MsInmons Physical Science Class - Contains Unit Plans, Lesson Plans, Standards, Calendar
Classroom Resources - Content in class, Power Points for Guided Notes, and Homework 
Homework - Homework Due Dates
 
Students must now use these links to access current content and guided notes.  Current Content will no longer be posted to the Weebly starting on November 1st. 
 
Weebly 
 
Students may access my Website by cliking on this link: Ms.Inmon's Weebly.   This site can be used by the students to access make up work, alternative assignements, and homework/review answers. 
 
Parts of this website will be phased out starting November 1st as all my content is available on my Teacher Website.  The Weebly Website will not contain current content after the month of October. 
 
Students must use the Classroom Resources Page and Homework link to access current content or homework due dates.  Students always have the option to see me after school to get make up work, remediation, or tutoring.
 
The Weebly will still house all remediation for the months of August-October, All Make Up Work, Homework Answers, and Reveiw Answers. 
 
Remediation 
 
Remediation Week of September 25th-29th to make up 2 zeroes. 
Remediation Week of October 30th-November to make up 2 zeroes. 
Remediation Week of December 4-8 Last Chance to make up 2 Zeroes.
 
Remediation Contract List September 24th-30th 
Remediation Contract List December 4-8 
 
Any student who needs help with their make up work may come to tutoring if they do not understand the remediation sheet or what they are missing on infinite campus.  This will allow the teacher to re-counsel the student and provide the work to the student so they can make up any zeros in the gradebook.
 
Remediation only applies to students with zeros.  If your student does not have a zero in the gradebook this is simply a progress report and needs to be signed and turned into the teacher. 
 
Students that need to make up work can also make up work on this Website or my Weebly Website. The Weebly website is posted on the ITS Learning system, Remind 101, Edmodo, and the Syllabus. 
 
Remind 101 
 
Remind 101 code for Parents is Inmonpar.  Sign up at remind.com to get text updates on when important assignments are due.
 
Students need to use this website or the Weebly to complete Guided Notes.  All homework due dates and class assignments may also be found on this Website as well as my Weebly. 
 
Notebooks 
 
Notebook Checklist for Notebook Grades.  Notebooks must be together for student to receive credit.  All foldables and Guided Notes from each chapter are to be in one section.  They do not need to be in a specific order; however, they can not be mixed in with other chapters.  They all must appear on the table of contents and be in the same section.  Students who do not have a notebook will recieve a 0% for their notebook check even if they have the foldables and notes.  They MUST be glued into a notebook for credit.  Dates Shown are the dates the check is conducted.
 
 
Calendar 
 
My Calendar and the Standards may be located on my Physical Science Page.

Coloring in the Classroom

Graphic Organizers: Graphic organizers are visual thinking tools that demonstrate relationships between facts, concepts, or ideas, and guide your thinking as you design the map or diagram. Graphic organizers can help to visualize and construct ideas, organize and/or sequence information, plan what to write, increase reading comprehension, brainstorm, organize problems and solutions, compare and contrast ideas, show cause and effect, and more. The ability to color-code thoughts in a picture can help significantly in understanding and remembering the information. Dr. Parrott uses graphic organizers in notes, assignments and they are required on all crib sheets in preparation for every test/exam.

Graphic organizers aid students in developing critical thinking and other higher order thinking skills. (Brookbank, et.al., 1999; DeWispelaere & Kossack, 1996)

Graphic organizers are a helpful tool for improving retention and recall of information for students at all age and skill levels.

(Bos & Anders, 1992; Ritchie & Volkl, 2000)

Graphic organizers may help students develop stronger problem-solving and general mathematical skills and knowledge.

(Braselton & Decker, 1994; Monroe & Orme, 2002)

Graphic organizers may help second language learners improve higher order thinking skills.

(DeWispelaere & Kossack, 1996)

Graphic organizers seem to be quite beneficial for use with learning disabled students, as they help students comprehend content area material, organize information, and retain and recall content.

(Boyle & Weishaar, 1997; Gardill & Jitendra, 1999; Kim et al., 2004)


Interactive Notebooks

An interactive notebook is a tool students use to make connections prior to new learning, to revise their thinking, and to deepen their understandings of the world around them. It is the culmination of a student’s work throughout the year that shows both the content learned (input) and the reflective knowledge (output) gained.
