Student-Led Conferences

Fall SLCs are scheduled for Tuesday, November 26 from 3:00-7:00 PM and Wednesday, November 27 from 8:00-11:00 AM.  Students will complete the SLC Template for each class (available in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese), excluding Advisory.  Students who need guidance will out the SLC Template can use the SLC Handout Exemplar for inspiration.  Finally, our Video Productions class created a helpful how-to video so students understand the expectations around leading an SLC.

Students who are able to communicate in a language other than English should sign up to take the World Language Credit by Proficiency test.  Students can earn up to 4 high school credits based on their level of proficiency.

 

Octet Rule

We continued our study of Lewis Dot Structures by investigating the Octet Rule through the lens of double and triple bonds.  Students applied the HONC 1234 rule with their understanding of valence electrons (octet = eight electrons) to build molecules that share one or more bonds.  We worked through the Lesson 32 PowerPoint and then students used the Lewis Dot puzzle pieces from Lesson 31 to work through the Lesson 32 worksheet.
