Mr. Sutphin's 8th Grade Science
Welcome to 8th Grade Science.
This lab-oriented class will emphasize the use of observation, exploration, experimentation, and data analysis skills as we cover the following content areas: Scientific Investigations, Physical Science, Life Science and Earth Science. Each scientific concept builds on the next, so it is essential to students' success to be in class and participate fully every day. Assessments of learning will include class participation, written assignments, lab reports, written tests and quizzes, lab exams, and special projects.
As a teacher, I pride myself in creating a classroom that centered around positive relationships and critical thinking skills for ALL students. Building connections with students is a time tested essential strategy to ensure academic success. When there is a positive relationship between the teacher and the students, the students become much more engaged in the learning that occurs in the classroom. Engagement leads to success.
