It was great to have have all of the students back to school! Students have now made it through all of their classes and tomorrow will be a "normal" day. Students did not receive their syllabus in science class yet...we'll go over that tomorrow...but I've attached it here in case you'd like to preview the information. Today we spent time getting to know each other and thinking about the process of analyzing data in scientific investigations. If you have any questions at all, please let me know.
I am looking forward to a great year!
I hope that you are all enjoying the last few weeks of summer! Soon, it will be time to head back to school and I'm looking forward to seeing all of the students. As you prepare for the new school year, I encourage you to explore this website so that you will be familiar with where to find information as the school year progresses. Check out the This website will help you to keep up on what is going on in class, but most of the instructional materials (handouts, readings, videos, etc.) will be shared with students directly using Google Classroom. You can expect that this site will be updated about once a week or so.
Is this page just for parents and guardians?
No! This blog is for anyone who wants to know what is going on in our class (that should include students too!). Just because the language is written with parents/guardians in mind, that doesn't mean that students won't benefit from checking in with this blog. It just means that parents don't have to wade through all of the resources posted under the instructional unit section of this site. Likewise, that section of the website isn't meant to be a "parent-free" zone. Parents/guardians can use the resources posted there to help their student or just to stay in touch with what's going on in the classroom.
