Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. William Weekly
I teach 6th grade science at Wilson & Young Medal of Honor Middle School. I graduated from UTPB in 2013 with a degree in management and am currently working on my master in professional education.
My approach to teaching:
I’m a firm believer that Science is fun and everyone is a born scientist –we’ve been testing our world from the moment we arrived. I also believe that the best way to learn is with laughter and fun and do the best I can to approach each class that way.
6th Grade Science
Bolinger & Weekly 2017-2018
➴ Students will treat their peers, the instructor, the classroom, and the equipment with respect
➴ Each student is expected to follow the school's code of conduct (No cell phone Etc.)
➴ Students will arrive in class and be seated before the bell rings. Tardies and absences will be handled in accordance with the school policy
➴ Students will come to class prepared and keep an organized notebook
It is our job, as teachers, to maintain an environment in which all students can learn comfortably. Therefore, disruptive, inappropriate, and disrespectful behaviors will not be tolerated. We hope to partner with you so all students will have a fun and successful year!
Notebooks: We will be doing interactive notebooks. They will be graded and will be used for test reviews (so they will be very important). This is why all students will need a spiral notebook (if they fill it, another may be required).
Textbooks: Students will be responsible for their text book, we recommend that they be kept in a ring binder (rings on the spine will work best). This is needed for the textbook so it will remain a usable resource throughout the year. The textbook will be used to support instruction, for homework, and review for tests (each unit has an assigned reading the student is expected to complete on their own).
Responsibility: It’s the student’s responsibility to bring text/notebooks daily.
Homework: When homework is assigned it will need to completed and returned on it’s assigned day for a grade. Late submissions will receive 10% deduction per day late (not accepted after 7 days late). Most homework questions will be drawn from the textbook with the answers submitted on a separate paper (the format will be provided).
Unit Tests/Projects 45%
Daily assignmets 20%
