Setting The Standards

Today's meeting had to be shorter than normal. We had a lot of items to discuss outside of the project. We are also a little tired from parent conferences from the previous evening. We have another parent conference tomorrow. With this in mind, we just quickly covered the standards we thought students needed the most from our individual content area.

1. Interpret and Communicate - Interpreting is the process of recognizing patterns in collected data by making inferences, predictions, or conclusions. Communicating is the process of describing, recording, and reporting experimental procedures and results to others. Communication may be oral, written, or mathematical and includes organizing ideas, using appropriate vocabulary, graphs, other visual representations, and mathematical equations.
2. The Interdependence of Organisms - Interrelationships and interactions between and among organisms in an environment is the interdependence of organisms. This includes biotic factors as well as the cooperation and competition of organisms and population dynamics.

Demonstrate the use of mental maps to organize information about people, places, and environments in a spatial context.
2. Explain how culture and experience influence people's perceptions of places and regions and how these perceptions change over time.

Identify the main idea and supporting details by producing summaries of text.
Draw inferences such as conclusions, generalizations, and predictions, and support them with text evidence and personal experience.

Algebra I
1. Calculate the slope of a line using a graph, an equation, two points or a set of data points
Develop the equation of a line and graph linear relationships given the following: slope and y-intercept, slope and one point on the line, two points on the line, x-intercept and y-intercept, a set of data points.

You might be curious to know who the people are that I am working with to create the project.
My team mates are Deann, the science instructor; Ben, the English teacher; Mary, the English teacher for special education; and Debra, social studies.
