Yaple-8: As of 4/15/15

Science: Students had an opportunity to discuss and debate the topic of GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) and have been assigned an argumentative essay. They have been given a series of arguments from a PBS Series called “Harvest of Fear” and the same rubric Mrs. Van Evra used for their first argumentative essay. I originally assigned the due date as Friday 4/17, but with Confirmation and the Play, I have decided to extend the turn in date to Monday 4/20. Students will be given class time on Friday to work on their essay and I will also be able to review genetics with some students before we start the next chapter.

REMINDER: BRING A SACK LUNCH AND DRINK FOR OUR FIELD TRIP THURSDAY
