X-EIGHTER'S UPDATE

Teaching Minds*Touching Hearts*Transforming Lives*15 Sep 14

What has been done...

Well, its been 3 weeks into the school year. 1st progress reports are due. I have had a chance to meet the parents of my students during Open House. Students have settled down in terms of classes and classroom expectations. I've had a chance to try out new things and utilized emerging technologies in my classes, though, not necessarily new methods or strategies. In particular, I started using Science Interactive Notebooks in my classes, particularly in Physics I, and it has worked wonders to keep students engaged and organized. For AP Chemistry, I did an online teleconference consultation session via anymeeting.com. I look forward to utilizing more of these in the future.

Physics I Updates

We will be wrapping up the unit on 1-D Kinematics and Vectors. Your first major test will be on Sep 23 (A-Day)/Sep 24 (B-Day). Then, we will continue with 2-D Kinematics. Check skyward often to make sure you have all assignments turned in.

AP Chemistry Updates

We will continue on reaction stoichiometry the next two weeks. We will also have our 1st lab this Tuesday, Sep 16, 3-5pm. Guidelines on how to compose your lab notebooks is in my google drive under AP Chemistry Labs. The 1st Lab is on Physical and Chemical Changes-Guided Activity from Carolina Biological.
