Well we are one week in and students are quickly learning science 30 is not going to be a joke! First day of class, the science 30s were assigned a lab in which they had to exercise, and this seemed to be an issue for many of them! The students have come to science with an open mind and positive attitude, and hopefully it will continue for the rest of the semester!
This week, we are diving into the immune system and genetics, and after that, the students have a 9 day break due to teacher convention! It is my hopes that they don't forget everything they have learned up to that point, but we will see Feb 24 when we get back!

A quick note: this semester I have started to do Friday Exit Slips that are a really great tool that allow me to see what students are understanding from the week. The Exit Slips are (mainly) open book, and between 1-4 questions long. Overall, these slips will be worth less than 4% of the total mark, and are an excellent indicator of student understanding as time goes by! I feel these are an excellent indicator for me as the teacher, and great help for studying for students, as they will be comprised of diploma exam style questions to study from!
