Monts de Oca, Faith

8th Grade Science   Mrs. Monts de Oca  

Week of January 15th

Monday:  MLK day Tuesday: Students will review from last week, watch a video on the differences between classic breeding and genetic engineering, and continue their dog breeding activity. Wednesday: Students will finish our discussion on artificial selection and have a short, open note quiz. Thursday: Students will take a pretest on changing ecosystems that will not effect their grade, however it is considered PRACTICE for the major writing piece at the end of this unit. Friday: Students will go over the pretest and analyze student samples.


  Student Expectations:
1. Come to school!  If you miss class, YOU are responsible for getting your work, completing it and turning it in on time.
2. Have your materials ready.  Something to write with, paper, and your organized binder.
3. Be ready to work.  There is a time and place for goofiness, and it isn't always science class :)
4. Communicate with me.  I can't help you if I don't know you need help!
5. Outside work.  For most students, it is NECESSARY to study outside of class.  5-15 mnutes of review at home a day can boost your knowledge and scores dramatically.
*Email is the best way to contact me if you have any questions or concerns!  You can find my email address under the "Contact Details" to the right.
