Hello from Earth Science class. This week we will review rocks and minerals for preparation for the Rock and minerals unit test onOct 8, 2015. Students will create deeper connections to mineral and rocks by take their post assessment test to see their learning growth, work on interactive labs, answer videos questions, and vocabulary games.
Parents, I have signed 6th grade up for access to the online textbook. The website is my.hrw.com. Students were given their usernames and passwords which should be located in the front cover their journal. Students will be able to have access to more interactive labs, an audio version of the book, section summaries, vocabulary word, and the interactive notebook. Students will also be able to read the book online and be able to submit. I plan on using this a resource inside and outside of class.
Remember to check Edmodo for my homework.
Standards for this week:
S6E5.b. Investigate the contribution of minerals to rock composition.
S6E5.c. Classify rocks by their process of formation.
S6E5.d. Describe processes that change rocks and the surface of the earth.
Mr. Adams' ELA/Reading Class
Students were introduced to 4-Square Writing Process. This graphic organizer helps students easily organize their thoughts when writing essays. Students completed 4-Squares that they had to turn in as assignments, and will write an essay next week using this format. We will also be working on reading comprehension skills. Students will be “citing evidence”. When completing reading comprehension questions, students will have to list the page number, paragraph number, and line number where they found their answer.
Testing: I do not administer multiple choice or true false tests. All exams are short answer or constructed response. Not only does this type of testing help students to develop their critical thinking skills, but it also aligns with state standards in Reading and Language Arts. As stated earlier, this course is HEAVILY writing intensive, therefore, it is important that each student have the required materials for class. (See syllabus on Edmodo)
