Class Experience

Students will learn about states of matter and their chemical and physical changes, in addition to atomic structure and interactions, the periodic table, and the Law of Conservation of Matter. Students will be challenged with scientific engineering practices throughout the course to develop their STEM awareness. 
I am an elementary and middle school math and science teacher,  and have taught middle school science for 8 years from 6-8th grade. I am licensed as a science teacher from 6-12 grade, with a Masters in Science Education. I like making learning relate to real world experiences so students can connect to material easier than standard memorization. I review in a flow pattern that starts with basic information and expands into complex information to assist students with retention. 
Students will receive practice materials to support each week's concepts, as well as STEM integrated activities to enhance STEM awareness and skills. 
Handouts will be provided before each session on the discussion board as an attachment and as a Google Doc link for digital access if preferred. Notetakers will be provided and are encouraged to be printed prior to session so students can fill in as we go. Answer Keys will be provided on Fridays. Supplemental materials will also be provided so students can review between sessions. Videos will be provided to all participants of each session.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will be able to, at the end of each unit, complete a digital break out room and complete a quiz for each topic to support academic mastery. Scores of quizzes will be sent to families after each assessment is completed. Students will also receive a final project to using engineering practices and design their own process to demonstrate mastery. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please review course information to ensure students may review key concepts with instructor. Students will learn atomic theory and atomic structure. Students will also be given opportunities for laboratory experiments that may require adult supervision. Please review labs and STEM activities each week for safety suggestions. 

Please note standards associated with this course come from Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and are designed for a full middle school experience. 

Also, please know that Kahoot, Superscience, and Khan Academy will not require subscriptions and all links will be made available in the classroom for access. 
Students will gain resources from the teacher, as well as use Kahoot for review, Google Slides for Breakout rooms, Super Science Digital Magazine (free), Google Jamboards for activities, Google Docs for notes and digital handouts, and Google Forms for assessment. Any labs that require supplies will be provided in the week's activity.
