Middle School Science

Science Teacher:   Mrs. Veronica Jordan           Email: vjordan@stcassianschool.org

The science curriculum merges concepts in physical, earth, and life science systems with hands-on experiments, discoveries and laboratory techniques. The curriculum equips students with the skills necessary to discover and analyze the intricacies of any branch of study, facilitate that discovery through critical thinking and discourse, and cultivate the passion to grow as emerging scientists and engineers. Students continuously engage in the STEM process -- observing, conjecturing, and experimenting-- through weekly teacher lectures, demonstrations or student-centered activities. At all grade levels, the science curriculum challenges students to maintain high science literacy by expressing their discoveries in various ways. By middle school, students write research papers and formal laboratory reports. Small group, one-on-one instruction and differentiated learning center activities assist in addressing the needs and challenges of students.
