Today I gave the students time to complete their work from this week. We also prepped our ISN for the next few weeks since we will be bouncing around between subject matter (the Stanford Groupwork Tasks assigned by our District Office and the NGSS Standards for 7th grade Integrated Science). I also conferenced with students during class to discuss the quality of their recent lab submissions as well as to provide verbal feedback and guidance for grade improvement.
Since we had our assembly today (as well as a minimum day schedule), students missed their 2nd period class and most of 3rd period. I also had many students missing from 6th and 7th periods since they were in the performance during the 2nd assembly. For this reason, I did not begin the lab I had scheduled for today. We will begin Lab 14 tomorrow.
