My Students

My students look to carry on a proud tradition of being actively engaged with the content they are learning. We use numerous tools and strategies to help ensure that all students achieve success and enjoy their time here with us. Some of these tools include technology, sense-making science notebooks, flexible grouping, and integration with other curricular areas. Teachers act more as guides to create innovative project-based learning experiences that will engage our diverse group of students in meaningful and relevant projects through which they will not only learn the science content but develop and apply 21st-century skills and knowledge.

My middle school believes in learning environments that foster exciting, active, co-operative learning experiences that celebrate and value the worth of individual diversity.

My Project

As the eighth-graders move from the unit on energy into our unit on electricity, magnetism. and electromagnetism I would like to be able to give them hands-on learning opportunities.

This Introduction To Electromagnetism will do just that.

Students will see that electric currents create a magnetic field and learn how to increase the field's strength by changing the length of wire, number of coils and amount of electric current.

Kids will learn how electromagnets power our everyday devices and get to build a simple motor as well as their own working audio speaker. How awesome is that? They will love it.
