This web page will keep students and parents informed about assignments, projects and upcoming events pertaining to the classroom. In addition to the website, a newsletter will be sent home on Fridays with upcoming school information and test dates in each core subject area.
Students will complete note-taking, vocabulary books, and guided & applied questions for each chapter. Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to work on short-term and long-term projects, written reports and collaborative lab activities. Assignments will be posted on the science page.
Daily, we will read over a section or two and notes from a chapter. Students will participate in visual, oral, and cooperative hands-on activities to reinforce concepts currently being studied. These activities will be graded as participation (15 - 50 pts).
Quizzes will be taken midway through the chapter. Tests will be taken as a final assessment. The day before students take a test, we will review major concepts. Assessments will be comprised of a variety of questions in the form of multiple choice, short answer and application questions assisted with diagrams and maps.
