Friday, Sept 18 5th, 6th, and 7th periods

Students turned in the SG 11-14 today.  Grades will be in CTLS and Synergy/Studentvue/Parentvue very soon.

Cell City with scaffolding for project

Students worked with the teacher to complete the first page of this document, which compares the organelles in a cell to parts of a city.  Then, in preparation for a project they will work on next week, they did the second page, in which they picked their own organization, (castle, football team, amusement park, school, etc.)  and compared the organelles of a cell to the parts of that organization.  Specific directions for the project will be given at the beginning of next week.

Friday, Sept 4

Today students reviewed the concepts of common features among all cells, including the cell theory.

There was PLENTY of time in class to work on Study Guide (SG) questions 6-10, which are due next Friday,  I expect all of these assignments to be turned in on time.  If you have problems, you should email me or come to the ILT Session on Thursday, Sept 10.

Tuesday, Sept 1

September already!  I hope the temperatures will feel like fall soon.

Today my 5th, 6th, and 7th period classes marked some important information in their paper textbooks.  It’s important that you have your textbook with you for science class.

The assignment that is due Friday for you is a digital lesson in the digital textbook.  The textbook company was having some issues today, but I hope those will be resolved.  This is what you do:

How to do a digital lesson from the textbook – as of 12:40 on Tuesday afternoon, the textbook website was experiencing problems on their end.  If it is not working by Thursday morning, I will change the due date of the assignment.

1. Open the digital textbook from the Lesson Resources tab, or from my blog’s post at the top.
2. Look up at the black/gray bar – click the assignment tab
3. Click on the correct assignment – the one due this week is called Digital Lesson, Characteristics of Cells
4. If you have a lot of old assignments listed, you can sort by date so the newest one is at the top
5. Type in answers as you go The teacher will be able to track what you are doing. You will not submit it in CTLS.
