  1. WELCOME to Science with Mrs. Willis

  2. FLORIDA ELA STATE STANDARDS • Students are expected to embrace the discipline of science: Read like a scientist Write like a scientist Speak like a scientist Listen like a scientist Think and work like a scientist

  3. Classroom Expectations • Be polite: This rule includes respect of school rules, school/individual property and, most importantly, respect for others.. • Be organized: Students are responsible for coming to class prepared. Required daily materials are as follows: • Pencil/Pen • Science Journal • Textbook • Completed Homework • Be punctual

  4. SCIENCE CURRICULUM QUARTER 1 • Nature/Practice of Science • Water properties • Macromolecules • Enzymes • Cells

  5. SCIENCE CURRICULUM QUARTER 2 • DNA/Protein Synthesis • Cell Cycle/Meiosis • Genetics

  6. SCIENCE CURRICULUM QUARTER 3 • Evolution • Classification • Plants

  7. SCIENCE CURRICULUM QUARTER 4 • Ecology • Human Body • Biotechnology

  8. STANDARDS-BASED LEARNING • In Standards-based grading, the main idea is that the grade is a measure of what students know or can do. It is not a measure of how well the students are obedient and it is not a measure of how much effort the students put into homework. • What changes will you see? You will see your student tracking their progress on learning goals and more formative assessments that provide information to the student and teacher about where they are in their learning. When looking at Home Access Center, you are going to see fewer grades.

  9. STUDENT SELF-MONITORING • Evaluate Knowledge using Benchmark Study Guides • Set Learning Goals • Student/Teacher Conference

  10. RESOURCES • Benchmark Study Guide • Textbook • Hands-On Activities and Investigations • Schoology
