Discovery Class Final Exam (also known as Interpersonal Communications Class)

Students will be taking the final exam for this class during the finals schedule. Please note that it is a 5 page test and students will be given 3 days to review for it. The days it would benefit them to be HERE are Dec 12, 15, and 16. Those days will be spent discussing the final, practicing the questions, and doing work that will prepare them to do well. This is a big point final and can substantially lower a grade if not taken seriously. In the past, students have done very well when they attend the review days! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns: slawson@liberty.k12.mo.us

Short Stories I Students...

Short Stories I students are working on a large-point Multimedia Presentation for their final project. This is in lieu of a final exam. Please note that your student will be given 9 days in class as well as free reign to work on it at home any time he/she wishes. Students will present to their class on the following dates: 4th hour – December 17; 7th hour – December 19. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this assignment or need assistance to help at home. Thanks so much for your support! Slawson@liberty.k12.mo.us

Psychology I Students...

Psychology I students: We are spending these last two weeks of class time before finals working on creating games. Each student is expected to create an original game, complete with rules, a fun name, game tokens, scoring pad, and questions. The questions will be based upon our study of the mind and behavior this semester. The class will then play these games during the Psychology Final on Wednesday, 12/17. Please encourage your student to finish strong with exceptional work effort and craftsmanship as these games are the "final" for the class and worth 200 points. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Mrs. Sohm at wsohm@liberty.k12.mo.us

Students who have Science classes...

Finals are coming next week. All science students need to be organizing their notes and reviewing their returned tests. All questions and vocabulary on the science finals will come from previous tests. It is a cumulative final worth 150 points. If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Anderson at... randerson@liberty.k12.mo.us.
