Please review the 10 Teach 10 graphic about the JCMS Guidelines for Classroom Passes. We will implement these guidelines on Tuesday, November 12th. If your student lost his/her planner, he/she can purchase one in the office for $5, or he/she can bring his/her own personal planner to use.

## Science with Ms. Hoyle
Students will be doing some labs to collect data, calculate speed, and graph speed. Students still have a daily BCA question that they get points for. In order to get all 10 points each day students must answer the question to the best of their ability. As long as they try, and are on task in the discussion board, they will receive 10 points. Students also have frequent exit questions. The exit questions are 5 points each, and are graded on accuracy. The exit question goes along with what the students should have learned prior to me giving them the question. | ## Math with Mrs. BangeMonday- Students will begin writing equations from word problems and then solving them. We will complete Lesson 7 Notes. Tuesday- Each group will be given a word problem where they must sketch a picture, write and solve an equation, and explain their answer. This will be a project (80%) grade. Wednesday- We will begin learning about inequalities (Lesson 12 notes and problem set). Thursday and Friday- Students will write inequalities and solve them- Lesson 13 and 14 notes and problem set. | ## World Geography with Mr. AkagiNext week in World Geography, we continue our unit into East Asia, by focusing on Japan for 3 days. We will examine the Japanese islands, and the impact that natural disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis have on them. Then the last two days we will begin talking about the Koreas, with a bit on exactly how and why there are two Koreas, and how they interact with each other and the rest of the world. |

## Language Arts with Ms. Griem

Language Arts classes will be starting Part 3 of *Long Way Down *by Jason Reynolds. Remember if your student has a 50% “F” grade in skyward it can be redone/corrected until it is 100%. IF a score of 50% “F” is given in the gradebook the student has either scored below a 50%, has turned in the assignment incomplete, or has not turned in the assignment. ALL scores that are 50% are going to be marked missing until the student has turned in/corrected the assignment.
