High School Physical Science(8th-12th)
Please note that this class starts at 9:20. It is a slightly different start time than the other first class on the schedule.
This class is still under design. It is designed for a full high school credit. 8th graders will be allowed to take it. If you are enrolling your 8th grader and plan to use it for high school credit please check with your umbrella school before you do to be sure it will meet their requirements. Some organizations will allow you to report it in 8th grade and others won't so make sure you know what your umbrella school regulations are. Also realize that if you count it in 8th grade it may count for high school but some colleges will still want to see science in high school as well. My point is to consult with your umbrella school so that you aren't surprised.
The content will be high school level. Once I decide on a book and have a scope and sequence I will post it.
As with all my classes you will get some kind of lab, that will discuss the scientific method, and lab report writing. The lab will be a combination of hands on activities, demonstrations, guest speakers and possibly field trips. The image to the right is not representative of anything other than it says physical science.
There will be a $50 lab fee. You will have the option to either rent the book from me or purchase it. I will post information here once I have it.
This class counts as a full science credit for high school.
