Welcome to Mr. Curry's 6th Grade CORE Class.
This class will be a 4 period a day class for many of the students, Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. Since teachers teach 5 periods a day, one class will have me for only 1 period per day for Social Studies.
As a real essential part of this class, students will be challenged to submit their assignments, take tests and create presentations using technology. We provide parents and students alike with online access to their Gradebook , as well as an online version of the Weekly Assignment sheet. Mr. Curry also created online tutorials to support students who need additional assistance and for the independent workers who are ready to accelerate their learning. Integrating technology will provide students with the skills needed for 21st century learning and future jobs.
Those students without access to the internet at home will have priority in using the numerous classroom computers I have obtained for the class. We will also make printed copies of grade updates and assignment sheets for all students needing them.
We encourage you to visit our Parent's Page for more details.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at school at 408-923-1800 ext 4420.
Below is a video showing how we use cooperative learning to reinforce the standards based learning we do.
