Thanks for checking into team nine.
This week in science we studied photosynthesis and cellular respiration! Students designed an experiment to answer the question, do I have more CO2 in my breath after I exercise? WE also got our test scores back for our first test, if students would like to get a better grade on that, they can complete the test corrections form in schoology by Thursday.
US History- Mr. Janner
Speaking of 80% assignments, our DBQ essays are turning out nicely. Student were challenged to analyze documents on the Gold Rush and answer the question, "Did the Gold Rush have a positive or negative impact on California?" I have graded almost all of 2nd and 3rd Hour essays, so I will move onto 5th and 8th Hours' shortly. I am taking my time grading these so I can leave accurate and meaningful feedback for our students. If you see a asterisk in the gradebook, your students HAS turned in the essay, but I haven't graded it yet. If you see 50% grade, your student did not turn in the essay and it is passed due.
As soon as we finish with our Industrial Revolution Unit, we will move on to the events that lead up to the Civil War!
Language Arts- Mrs. Murphy
It's an exciting time in Language Arts! Team 9 students just started our third unit of the year. Our focus question for Unit 3 is "What role should ethical considerations play in the advancement of technology?" Students just finished reading the short story "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. We will spend the week of Feb. 4-8 looking closely at this story and how it applies to our focus question.
Please feel free to e-mail me at any time if you have questions about your student or my class. I am happy to help!
