabulary terms into the written response: chromatin, histone, replication, DNA polynerase, transformation, nucleotide.
