SCHEDULE FOR THIS WEEK:


SCIENCE:

WE WILL CONTINUE MR. ELLIS' EOG BOOT CAMP THIS WEEK! STUDENTS WILL BE WORKING FROM THE EOG COACH PREP BOOKS. THEY WILL HAVE HOMEWORK THIS WEEK (WEEK 32)


MATH:

WE WILL BE BREAKING UP INTO DIFFERENT GROUPS AND ROTATING BETWEEN MS JOSEPH, MS WOOD, AND MYSELF. THOSE THAT HAVE MS WEST DURING 1/2 PERIOD WILL ROTATE BETWEEN WEST, WOOD, AND JOSEPH! THIS WILL NOT AFFECT MATH 1 STUDENTS. STUDENTS WILL BE WITH EACH TEACHER FOR A WEEK AND MIXED UP WITH STUDENTS FROM THE OTHER MATH CLASSES THEY SHARE THE MATH PERIOD WITH.

WE LOOKED AT DATA TO DETERMINE WHICH TEACHER TAUGHT THE CONCEPT BEST SO THAT THE STUDENTS WILL GET THE BEST TEACHER OF THAT AREA OF MATH AVAILABLE. JOSEPH WILL BE REVIEWING FUNCTIONS. WOOD WILL BE REVIEWING GEOMETRY. ELLIS/WEST WILL BE REVIEWING EQUATIONS. STUDENTS WILL CONTINUE TO GET GRADES FROM THESE TEACHERS(HW, CLASSWORK, QUIZZES) THAT WILL THEN BE GIVEN TO THEIR MATH TEACHER TO PUT INTO THE GRADEBOOK.
