Lots of great stuff happening this week in Science and at Cathedral High School. Here’s a recap..
Students are practicing using the Scientific Method by devising experiments to test the strength of toilet paper -or- the absorbency of paper towels, they’ve come up with some pretty creative ideas.
We’ll also start covering what it means to be “Alive” this week and will soon be moving on to Unit 2… Biochem!
We’re working on 6.4 on our websites which is all about good training regimens and the principles that dictate what a good training program is.
Meet The Teacher Night!
We’ll be welcoming our students’ parents into our classrooms this Thursday so they can meet the teachers and see what their student is in for this school year!
Beat Ben Davis!
Our fall sports are off and running with Soccer and Tennis already starting matches. Volleyball kicks off this week as well as our Cathedral Fighting Irish Football team who looks to topple nationally ranked Ben Davis on Friday night!
I know, I know! Only one week to go! Might as well start the posting now to give you a little bit of what you’ve been missing.
In case you were not aware, this year I’ll be teaching Honors Biology again and…
No More Chemistry!
But fear not,I’ll still leave up all of my documents, keys, and notes for my former academic chemistry class (just for you XBio 13-14).
Instead of chemistry however, this year we are embarking on a new frontier of education here at Cathedral High School with the very first course of
Sports, Exercise, & Health Science!
If you have the privilege of partaking in this standard level IB course with me I guarantee it’ll be like no class you’ve had before. I have worked tirelessly this summer to prepare the course content for you. I will be incorporating best practices from IB, STEM, Tim Elmore, and my own masters program in the same course work. It will be a class based on experiential learning, problem solving, and research. We’ll talk more on that as the day draws near, but if you’re interested in learning more about this course, use the tab on top of this page of click here. In the meantime, enjoy your last week of freedom.
Get outside and enjoy it while you still can!
