Gifted and Talented Science
You will need your agenda, a single subject spiral notebook with a folder, a pencil, and your Chromebook.
We each learn best in different ways, but no matter how you learn, you must be engaged in what you are doing. Communicating with your peers will allow you to get their view on the subject and create a life skill you will need for any profession you choose!
Thinking Outside of the Box
For too long, science education has been focused on memorization from text books which leaves out the most important part of science: science practices and critical thinking; both essential for many STEM related professions.
Here, we will concentrate on:
- asking the questions
- developing your own hypothesis to a scientific phenomena
- creating and testing models
- making evidence-based arguments
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
We will begin to incorporate some aspects of the new science standards alongside with the current standards. See the links below for a quick overview of the new standards and the conceptual shifts in science education.
- tests, projects = 50%
- classwork = 40%
- homework = 10%
