An appropriate student response should provide evidence of the student’s understanding……….
• Poison ivy causes a rash and itching in three out of four people.
• Reaction comes from oil in plants and from smoke of burning plant.
• If you get poison ivy on your skin --
-- wash the affected area with soap as soon as possible to stop the rash.
(Within 10 minutes is preferred.) Soap breaks down oil and reduces reaction.
• If you already have a rash --
-- use either calamine lotion or hot water w/baking soda or cornstarch.
-- see a doctor if it gets worse.
For example, an appropriate response to this question would show that the student canA. If my friend and I were hiking through the woods and we saw a poison ivy plant, I would explain to my
friend why these plants can cause a health problem by explaining how three out of four people are allergic to
them, how they grow just about everywhere in North America, and that the allergen in poison ivy plants is
contained in an oil found almost anywhere on the plant. So it isn’t just the leaves that are dangerous. The oil
rubs off easily on clothes or skin when you brush against it. Pets that roam in areas where poison ivy grows can
bring it back to you on their coat. Even the smoke from burning poison ivy can cause a rash on some people.
B. If my friend accidentally touched the poison ivy plant he or she should wash those areas with soap, like it is
mentioned in the article. The soap breaks down the oil and reduces the allergic reaction. In the article it says
if poison ivy gets on your clothes don’t touch them until you get home. And try to take them off without
touching the parts that were in ivy. In the article it also points out that if you’ve already broken out calamine
lotion or hot water with baking soda or cornstarch can help reduce the itching, so my friend should do that
too. The article also says if you have a history of bad poison ivy, or if the ivy gets bad, to see your doctor to
get other medications, so my friend would also need to see his doctor, just to be on the safe side.
Student answers both parts of the question and identifies all of the main ideas
of the passage as well as their supporting details.
breaks down the oil and reduces the allergic reaction. Doing this within 10 min. can stop rashes
or blisters befor they start. If the poison ivy is on your cloths don’t touch them until you get home.
Take them off without touching the parts that were in the ivy. If you’r already broken out, calamine
lotion or hot water with baking soda or cornstarch can help reduce the iching. If the poison ivy gets
bad or you have a history of bad poison ivy, see you’r doctor to get other medications. Of course,
the best way to avoid this nasty rash is to know what it looks like -- stay away.
you. You’r pets could bring it home and give it to you! Also the oil that is in the plants rubs against
you and soaks into your skin. The oil that is in the plant is not just in the leafs, it’s also in the stem.
You always need to know what these plants look like.
Student gives a strong answer for part b, but a limited answer for part a. Student
identifies most of the main ideas of the passage as well as their supporting details. This is a “3” response.
