(Use a portable LCD projector and screen to project images)

 

“Class, I want you to look at the pictures projected on the board and please tell me what have you observed.”

(Pick 5 students to answer)

 

(Students will raise their hands)

“Thank you class, all of your answer are correct. It is very hard to live having problems with our body especially our nervous system. We should learn to value the functions and importance of the nervous system.”

“Today our topic is all about the nervous system. When you hear the words nervous system, what comes first in your mind? Anyone?

   

(Pick 2 students from each group)

 

(Students raise their hands)

“Thank you, please listen attentively because later on we will have our examination.

 

“The nervous system is the part of an animal's body that coordinates its actions and transmits signals to and from different parts of its body.”

 

“Brief information about the subject”

“How about the major divisions of the nervous system. Anyone?

 

(Pick 2 students from each group)

“Thank you class. The major divisions of the nervous system are the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system.”

“Talking about the peripheral nervous system (PNS), what are its 3 subdivisions?”

 

“The PNS is divided into somatic, autonomic and the enteric nervous system Sir.”

“Yes, Very Good. The PNS is divided into somatic, autonomic and the enteric nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is further divided in to 2 parts. What are these parts?

“The autonomic nervous system is further subdivided into the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous systems.”

“Good job! The sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

 

“Very Good! It seems like you are really listening to the discussion.”

“Class, please turn on your computers and please open the folder containing the activity on the nervous system. Read the following links related to the part of the nervous system and accomplish the interactive digital file for 15 minutes then later I will ask someone from the group to explain each.”

Student’s Activity

“I know you’ve learned a lot from this days’ discussion, so anyone who can summarize the lesson?”

 

(Call 2 students to generalize the topic)

(Students will raise their hands)

“Thank you, it is very important for every student to learn the importance and functions of the nervous system in detecting external and internal stimuli, processes and responds to sensory input, controls body movements through skeletal muscles, maintains homeostasis by regulating other systems, and is the center for mental activities.”

V. ASSIGNMENT

  • 12. INFORMATION DISSEMINATION ACTIVITY

  • 13. Social media post about the different diseases affecting

the human nervous system.

  • 14. Goal: The objective of this performance task is for the students

to present helpful information to the public about the different diseases affecting the human nervous system through the use of social media. The students should assume that they work for an advertising company as a graphic artist and their task is to create a public information material. They have to think of ways on how to disseminate information to the public regarding the different diseases affecting the human nervous system.

  • 15. Audience: The target individuals to receive the information are

the people in the school community including all students, teachers and

school officials.

  • 16. Situation: The students will gather information from the school

library or from local health workers regarding the different diseases affecting the human nervous system. The challenge for the students involves dealing with this existing problem be creating a social media post that will stir-up the people’s consciousness in adopting a healthy lifestyle.

  • 17. Standards: The students will be given seven (2) days to

conceptualize and execute their ideas through creation of a social media post. Once the output is evaluated, they will post it in a social media

platform such as Facebook where everyone can see it. The student’s outputs will be assessed in accordance with the following rubric.
