F. J. Reitz HS Periodic Table UDL Lesson Plan
         Message to the Reader / Teacher
I am Chris Gibson, former science teacher at F. J. Reitz High School in Evansville, Indiana (in fall 2007 I
became the school counselor at Dexter Elementary School in Evansville). I taught science for eight
years—I taught Integrated Chemistry/Physics for seven years and Anatomy and Physiology for four
years. I have also taught Biology, Chemistry, Advanced Biology, and Physical Science. My biggest
theme interwoven through all science classes was “How Does This Relate to Real-Life?” I am new to
UDL, but often use Power Point via an LCD projector.

As a result of the Physics First movement I gained exposure to at the 2003 Hoosier Association of
Science Teachers, Incorporated (HASTI) convention, I decided to begin teaching physics concepts
during first semester and chemistry concepts second semester. In the Fall of 2005, the EVSC adopted
curriculum and textbooks to reflect teaching physics first semester and chemistry second semester.
Therefore, I would teach periodic table information early in February. I would also teach this portion of
content before I discuss atoms, since I feel students have a better grasp and background with periodic
table elements than atoms.

My goal was always for students to gain a working knowledge of elements that they see in everyday life
(hydrogen, iron, oxygen, carbon, aluminum, etc.), and how these elements interact with other elements
to comprise everything around us.

                     I co-taught with Brett Cobb, Special Education Teacher at Reitz.
                                                                                              Mrs. Brett Cobb
  Mr. Chris Gibson

Feel free to contact me with any questions you have: or (812) 476-1321. You
may also contact me at Dexter Elementary School, 917 S. Dexter Av., Evansville, IN 47714.

               Standards and Benchmarks
What standards will be met by teaching this unit?
Indiana State Standards for Integrated Chemistry/Physics:
CP.1.10   Understand that the Periodic Table is a listing of elements arranged by
          increasing atomic number, and use it to predict whether a selected atom would
          gain, lose, or share electrons as it interacts with other selected atoms.
CP.1.11   Understand and give examples to show that an enormous variety of biological,
          chemical, and physical phenomena can be explained by changes in the
          arrangement and motion of atoms and molecules.
National Science Standards:
Chapter 4, Section D: Structure of Matter (see reference below)

In addition, this unit plan touches other disciplines; standards for those classes are listed
A1.9.6    Distinguish between inductive and deductive reasoning, identifying and
          providing examples of each.
9.2.1     Analyze the structure and format of reference or functional workplace
          documents, including the graphics and headers, and explain how authors use
          the features to achieve their purposes.
9.2.4     Synthesize the content from several sources or works by a single author dealing
          with a single issue; paraphrase the ideas and connect them to other sources and
          related topics to demonstrate comprehension.
9.5.3     Write expository compositions, including analytical essays, summaries,
          descriptive pieces, or literary analyses.

                                                                     What should students know?

Some students will know
- What the periodic table is, what it represents, and be able to identify all of the elements
on the periodic table.
- How to analyze and use the information on the periodic table for each element to
determine how elements interact with each other and nature.
- Understand which elements occur naturally and which elements are manufactured
artificially in the laboratory.
- How to access information online to identify the use of elements in familiar and complex
compounds (starch, proteins, copper rusting, etc).

Most students will know
- What the periodic table is, what it represents, and be able to identify (not memorize) all
of the elements on the periodic table.
- Elements of certain families react only with elements of certain other families.
- How to identify which elements make up familiar compounds (sugar, water, steel).
- How to use the Internet to discover common elements in natural surroundings.

All students will know
- What the periodic table is, how to read the periodic table (identify atomic number, atomic
mass, symbol, name), and the significance of major elements.
- Elements are around us everywhere, and some combination of elements make up
everything around us.
- Elements are the building blocks for all matter.
- Elements are arranged in a pattern (families) on the periodic table.

                             Teacher Library
What materials and resources will be useful for teachers?
 This site provides a wealth of facts
 about periodic table with “clickable”
 table that has individual links for
 each element. Use of a Smartboard
 is perfect for this site, as you can
 show the periodic table while
 sharing facts and showing
 placement of elements on the table.
 This Dynamic periodic table is also
 “clickable” and is color-coded very
 nicely to show families of elements
 on the periodic table. This table
 also clearly delineates the
 metalloids along the “stairstep” on
 the periodic table. Finally, it allows
 teacher or student to print various
 versions of the periodic table.
  The Jefferson Lab site offers a
  “clickable” periodic table with
  hyperlinks for each element. It
  also provides resources for
  element math, element hangman,
  element flash cards, element
  crosswords and word scrambles,
  element matching, element
  concentration, and other
  reinforcement and enrichment.
  This site provides the favorite
  Element Song by Tom Lehrer—
  a must-hear for all chemistry
  and ICP students.

What materials and resources will be useful for assessing student knowledge
and skills?

  •    Use Bloom’s Taxonomy to assess the depth of student comprehension of
      material. Provide opportunities from the Tic-Tac-Toe activity that allow
      students to show proficiency on each of the levels of Bloom’s taxonomy.
      The pyramid of Bloom’s taxonomy should closely reflect the planning
      pyramid, as all students should strive for knowledge and understanding,
      most students will be able to apply and analyze, while some students will
      be able to reach to the top of the pyramid for synthesis and evaluation.

                                                 1.   Knowledge: arrange, define, duplicate, label, list,

  •    Ideally, student-generated rubrics would lend authenticity to the
      assessment procedure, as students may have a better guide and standard to
      which they should aspire if they generate the rubrics themselves—possibly
      even before they complete the activities in the Tic-Tac-Toe.

     Modifications: Planning for Academic Diversity
In all situations, possible solutions include: linking students with a partner or in
cooperative groups, scaffolding instruction via differentiation to facilitate more
one-on-one teaching for remediation, utilizing the Smartboard to model and
demonstrate concepts and/or processes, and using co-teaching strategies.
