Welcome to 6th and 7th Grade Science!
I am Mrs. Howell. I received my teacher training at the University of Arizona, and was an 8th Science teacher in Tucson and Tempe. Moving to California, I worked for FCUSD as a substitute teacher for 10 years, teaching elementary, middle school and high school. I started teaching at Mitchell in October of 2016. This is my third full year as a Science teacher at Mitchell.
The IB MYP curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents.(1) Please don't hesitate to explore Managebac (IB's grading system) with your student. Moreover, feel free to email me with questions on how IB MYP is implemented in Science.
We are adopting TCi as our curriculum for Science. Most work is done online, but a textbook is still available as a resource. Your student will have a textbook to keep at home.
School supplies needed for Science:
Composition notebook (NOT spiral) - available at Wal-Mart, Target, Office Depot, Staples for 50 cents
Pencils - Ticonderoga has the best quality
Please plan to attend back to School Night on August 22, from 6-8pm.
