M: Biology - Today we had to take a step back. The test was ugly! Now, there's only a couple of reasons that you did poorly on this test (If you did do poorly). But more that dwelling on that, it's more important that you got your act together today. Hopefully it's much better than what you turned in on Friday. Actually I will dwell on your study habits for a bit! ...are you actually doing the work? Only about half of you do your homework. You had the ability to ask me to clarify everything, but most of you chose not to ask anything. Please ask yourself what you could do better. Tomorrow you will be taking a make up quiz in class tomorrow. In addition, Tonight I want you to update your Table of Contents. The mid-term is coming soon.
Medical Biology - Today we started the last subject before we get to the mid-term, diet. I need you to update your table of contents. Oh, and make sure you have returned your completed medical pathways agreement. Actually, if you didn't finish your food rankings from today, please complete that. You can find copies of the foods below and you should have ranked them 1-10 with your reasoning.
T: Biology - So today we got past the osmosis issue, but we now need to move on to the kids of molecules and elements we find in our food and our diets. In class you should have started to classify the 10 foods that you were given. These ten food labels can be found below if you didn't finish. You should have them ranked from 1 (best) to 10 (worst), but more importantly you should have reasons behind why you ranked them the way you did.
Medical Biology - Today we continued to look at our diets. You got together with others to compare your rankings, and learned how to read a food label. Now that you understand the basics I want you to complete questions #1-10 that can be found on the document I've posted below. Just write your full responses on the left side of the entry we started today. There are actually four pages to this document. The first two are the reference sheets I printed up for you. Questions 1-10 can be found on page 3, and just IGNORE page 4.
W: Biology - Today you learned the importance of being able to read a label. Tonight, if you didn't finish it in class, will be looking at questions 1-10 that can be found on the document I posted below. These will go on the left hand side of your "Macromolecules in Food" notes.
Medical Biology - Today you started by reranking the foods we examined on Monday and then reflected on three considerations we should have in picking healthy foods. Then you learned about our next research project that involves you finding healthy foods for carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, sulfur, nitrogen, magnesium, and potassium. You should be finding at least 5 sources for each and then find out sources of good and bad protein, fats, and carbs. All of this research goes on "You Are What You Eat" Notes.
Th: Biology - Well, it was a short day today. We basically wrapped up reading food labels and started our research projects. This project will be done with your group and should cover: proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, N, P, S, Mg, and K. Be sure that you list the websites that you found your information from. Oh yeah, you were suppose to find foods (5 minimum)that were rich sources in these materials.
Medical Biology - Today you had an opportunity to learn a little bit about those sources of healthy that are related to foods: probiotics and prebiotics. Here's the video we watched on our inner microbes: http://www.ted.com/talks/jonathan_eisen_meet_your_microbes .Continue tonight to research your best foods to include these new factors.
F: Biology - So today you had a chance to learn the last things I needed you to know about foods, pre and probiotics. The movie we watched is found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjPvSpKh5oI in case you want to watch it again. Remember that the end goal of all of this is a powerpoint presentation that you will share with us next week. That means that your homework is to compile the vital information on the shared Google Slides document that your group created. the slides should be organized by each of the major important elements/macromolecules (CHNOPS, Mg, K, etc. and Lipids/carbs/Proteins) and eventually tell us what a really solid meal looks like. If you are going to score the max score on this project though, you need to cite your sources and contain more than what I asked for. Adding Ca, other elements, or the role of exercise in digestion, etc. might be a good way to go.
Medical Biology - Today you had the entire time to work. Your research should be down on the Google Slides and you should know what extras you are going to add to your presentation. You know you have to do CHNOPS, Mg, and K, but also proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates, but don't forget pre and probiotic foods. You will eventually present to us a perfect daily meal (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner). Yes, it should be appetizing too! Coordinate with your group on what should get done.
Okay, I think the final rubric is like this:
To score a 3 you must: Design the "Best" breakfast, lunch, and dinner to fulfill a person's needs. Yes, you can also include up to two snacks. You must also describe how this meal does a great job of meeting those needs. You must also include citations in APA format with each of your claims.
To score a 4 you must first be like a 3, but demonstrate a deep understanding, or have exceptional presentation (easy to navigate and understand).
To score a 5 you must first be a 4, but also expand on the original ideas by showing how it is economical, or included other essential nutrients, advises on supplements, or something that you (and I) think takes this project beyond.
This page contains nearly everything that you need if you missed class.
