(TN: Whatever each group of learners selected, the group shall be asked to challenge or explore the validity of these prior knowledge or tentative ideas during the Firm Up Stage); 9. be oriented that they need to show their understanding of plate tectonics though decision making. 10. conducting in groups a teacher-guided data gathering; 11. be informed that this decision making shall be based on the following criteria: (a) informed, and (b) actions learners need to take to manage the effects of natural phenomena (such as those of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and tsunamis) associated with plate tectonics. (TN: Brainstorming may be used to discuss how these criteria shall be used. Learners need to be clarified on the details on how their product or performance shall be assessed. Such details of criteria may be revised based on agreements reached);FIRM-UPVaried learning experiences shall be introduced to help learners disprove misconceptions, examine/ assess prior knowledge andbegin to discover the validity of tentative ideas (TI) to the EQ; make their understanding of plate tectonics real; equip them withskills and knowledge for them to be successful throughout the topic; and undergo differentiated instruction to address theirunique strengths and needs. This involves acquiring scientific knowledge which is about accessing information, i.e., whatinformation is needed, where information can be located and how information can be gathered focusing on plate tectonics. 5

(TN: The teacher may ask each group of learners to discuss those prior knowledge, misconceptions and/or TI which the group previously chose for investigation. This group shall be asked to reason out for either assessing, confirming or rejecting these respectively in the light of the activities conducted and analyses made.)Mountain FormationUsing the chosen prior knowledge, misconceptions and/or tentative ideas (TI) to the EQ as starting/focal points of investigation,learners shall: 25. analyze how folding of rocks and movement along faults can form mountains; and 26. revisit prior knowledge, misconceptions and/or TI on mountain formation, if any. (TN: The teacher may ask each group of learners to discuss those prior knowledge, misconceptions and/or TI which the group previously chose for investigation. This group shall be asked to reason out for either assessing, confirming or rejecting these respectively in the light of the activities conducted and analyses made.)VolcanoesUsing the chosen prior knowledge, misconceptions and/or tentative ideas (TI) to the EQ as starting/focal points of investigation, 7

(TN: The teacher may ask each group of learners to discuss those prior knowledge, misconceptions and/or TI which the group previously chose for investigation. This group shall be asked to reason out for either assessing, confirming or rejecting these respectively in the light of the activities conducted and analyses made).DEEPEN Here, learners shall be engaged in understanding scientific knowledge which includes the processing and making meanings out of the information. Learners need to reflect, revisit, revise and rethink their ideas; express their understandings and engage in meaningful self-evaluation; and undergo in-depth discussion/ analysis of plate tectonics using multiple sources of information and various modalities of manifesting learning.Given enough time, learners shall: 33. work in groups to show how concepts on force, motion, energy and matter are involved in plate tectonics (TN: This may be done through model construction, simulation, etc); 34. organize a field trip to the nearest PAGASA ( Philvocs) and learn more about volcanoes and earthquakes; 8
  9. 9. 2010 Secondary Education Curriculum Integrated Science 35. conduct an interview with experts (volcanologist, seismologist, etc.) to understand further those concepts in plate tectonics found to be difficult ; 36. make a background investigation (through literature search, interview or survey) on how safe one’s immediate community from the occurrences of earthquake, tsunami and/or volcanic eruption; and 37. make account of their self-interest in future career and occupation/profession by attending career orientation in the school or career counseling;At the level of understanding, learners shall: 38. describe how plate tectonics cause earthquakes, tsunami, mountain formation and volcanic eruptions (FU: Explanation); 39. analyze government efforts (international, national and local) in reducing damages of earthquakes, tsunami and volcanic eruptions based on cost effectiveness (FU: Perspective); 40. imagine what other people feel and how they adjust while living in areas frequented/ visited by earthquake(s), tsunami(s), and/or volcanic eruption (FU: Empathy); and 41. self-assess how the understanding of reducing damages of earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption shape/influence one’s beliefs and values on volunteerism (FU: Self-knowledge).To draw out the Essential Understanding, learners shall: 42. contemplate on the Essential Question; -What does understanding of plate tectonics tell us? 43. reexamine their revised tentative idea (TI); and 44. justify the TI based on the understanding (s) gained. 9
  10. 10. 2010 Secondary Education Curriculum Integrated ScienceTRANSFER ++ There is a need to encourage learners to organize their learning experiences so that they can move from teacher-guided and concrete activities to independent applications where they may create or produce new knowledge in science. This is to challenge learners to transfer their learning in new settings and use this creatively to generate new ideas or view things differently. Learners shall be involved in planning which manifest informed decision making relevant to reducing effects of some plate tectonics-related events.Learners shall: 45. prepare a tangible output (eg. Decision Matrix, Action Plan, Advocacy Material, Flow Chart, Earthquake drill, etc) showing informed decisions made on actions learners need to take to manage the effects of natural phenomena or events (such as those of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and tsunamis) associated with plate tectonics; and 46. evaluate their product/performance.
