Monts de Oca, Faith

8th Grade Science   Mrs. Monts de Oca  

 

Monday: Students will finish experimenting with how the materials used, structure and foundation of a building help determine how likely a building will withstand an earthquake.

Tuesday-Friday:  Students will use computers to research one of three groups.  Some students will research materials used, other students will research the structure of buildings and the last group of students will research which type of foundation on earth is best for buildings and bridges.   Each group of students will have a different set of vocabulary words.

**This is a content grade and will require a lot of effort on the student’s part.  Each day of research, students will fill out a notecard to turn in and get individual feedback from me.  Also, students are encouraged to try first, then ask for help if they get stuck.

** Any student not happy with their grade has been encouraged to schedule a brief meeting with me to discuss our plan for success.  Many students are not used to studying or are studying in an ineffective way and a few small changes can make a big difference!

  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.
