IMPORTANT UPDATE: UNIT TEST 2
DEAR PARENTS AND STUDENTS:
This is Mr. Hatfield, your Biology teacher at Bullard. Students, you have an important Unit Test on Tuesday, Sept. 28th. Parents, I know you want to encourage your students, and you need timely updates to make your encouragement effective. So....here's another update!
A Study Guide was given out in class to students on Friday (Sept. 24th) to help them prepare for this test.
In addition, students are eligible to attend a Study Session on Monday afternoon, Sept. 27th, which will use the Study Guide to review the material with the instructor.
Because I have five sections of Biology, participation in the Study Session must be on a first-come, first-served basis and capped at 54 students. The Study Session will begin at 3:15 and last until at least 5:00. Students who attend will receive valuable feedback about the test, but probably the most valuable feedback on how to prepare has already been posted on the course blog, here:
Also, I remain concerned that some students and parents are still not able to access on-line grades and attendance via the district's new software. Some information regarding this was previously given on the course blog, here:
Please encourage your student to use the 'COPE' strategies posted on the blog to prepare for their test, particularly the completion of their Cornell Notes.
PLEASE BE AWARE THE STUDENTS WHOSE GRADES ARE BELOW-AVERAGE FOLLOWING THE SECOND TEST MAY BE ASSIGNED STUDY HALL AT LUNCH, AFTER SCHOOL OR ON SATURDAY, AS PER THE COURSE CONTRACT.
