Welcome to my science class. This is my 20th year teaching and my 17th year at R.K. Smith Middle School. I am looking forward to teaching your student this year.
This year I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be to posted and collected digitally.
To access Google Classroom please use the following link https://classroom.google.com/ and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the “Google Classroom” link on the left side of the menu.
Much of what we will be doing in Science this year is based on real world phenomena. Our science performance expectations will force students to think outside the box, ask questions, collaborate and discuss, and apply what they have learned to different eveyday real life situations.
I am looking forward to a great year with all of my students and with the help of parents I'm assured that this will be a great year.
