10-31-06 volcanoes

The volcanoes earthquake homework is to reward the students that took notes, and behaved respectful to the presenter during their presentations. The students that paid attention to my request for note taking, and listening will have their halloween homework almost done. I then suggested that they students approach the presentations of other students and mine with respect and take notes at all time during my class. They are going to have to produce two sided note work about another groups different region. They will be required to do this for the rest of my class, for all movies, presentations, lectures, and lab or activity work. Respectful behavior is not just expected at our school, it is required in my class.

No homework.

Home work 8-29-06 Earth core layers

The home work for tonight is to now use the resources identified on the previous night and write down facts, and related topics about your selected Earth's core layer in the Bloom's graphic organizer handout. I will check your work in class. You will keep this sheet until you are finally done with your assignment. This worksheet/tonight's homework will be graded complete or incomplete depending whether you have demonstrated a reasonable level of effort.

The start of the first "writing project" .

The assignment was assigned on Monday, 8-28-06. The first step that I have instructed the students to begin is choosing a layer of the Earth's core to investigate in more detail, and find where they can obtain more information about that layer. The resources I suggested were the internet, google, the encyclopedia, the dictionary, etc. I also instructed them to read the Bloom's Taxonomy worksheet to help think in more depth about how the facts they will uncover connect, and can be interpreted. The first step of the assignment is not due till Wednesday on 8-30-06. They will have put some ideas, facts and details, that will eventually allow them to write a short report on the specific layer or aspect a layer that have chosen. There is a quiz on 8-29-06, and we will further review what I want in their writing report. I have not scheduled a due date for the final report.

Chapter 4.1 worksheet homework due Thursday 8-24-06

Nothing new kids and parents in terms of info on the homework. I have this info on my previous homework blog. Remember we will be reviewing this homework tomorrow, we will be reviewing the answers to the questions on Wednesday, and you will complete them in complete sentences by Thursday.

I want to advise you that although this is the second week of school, science is a fun but precise discipline and I will be grading slightly more rigidly from this month forward. I will not be happy with late homework if you have been present in my class.

Homework assigned 8/17/06 due 8/18/06

The homework for the students is to describe the relative thickness or depth, temperature, and (state: for example liquid, solid, or plastic), for the layers that make up the core of the Earth. They have two work sheets and a diagram that they drew that will help them accomplish this.

This is an example of what I want. The temperature of the crust is colder or cooler relative to the inner core.
Another example is the following. The mantle is thicker than the crust.
