Hi guys, this is a video where we will go over how to complete a science article review, I know, some of you have completed these, and we will go over how to do this in class. But if you miss it, or you need reinforcements, this will be the video for you. So first off we're going to read a science magazine. Of course, there are online access to science world magazines as well. So there will be instructions for how to access the online magazines.
But this. This is a paper copy of the magazine. You'll.
Notice, this. Is the title of the magazine science world. This is the date of the magazine, and you require that information for the science article review. So if you take a look at the sheet that you'll be completing either digitally or on paper, first thing it says, is that articles you choose to read must be at least two pages long. So do not pick an article that's half the page or one page won't have enough information, and it'll be nearly impossible to get full credit. So magazine title again that science world.
The. Magazine date here is September 4, 2017. We haven't gotten to the article title yet, but we will and then the page number. So there are forming questions that you're answering. What is the main idea of the article?
What are the text features used in the article be specific? Tell me all the futures and describe them list? One fact that you learned in a text feature in this article, you do not need to use CER, and then what science skill or concept did you learn in this article? And you do need to CER that. With two to three pieces of evidence. So now stop the video and read pages 1 through 2, continue reading on pages, 3, &, 4. Alright.
So the first thing we need to do is write with the main idea of the article is one sentence. Answer just make a claim. So the main idea of hands-free ride that's, the title of the article is to inform the reader about driverless cars and how they may change our lives in the future. That's it.
There you go question. Number one, answer, ok. So that's, what's. The main idea all right. So then it talks about in question number two, what are the text features used in this article be specific?
Tell me all the features and describe them? So text features are any non-inline. So these are inline features that provide information captions, so captions like high-tech ride subtitles, I'm, sorry, captions are associated with pictures. Subtitles are in the reading, but break up different parts of the paragraph graphs. So here's a graph pictures and text boxes. So there are all kinds of text features.
In this article, you can see the title page picture, it's got all kinds of information on a picture with the caption subtitles, a diagram with information milestones, which is a timeline car with catch the pictures of cars with captions, an additional caption, so all kinds of text features. So what are the main text features used in this article be specific? Tell me all the features and describe them? So there are four pictures with captions a diagram subtitles. And a timeline question number two, Question, number three lists, one fact you learned in a text feature in this article. So you don't have to CER it. You do have to tell me something you aren't going to text feature, not in the inline.
But in the text features. So I said, the first driverless car was a van that when that went 12 miles at the speed at the speed of 55 miles per hour. So if you go back you'll see that that is in the milestone so that's, one text feature that you could have learned about. So then the final question is the. Question that people seem to have trouble with it's, what science skill.
It is not this question. It is not something you learned that's something you learn in a text feature. This is what science skill or concept. Did you learn about in this article? So what kind of science is this article talking about there are all kinds of choices. Problem-Solving, questioning prediction. Hypothesis experimentation, data analysis conclusions theories laws research technology, biography of a scientist or.
Informational now there may be more than one this one does have to you do have to you CER. And you do have to back that up with at least two pieces of evidence. So the e, you need to do three pieces of evidence. So let's, take a look at the different things that we could look at. So you can use one or more than one, but be sure it has a skill or concept that is used in the article.
So problem-solving, problem-solving is an article that talks about a problem like global warming, a medical problem, or any. Other type of issue scientists are trying to solve questioning. Does the article title ask a question is it a question scientists are trying to figure out about why people are getting sick that live in a certain area that would be an article about questioning, or why are the coral reefs dying?
Or why are the manatees dying? Those are the kinds of things that are questions. Prediction, hypothesis, that's, a little more difficult to describe, but the article might talk about predictions or hypothesis. That scientists are making and how they are going about trying to determine what kinds of hypotheses or prediction, they might come up with the next is experimentation. This article is going to tell you about an experiment that scientists did.
So it might tell you that they predicted something then they ran this experiment. It would really be like reading a lab procedure or a lab report data collection. If it's a data collection article it's going to have lots of numbers and information on tables. And.
Graphs analysis and conclusion think about what we do in class analysis and collusion will be a lot like what we do at the end of the lab it'll be an article explaining what scientists learned from doing an experiment theory and laws theories and laws will stay explicitly. That means that will very specifically say that this article is about a theory. For instance, the theory of evolution, or it will say something about Newton's laws of motion or the law of gravity. It will specifically say that so. If it does not say it's talking about or describing a theory or law, then it probably is not a theory or law. Then if it's a research article research articles will be about information.
Scientists are studying, you will not read any research and science world. So unless you're reading a magazine outside what we provide in class, this is going to be something that either your teacher would provide you, or we might, you might go out to the internet, looking Google Scholar, but you're, not going to find. This on your own so later in the year, if any of you want to read my New Scientist magazines, they contain articles on the latest scientific research. And those are certainly an option technology. Technology is just what it says, it's, an article talking about the latest technology. It could be artificial intelligence.
It could be robotics. Furthermore, it could be any number of things that have to do with engineers working on solving problems, creating technology to make life better a biography of a scientist and a. Biography of a scientist will be an article that tells about a scientist occasionally, there will be an article that specifically about a scientist, for instance, a few years back there was an art.
Jane Goodall, finger, doll is the scientist who works with gorillas, and it talks. And it talked a lot about how she came to do that. There might be some historical biography of a scientist like Gregor, Mendel or Newton or Darwin. And so those would be biographies of scientists. Now the final one this is sort. Of a cop-out, if you take this road, you better be able to argue to me that none of these others apply.
But if they're is it's just kind of informational talking its, not a skill, it really shouldn't ever be used. But if the article isn't about any skill, they haven't talked about a problem, questioning prediction, hypothesis, any of these things it might be informational. And if it's informational, then you, you definitely need to be able to provide a lot of evidence as to why you think that's, what is the. Choice is so once you've done that, once you've decided what skill for the art. The article uses you can write your see our answers for number four.
If you don't know how to feed your you'll need to go back and watch the CER video in this module. So what science skill do you think is used in this article again, just a reminder go way, literally, wait back here, just so you remember hands-free ride just to make it go a little quicker, we'll get to the end this way. So what kind of article wasn't? Hopefully. You pick technology.
So now you'll need to find two to three pieces of evidence to support your choice. So once you're done you're going to make your claim. So the science skill used in hands-free, rightist, technology, that's your claim. Okay.
Now, we're going to cite some evidence so on page nine, it says, the essential question is, how did technological innovations change the way we live our daily lives? Now you might be reading that and thinking, hmm, could that be questioning sure it could be? And you could. Argue that it answers this question, and that would be all right? You could also say that it's about technology, questioning so that's, one piece of evidence then also on page, nine, one of subtitles is high-tech right? So we know that the word Ten is there. So technology, that's proving our claim.
These are their evidence for a claim. So then we've given two pieces of evidence. And we want to if our reasoning. So I know, this article is about technology because the entire article pages 8 through.11 talks about cars driving themselves and how it will change the future of our lifetime in our lifetime. So again, the claim being it's about technology. We've given evidence about it, and then we're talking about something changing our lives, which we know our reasoning is technology is used to improve their life. So that is how you do that part of a science article review.
So again, as you look at this, you have four questions only one has to be CR. One has to be a complete sentence. Make sure you. Remember what text features are being careful with question number, four, if you have any questions, let me know and good luck with your science article review.
