My Students

My students at SGCHS are very serious when it comes to science! They study and take notes I give in the class room and participate in class room discussion on a daily basis. The learning is enhanced when everyone on board takes the learning seriously.

My students are very united while working with other class mates on assignments and projects.

Students are well-behaved, have good character, and are accepting of others. They are usually good listeners and good speakers which helps to gain the respect of the group. Not all students learn or think the same way, so acceptance from one another is a key component in groups prospering and learning.

SGCMS students are very discipline and always focus on the objective and end result. The students also are profound in connecting their results/evidence to the world in which they live. They are driven by questioning things around them and finding answers that helps them make sense of their world. I feel that is what make my student so easy to teach...their curiosity about the world around them!

My Project

I chose an erosion table where the student can view how water affects nearby land. They will not be able to see the effects of water but design new ways to conserve the land nearby and prevent erosion.

The students will be able to view erosion of a river system and how it impacts the nearby land and biotic organisms.

After students view the problem of erosion, they will be able to problem-solve ways to correct issues that environmentalists deal with concerning damaging nearby ecosystems, biotic and abiotic factors within the ecosystems and consequences that might arise in the near future.

By giving the student this hands on experience, it will become a real issue. The students will be able to hypothesis solutions and explore different outcomes.
