 My name is Angela Jackson and I am very excited about teaching in the Collierville Municipal School System! This is the best school system in the world and I am so proud to be a part of it! This is my 26th year of teaching middle school and I am so glad to continue to be a Dragon! I will be teaching your child Science this year and have no doubt that we are going to have a very successful and productive year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns at ajackson@colliervilleschools.org

Course Description: During the school year students will be investigating the areas of physical science, life science and earth science. We will also engage in the engineering and design process, energy transfer, energy conservation, circulation in earth's air and oceans, weather and climate, interactions of living things, earth's biomes and ecosystems, earth's resources and the human impact on our environment. During the course of this school year students will:
  • ask questions and define problems
  •  analyze and interpret data
  • plan and carry out investigations
  • construct explanations and design solutions
  • develop and use models
  • obtain, evaluate and communicate information
  • engage in argument from evidence
 
Grades are determined using the following school-wide scale:
  • Homework 5%
  • Classwork 20%
  • Quizzes/Labs 30%
  • Tests/Projects 45%
 
Students will review lab safety rules the first two weeks of school and will need a lab safety contract signed by a parent or guardian before they can participate in lab investigations.
 
I will communicate via remind text messages and weekly emails of our itinerary. The weekly itinerary will also be posted in the classroom for the students to see each day.
 
Digital Textbook: Our textbook is an online app that students access via their iPads using the ThinklinkCentral app within Classlink.
