In my classroom I will have high expectations for all of my students. I believe that every student can learn to their fullest potential if given the opportunity. My classes will incorporate technology in as many lessons as possible. I also believe strongly in the concept of inquiry based learning. Students should be actively engaged in their science classes. Students will be working hands on as often as possible. It is important that students begin to think like a scientist. This will require students to use their critical thinking skills. Through research, experimentation, labs, and other classroom activities, students will learn how to think like a scientist.
Here is a short list of expectations for my classroom.
1. Be on time
2. Be prepared
3. Respect your fellow students and your teacher
4. Follow directions (do as you are asked)
5. Have fun
