Welcome to Mrs. Taylor’s Web Page

It’s my goal to post helpful info,important reminders, and homework for ALL my classes on this page.



Homework


Your student should be maintaining a homework agenda, writing down HW at school. I do post HW and some important reminders daily on this web page so that HW can be confirmed, and also, so that absent students can obtain assignments. Thanks.

If your child has lower test scores, please encourage ACTIVE studying, not “looking it over”. This can dramatically increase performance. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of completing all homework thoughtfully…not rushing through it just to get it done. Thank you. Mrs. Taylor

 


Study Tips


Here are some of my favorite study tips–start early:

  • Turn the objectives or What you will learn into “Can I….” questions to check for understanding.
  • Always use Previewing Technique for reading assignments and any worksheets!
  • Preview workbook pages before reading the section and “take notes” by filling in the science workbook pages.
  • Use the 2/3,1/3 method for definitions (modeled in class)
  • Use index cards to create vocab study cards. Use them to make a written quiz for yourself; First put word side up and write the definitions. Then put definitions side up and retest the opposite way.

Gr 7 Sci — HW for tonight is the Sect 3-4 Enrich: Genetic Code. Please use loose leaf and do a neat job. Pay close attention to the what the question is telling you to do. If you were absent or want a refresher , use the links and view the videos we watched. Content outlines for the chapter were given today. Emphasis is mostly sections 2 & 3 but from section one must still know the 3 parts of the cell cycle and purpose of each, the idea that a cell plate forms in cytokinesis for plants but not for animals, the comparison of mitosis and meiosis ( see your venn diagram).
