At a middle school level, the Acids and Bases Worksheet is typically utilized by teachers to help students understand about relationships between energy and mass, specifically in their own bodies. If you’ve seen this worksheet before, you might notice that some of the information that is presented on it doesn’t seem to be really appropriate for the overall context of the lesson.
The reason for this is that this worksheet isn’t written for a high school level of education, but for an eighth-grade level of reading. This has nothing to do with its usefulness, but everything to do with the way it’s presented to students. In the course of my years as a teacher, I have often noticed that certain students (sometimes even more than others) just do not learn the way we would like them to.
There are numerous reasons why this might happen in a sixth or seventh grade teaching situation but the most common one is probably that the subject matter being taught in high school is too simple for the student to understand. As long as the information that is being taught is presented in a certain order, it becomes more accessible to the student. Here are three things to keep in mind when you write your Acids and Bases Worksheet.
– First, if you are writing a worksheet for a high school level of reading, your student must read much slower than he or she will likely be used to. Too many children have been raised under the belief that a worksheet can be handed out at the end of each lesson or that they need to finish the work ahead of time. Those notions are simply wrong and can have dire consequences for your child’s development. Your student will need all the help he or she can get in understanding how and why things work, and a worksheet that demands immediate responses may not help.
– Second, use a base table as opposed to a traditional worksheet. Students must grasp a base table very quickly so that they can understand how the composition of the composition relates to mass and energy. This will help them work out different expressions for the mass and energy. Instead of giving them a table of various values for each formula, just give them the formula itself.
– Third, instead of a traditional worksheet, you might consider using a base table. The reason for this is that it is easier for the student to understand and it is also very inexpensive. In addition, there is no set up fees associated with base tables, so they’re really a very low cost alternative for your student’s classroom learning.
– Fourth, when you create a base table, make sure that it has a complete table of contents. You should also put a heading at the top of the table that summarizes the purpose of the lesson in question. This way, your student has a better understanding of what he or she is learning.
Just remember that the Acids and Bases Worksheet is not meant to be a means of hiding the content behind a mass of formulas and other fancy words. It is supposed to get your student to start thinking in a different way. Make sure that you keep these basic tips in mind when you write your student’s worksheet.
