ALEX Lesson Plans  
   View Standards     Standard(s): [SC2015] CHEM (9-12) 4 :
4 ) Plan and conduct an investigation to classify properties of matter as intensive (e.g., density, viscosity, specific heat, melting point, boiling point) or extensive (e.g., mass, volume, heat) and demonstrate how intensive properties can be used to identify a compound.

[SC2015] CHEM (9-12) 9 :
9 ) Analyze and interpret data (e.g., melting point, boiling point, solubility, phase-change diagrams) to compare the strength of intermolecular forces and how these forces affect physical properties and changes.

[LIT2010] WRI (9-10) 7 :
7 ) Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.

[LIT2010] WRI (9-10) 8 :
8 ) Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the usefulness of each source in answering the research question; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.

[LIT2010] WRI (9-10) 9 :
9 ) Draw evidence from informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

Title: Comparing Intermolecular Forces
Description:

Students will be conducting a series of investigations in order to compare and contrast the various intermolecular forces that exist between compounds. First, students will rank 4 substances according to their melting points. Second, students will work together using the jigsaw research approach to understand the 4 types of intermolecular forces. And lastly, students will use the information gained to go back to their data collected and compare their original compounds and type of intermolecular bond they exhibit.

This lesson plan results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.

1 ) Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.

[LIT2010] WRI (6-8) 7 :
7 ) Conduct short research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question), drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions that allow for multiple avenues of exploration.

[LIT2010] WRI (6-8) 8 :
8 ) Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using search terms effectively; assess the credibility and accuracy of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data and conclusions of others while avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.

[LIT2010] HIS (9-10) 1 :
1 ) Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources, attending to such features as the date and origin of the information.

[LIT2010] WRI (9-10) 8 :
8 ) Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the usefulness of each source in answering the research question; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.

[LIT2010] WRI (11-12) 8 :
8 ) Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the strengths and limitations of each source in terms of the specific task, purpose, and audience; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and overreliance on any one source and following a standard format for citation.

Title: Cite Your Site
Description:

EasyBib is a free website that helps students create citations for research projects. Students typically struggle with citing sources, and this free website makes it very easy. If the students are typing a paper, it even allows them to copy and paste the citation directly into their paper.
