track 1 middle school science
Track 1 – Middle School Science
  • 6th: Life Science
    • Organisms - “Organisms From Macro to Micro”
    • Genetics – “ Our Genes Our Selves”
    • Evolution/Ecology – “Evolution/Ecology”
  • 7th: Earth Science
    • Fundamentals of light: “Light: Part 1”
    • Earth Systems: “Catastrophic Events”
    • Solar System: “Earth In Space”
  • 8th: Physical Science
    • Physics of light: “Light: Part 2”
    • Basic physics: “Energy, Machines and Motion”
    • Basic Chemistry: “Properties of Matter”

things to consider
Things to Consider…
  • Academic Requirements
    • 8th grade biology book is 10 grade reading level
    • Algebra II skills will be essential
  • Motivation and challenge
    • No courses will be “dumbed down”
    • Possible low level of success: C’s and D’s are possible
  • Maturity and comfort level
    • Possibly not with grade level peers
    • Cautious and careful behaviors essential
recommendation
Recommendation…
  • Look at the MSP Scores from 4th grade;
    • Students should be > 430 on reading
    • Students should be > 500 on math
slide8

Can my student change back to Track 1 once they have begun Track 2?

    • Students can only change back if they are receiving an “F”.
  • If they are successful until biology and fail biology as an 8th grader, can they retake biology in high school?
    • Yes, they can retake biology in high school. Passing the End of Course (EOC) Biology Test is required to pass high school
    • However: The grade will go on the high school transcript and will count toward overall high school GPA
