Hopefully everyone got the rest they deserved over the break! And now... its crunch time! This week in chem 20, we will be completing the stoichiometry unit and entering into the review time! In order to better prepare my students for the new exam we will be developing, I spent Christmas holidays creating a 27 page review package to hand out to the kids.... and the photocopier is broken :( So I will be handing that out as soon as it is back up and running. Until then, the students have plenty of work to keep them busy and challenged!
Just a reminder that our regularly scheduled classes will go until Monday Jan 12 followed by Focused Learning Time Tutorials for the remainder of that week and Exam Week starting Jan 19. These FLT Tutorials will allow students to work at their own pace, with their own focuses, and they will be able to work in my classroom all day if they really want to (as long as they are working and not distracting others!) This will allow more of a one on one tutorial approach, as well as encourage group study sessions!
Students also have the option of completing the Science Fair Project, which is a large (completely optional) project that will replace 10% of their final exam (allowing the exam to be worth only 25% instead of the 35% it is worth without the project). This project was handed out early December, and students are very aware of the requirements! The science fair project must be handed in and presented by Friday, January 16 in order to be counted towards the final exam.
Additionally, students have the opportunity to rewrite their unit tests (C/D) during the FLT time, after they complete their corrections for the unit tests. This will allow them to review the two heaviest units prior to the final exam January 21.
