I am excited to be teaching a 6th grade science class after just teaching just encore classes for many years!
The science coursework is designed to engage students in a variety of hands-on and interactive approaches to learning science. This year all science teachers will be using a new curriculum called Mi-STAR. Mi-STAR is designed to be student focused, where the pace and learning comes from the students. Our first using will be on the water cycle. The instruction will be focused on developing problem solving skills, integrating technology using investigations and real world applications. I am looking forward to teaching this curriculum because it offers students the potential to develop strong scientific knowledge and skills.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the content of this course or to discuss student progress.
