ASSIGNMENT RESOURCES AND TIPS

Surf your Watershed

QUIZ: Where is the water?

  • Read AND take notes on the content on page 3 of the module BEFORE you begin your quiz.

DISCUSSION: The Great Pacific Trash Dump

  • Use this RUBRIC to help you write a discussion posting that will earn full points.
  • Make sure when you respond to your classmates that you post AT LEAST a 2-3 sentence response. "I agree with..." or "I disagree with..." is not enough to earn full points for a response. You must say why you agree or disagree and back up your reasoning.
  • Develop a plan to investigate and remediate the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. In your plan include and explain all of the following:

    • Sources of garbage
    • Environmental consequences of ocean trash
    • Description of location of "Patch"
    • Clear plan of action to remove and remediate
  • The following resources may be helpful to you as you compose your discussion posting:

Lab: The Poop on Poop - Wastewater Treatment

FRQ: Groundwater Pollutants

  • To receive full credit for the free response question, you will need to show all steps necessary to explain how the answer was found.
  • The College Board used to offer 11 possible points for each FRQ, but a student can never earn more than 10 points on an FRQ. So your FRQs will be graded out of 10 points.
  • Watch these videos for help answering FRQs: FRQ Tips and Tricks Part 1, FRQ Tips and Tricks Part 2
  • FRQs may NOT be resubmitted for a higher grade.

TEST: Water Pollution and Treatment

  • Do not begin your test until you have completed all self-assessments, assignments, and the review items and feel confident in your understanding of this material.
