Content Standard(s) addressed by this lesson: (Write Content Standards directly from the standard)

Colorado Academic Standard (HS-PS1-5): Energy exists in many forms such as mechanical, chemical, electrical,
radiant, thermal, and nuclear, that can be quantified and experimentally determined

NGSS (HS-PS2-5): Plan and conduct an investigation individually and collaboratively to produce data to serve
as the basis for evidence, and in the design: decide on types, how much, and accuracy of data needed to
produce reliable measurements and consider limitations on the precision of the data (e.g., number of trials,
cost, risk, time), and refine the design accordingly.

CCSS (ELA-Literacy.SL.9-10.1A): Come to discussions prepared, having read and researched material under
study; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence from texts and other research on the topic
or issue to stimulate a thoughtful, well-reasoned exchange of ideas.
Understandings: (Big Ideas)

Self-Acknowledge to gather and read information on teleportation to create accurate, credible arguments
with peers (Logos, 21st Century: Research, Critical Thinking).

Apply knowledge given in research, seminars, and other associated documents on teleportation to create
scientific credible arguments to present (Ethos, 21st Century: Communication, Perseverance, and Leadership).

Perceive the knowledge base level of the scientific argument audience and use it as a foundation to create
needed researched, based scientific arguments (Pathos, 21st Century: Critical Thinking).

Explain the Particle in a Box Method regarding electron probability and the basics of electron tunneling (21st
Century: Critical Thinking).

Inquiry Questions: (Essential questions relating knowledge at end of the unit of instruction, select applicable questions
from standard)

Is teleportation physically possible?

What scientific evidence can be used to prove teleportation is possible?

What scientific evidence can be used to prove teleportation is not possible?

Is all scientific evidence valid? How do you know?

Evidence Outcomes: (Learning Targets) AND (Success Criteria)Using ABCD Objective

I can: utilize information from credible source to create a scientific argument in regards to the possibility of
human teleportation.

This means: I can defend my scientific argument against my peers efficiently based on the information that I
have obtained in reading, discussion, and research.

List of Assessments: (Note whether the assessment is formative or summative)

Annotation and reading of Is Human Teleportation Possible? article assigned to them over the weekend

Completion of the Is Teleportation Possible Worksheet? (formative)

In-depth discussion of teleportation and presentation of arguments via class sides and total discussion

Planned Lesson Activities

Name and Purpose of Lesson Beam Me Up: A Scientific Argument for Teleportation
Should be a creative title - Think of the purpose as
the mini-rationale The purpose of this lesson to expose and demonstrate the commonalities of
scientific theory/lab presentations and discussions found in real-world
applications. Students will be given the opportunity to create their own scientific
arguments on teleportation (whether it is possible or not) based on an assign
reading, additional research, and their own common knowledge. Students will
then present their arguments via multiple styles: individual discussion, class
discussion and seminar (demonstrated by myself through powerpoint).

Approx. Time and Materials Approximate Time: 90 minutes (at minimum)

How long do you expect the activity to last and what Before class period (45 minutes or more):
materials will you need? Read and annotate Is Human Teleportation Possible?
Research anything regarding teleportation to present in class

During class period (45 minutes):

Talk with table partner over their own theories of teleportation possibility
Split into For and Against groups and break into smaller support
Have students present class argument, one-on-one (one student from
each group comes up to defend their groups argument)
Present P.I.A.B Method and Electron Tunneling seminar, and invoke
conversation during the seminar (informal, allow students to interrupt
during seminar as needed)

they have all the information they need for their arguments.

channeling as well, to which I can see which students were able to influence others
based on their well-researched, structured scientific arguments.

My CFU? By standardizing the format of the Is Teleportation Possible? worksheet, I will

be able to more easily track each students scientific arguments, and observe if the
different in-class discussions have either improved their arguments or diminished them
in some ways.

Post Lesson Reflection

1. To what extent were lesson objectives achieved? (Utilize assessment data to justify your level of achievement)

2. What changes, omissions, or additions to the lesson would you make if you were to teach again?

3. What do you envision for the next lesson? (Continued practice, reteach content, etc.)
