Today we’re going to begin studying Gas Laws… (and that doesn’t mean the rules on Dutch Oven or letting one go in a crowded elevator).
We’re going to try some new classroom techniques for this final unit and create an “Open” classroom. Below are the expectations of you the student and of me the teacher.
- You are encouraged to collaborate (share) ideas, information, and how to complete problems with fellow classmates. This means sharing information, not giving answers. The point of collaboration is to better understand the material ourselves and be of service to a colleague. The only thing you may not share are the puzzle pieces; they must be received individually and documented by the instructor.
- If you are sharing a resource digitally on the blog or Google Doc you should use your first initial and last name to identify you. Posing as another student is considered fraudulent and does not follow the mission of the school. Any student posing as a colleague will face loss of points and other possible disciplinary actions.
- You are tasked with completing 10 topics before you are permitted to attempt the final test. For each topic you complete, you will receive a piece of the puzzle that you are literally and figuratively completing during this unit. You may work at your own pace provided you meet the deadlines set by the teacher.
- Since you will be permitted to use the internet and technology as you see fit, you may come across material that is inappropriate for a high school. When this occurs, close your iPad and raise your hand. Do not draw attention to yourself or share the text or images with others.
- You are permitted to move about the room as needed to complete tasks and collaborate with colleagues. But in a working environment you must respect the workspace and work ethics of those colleagues by not becoming a distraction.
Failure to follow these values will result in a deduction of points from your Unit 10 score.

- Be of service to my students by providing a framework digitally and within the classroom to allow for free flow of ideas and learning.
- Provide guiding questions to show students direction they should look to complete their sections.
- Be available for mentoring and guidance through challenging material.
As you complete each section you will be asked a set of questions to prove your knowledge of the subject. You must score a 100% to receive your piece of the puzzle then move on to the next section. You are permitted to attempt these questions as many times as needed to receive a score of 100%. You will only lose points by failing to follow the values listed above. You can receive extra consideration for extra points or returning lost points by helping fellow students or providing useful sources for fellow students.
