Introduction
Take on the role of student as we
complete the photosynthesis lab and
summarize our findings
Complete a peer review of our findings
Resume our roles as teachers and delve
into the science practices and how they
relate to AP Biology curriculum and
framework
Become familiar with the other labs and
how they relate to the science practices

Let’s consider the roles of
teachers and students in AP
Biology

What are the characteristics of
effective teaching and learning in
an AP Biology class?
 What
are the teachers doing?
 What
are the students doing?
Investigation 5
Photosynthesis
 What
factors affect the rate of
photosynthesis?
 Go
to mw.concord.org/modeler
 Scroll
 Read
down to harvest light
and answer question on
pages 1 and 2
What is light? What did you learn
about the relationship between
light and green leaves?
Choosing a Variable
Environmental Organismal
Light Intensity Leaf color
Light Color
Leaf size
Procedural
Disc size
Depth of

Reporting Your Findings

Graph your data

What are your trends, changes or
differences?

What do those trend/changes/differences
mean?

Write a caption under your graph. Link
the trends/changes/differences to what
they mean.
Peer Review

Read the other posters and consider what
they are reporting.

Read and consider the work.

Write a post-it note beginning with “I
wonder……..” or “I noticed……..”
Reflection

As students, what did you do?

What other concepts in biology are
related to this?

What new information did you
reveal by doing your experiment?
Curriculum is……..
What do
we expect
students to
learn?
How will
we know
students
have
learned?
How will
students
learn?
Two Aspects of AP Biology
Curriculum
Class work
Connections
Lab work
The Investigations—one way
students learn

Science Practices and Investigations
 Levels
 FRQs
of Inquiry
Basic Tenets of Teaching

We can’t know where we’re going, until
we acknowledge where we’ve been

We need to connect ideas and provide a
framework where we hang our ideas and
concepts.

We have to talk about how we will get
there.
