Wednesday August 31, 2016
Today I shared my syllabus and answered:
1. Where do I sit? 2. What are the rules? 3. What are we going to be doing this year?
4. How do I earn my grade? 5. Who is the teacher as a person 6. Will the teacher treat me as a human being and with respect.
At the end of class, we looked at a demonstration of air expanding when heated.
For extra credit, students will turn in the syllabus with a parent signature -- due tomorrow.
Students were asked to bring a composition book for use in class -- due next Tuesday.

I shared some information about how to achieve academic success in high school. We had a discussion about CLASSROOM NORMS -- that is, what rules we will follow so that everyone is welcomed, accepted and able to participate. We played a game called "Two Truths and One Lie." I am working to get to know my students.
