Today the students took the quiz on the first part of the energy unit in science. As I predicted, I am happy to state that virtually all showed mastery! Once more I am very impressed! Keep up the awesome work and yes, the grades are posted.
Also, we continued working on the project after the quiz. While the brochure is due Thursday and the students have been working very hard on it, I have decided that we will stop on Thursday. What this means is that I will continue to allow class time, when I can, in January for students to keep working.
I want to emphasize that students will not be penalized for anything that cannot be controlled. We have had technical difficulties too numerous to list that had to be overcome. If the students are not finished on Thursday, they will NOT be penalized. I hope that this will help alleviate some anxiety about the project.
Before the quiz I had them do a shorter version of the warm-up.
Tomorrow and Thursday will be normal days and we will not switch classed on Friday.
