Wednesday August 27

Early Release Day -- Shortened Schedule

We graded the "Getting to Know Your Textbook" questions to make sure that students know where to find information in their textbook and how to use it.

Students will be given another Hypothesis worksheet to work on for Homework.  Due first thing in class tomorrow.

Tuesday, August 26

Students were to finish their "Getting to Know Your Textbook" worksheet today.  Most everyone finished in class but there are some that still need to complete it at home.  There is an online textbook students could use instead of checking out a textbook from me.  If you go to our class science page, there are instructions for the online codes in the "forms and docs" page.  Click the link just under the panther at the top of this page and it will take you to the website.

THIS IS HOMEWORK ---- Due Tomorrow (Wednesday).  Students have been encouraged to check out a textbook to complete it.

Monday August 25

Students are to continue their "Getting to Know Your Textbook" worksheet.  I had a sub today and it seems that the students did not finish their work like I thought they would.  We will finish them in class tomorrow.  No Homework.

Friday August 22

Students tried to complete their  hypothesis worksheet and then we went over the answers.  They were to keep their papers until they get the second set next week.  The next set will be for a right or wrong grade but both papers will be turned in together and combined as one grade.

Students got a question sheet on "Getting to know your textbook".  They will use the books in class to work on in class the next few days.  Students are learning how to find information in their textbooks by looking for information in the table of contents, understanding how chapters and sections are set up and how to use the information to review for tests.  The students will have time in class to complete on Monday and we will grade them on Tuesday.  NO HOMEWORK this weekend!!

Thursday August 21

Checked the history of science questions and discussed how to complete a worksheet on developing a hypothesis from a problem that needed to be solved.  Students should work on this for homework.  It will be for participationg grade only so students can practice developing appropriate hypothesis.

Wednesday August 20

Students that did not pass thier quiz took it over again today.  Students that did pass worked on their History of Science questions.  If these questions are not completed, they will be homework.  Students should have came back to me at the end of the day for a copy of the text to take home with them.  We will grade those in class tomorrow.

Students graded their quiz today and they should be able to tell you their score.  They had to score 90% or higher and if they did not, they have to take it again tomorrow.  The students that do not have to take the quiz over will work on the History of Science questions and text.  They should have turned in their Scientific Method CW puzzle today.  No homework!
