Radar presentation 2013

  1. 1. RADAR science reading strategy • Read • Annotate • Decode • Answer • Review
  2. 2. READ • Start by skimming the passage • Read the questions and directions – AVID strategy: number the paragraphs
  3. 3. ANNOTATE • While reading, annotate the passage – BOX the command terms in the questions – Circle the key vocabulary – Underline the claims and evidence in the passage
  4. 4. Command Terms • These are the terms in the question that describe what you should do – 95% of all AP Biology command terms include: • Justify • Predict • Explain • Discuss • Identify • Calculate • evaluate – Science questions will always ask you to use EVIDENCE in the reading passage
  5. 5. Vocabulary • Circle vocabulary terms that are essential for answering the question, or key to your content • Key terms are include terms that are repeated, defined, or used in class • Words that you should also pay attention to should be starred/squiggled – EXCEPT for – Including – NONE – Any numbers
  6. 6. Underlining Claims and Evidence • Claims – The cause is…. – The results of the experiment are… – The data indicates…. – Explanation • Evidence – Quantitative data (numbers) – Qualitative data – Trends on graphs – Support for the claim
  7. 7. Decode • Make sense of your annotations – Define terms you don’t know – Identify variables and controls – Chart the claims with a “C” in the left column – Chart the evidence with an “E” in the right column
  8. 8. Answer • Re-read the question • Use your annotation and decoding to help you answer the question!
  9. 9. Read about type O, paragraph 5 FIRST is important here, inference means I have to put two pieces of evidence together
  10. 10. Read about type O, paragraph 5 FIRST is important here, inference means I have to put two pieces of evidence together
  11. 11. Review • Re-read the question • Review your answer – Is it reasonable? (if a calculation) – Did you answer the question that was asked using the command term? – Can you find the evidence in the passage to support your answer? Draw a line if you can make a connection!
  12. 12. Yes, this makes sense! It is directly from paragraph 5 The first paragraph mentions the turn of the century, and the 4th paragraph mentions the failure of transfusions. This gives us the idea that blood transfusions were being performed before 1900!
  13. 13. RADAR science reading strategy • Read • Annotate • Decode • Answer • Review
  14. 14. Raptor-riffic!
