Constructed Response 1

```Warm-up
You and your friend decide to take a road trip to the ROCKY MOUNTAINS
which are located in the Northwestern part of the United States. Look at the
image below and identify what type of plate boundary formed these
mountains.
The western part of North America suffered the effects of repeated
collision as slabs of ocean crust sank beneath the continental edge.
Slivers of continental crust, carried along by subducting ocean plates,
were swept into the subduction zone and scraped onto North America's
edge.
Opening: Review plate boundary movements
Learning Target:
Today I’m learning how to analyze a diagram and write an
effective constructed response.
Work Session:
• Constructed Response Practice
• Using the “Race Strategy” and Diagrams
Closing: Peer-Review
“R.A.C.E. Strategy”
• Restate the question
Use as many words from the original question as possible.
Use the gist of the text to locate the answer.
• Cite the evidence
Use quotes or paraphrase the answer.
Use evidence to connect what you already know.

There are
three types
of tectonic

What are the three types of tectonic plate boundaries?
There are three
types of tectonic
plate boundaries
shown in the map:
Transform,
Convergent, and
Divergent.
Use what you know about the Theory of Plate Tectonics
to explain the movements that occur at these boundaries.
According to the

According to

According to the map, the Indian and Eurasian
Plates are moving towards each other.
When two continental plates collide with each
other, folded mountain ranges are formed. The
Himalaya Mountains are an example of this type
of mountain.

The student response thoroughly demonstrates understanding of the day/night cycle of Earth
[S4E2.a] by
1.explaining the day/night cycle of the earth occurs because of the rotation of Earth, AND
2.explaining the length of the day depends on the tilt of Earth and that when the southern
hemisphere is tilted away from the sun the days will be shorter there, AND
an understanding of how the revolution of Earth around the sun and its tilt affect seasons on
Earth [S4E2.c] by
1.explaining that the seasons change because of the tilt of Earth, AND
2.explaining that sun is more directly overhead year round at the equator, causing seasonal
changes to be less than other places on Earth.
3
The student response clearly demonstrates understanding by correctly answering 3 out of 4
parts of the item or answering 2 parts partially correct and 2 parts correctly.
2
The student response basically demonstrates understanding by correctly answering 2 out of 4
parts of the item or answering 4 parts partially correct.
1
The student response minimally demonstrates understanding by correctly answering 1 out of 4
parts of the item or answering 2 parts partially correct.
0
The student response is missing, irrelevant or incomprehensible.
“Almost There Test”
(Pre-test)
• Take the “Almost There Test”
(You MUST make a 90 to exempt the final exam).
• Read quietly or draw until everyone is finished.
• Work on Constructed Response Questions #1 and 2.
