This is going to be a great year of discovery for your student. Please make sure you and your children have read and discussed all the lab safety and classroom expectations.
WHAT ARE YOUR STUDENTS LEARNING AND HOW WILL THEY DEMONSTRATE MASTERY? Next Generation Science Standards These are the adopted standards for the science curriculum in Washington State. They are written to help clarify the "what" they are learning, "how" they will demonstrate learning, and "why" what they have learned is applicable not only at the science level but in real world. The NGSS reflects the need to make more connections to enhance learning for students and provide them valuable skills that cross many disciplines. The NGSS includes past coding from Common Core Standards and the participation of the National Research Council in the creation of the NGSS. Click here to learn how to read the NGSS as there are many components involved in the "big picture".
CLASS FEES: Below is the information regarding CLASS FEES. If you have any questions, please have your students direct their questions to Cynthia Lorrain, the ASB bookkeeper.
TECHNOLOGY: To learn more, go to the Apps page. SEESAW: Parents can connect with the course and student performance in class through this app. Parents will have access to their students journal and can also provide feedback to the student and teacher. Parents should be receiving a QR code specific for their students' digital portfolio. Please email me if you have not received your QR code from your student. Some students may need to pick up their Parent QR code sheet (which has directions) from me directly. EDUCREATIONS: Lectures are available online. This allows students to learn at their individual pace and should be watched at home. Student-generated notes from lecture are encouraged. If students need time during school to watch lecture, please contact me so we can work out class time or tutorial to assist students who have limited access to technology. ONENOTE: This is a great location for storing and organizing notes and practice. Teachers can connect with students and answer questions and review student notes and practices directly and provide feedback. Although this can be used to turn in work, there have been technical issues that result in lost work in cyberspace and thus, for now, students will not turn in graded work through OneNote. It will be used to disseminate information and used as a platform for practices.
