Learning about Energy in Science Class
The new learning unit
in science class is about energy. Students will
demonstrate what they have learned about the topic through a series of menu
assessments. Students get the power of choice through the menu and there are a
variety of ways for students to show what they have learned about energy. All of the assessments for the menu can be found on the science website.
The menu assessments available on the science website.
Students can earn up
to 10 points for each week of the menu. Students can do as many assessments as they would like
to get their total points. However, there is no extra credit. Student progress for each week will be monitored using a separate progress report on Edline. Only the overall, final grade for each chapter will be posted to the grading period report.
There is also nightly homework for students to review and study the topics from class. Many of the tasks are videos developed to review the important terms and concepts regarding energy. Each assignment can be found on the science website's timeline. There is no credit or points for homework tasks, but they are essential to learning the ideas about energy.
