Course Description: This course is an opportunity for writers who have a piece of writing they want to share to receive feedback from their peers. Students wishing to take this workshop course will need to have 8-12 pages of an original story already created by the time the course starts. Each class day we will have a mini lesson on writing, and then the students and I will be heavily analyzing student story submissions. We will discuss the stories together, and provide feedback to help improve writing skills and strengthen the story. Students are expected to both submit a piece of their own work for feedback, and to provide feedback for others. Each author will be required to takes notes as their story is discussed and to listen quietly, and then at the end of all feedback there will be a chance for the authors to respond to anything said during the critique and to ask questions.

The most important thing for all students taking this course is to be constructive when giving feedback, and to keep an open mind toward feedback that is received. After each class session, Professor Conley will have a short meeting with the one or two students whose work was read that day to check in with them and go over their feedback.

Instructor: Christopher Martin, PhD

Course Description:

Modern sources of news and entertainment are cleverly designed to compel, persuade, sensationalize, and attract attention. The purpose of this class is twofold: to both teach students how to think critically about the information they encounter, as well as how to construct well-written arguments with appropriate, supporting source material. Few people in our society realize that the true benefit of studying history goes beyond the simple lessons of the past. Rather, by giving critical analysis to the interpretations of the past, students can themselves learn to identify and scrutinize sources of information, and form their own opinions with greater wisdom. 

Course Outline:

Day 1: Introduction and overview of syllabus and assignments Introductory probe into the scope and utility of History.

Days 2-5: Thinking Critically

Day 2: Historical and Ideological 

Day 3: Primary and Secondary Sources

Day 4: Causation, Contingency, and Complexity

Day 5: Active, Critical Reading

Days 6-8: Arguing Persuasively

Day 6: Historiography and Historians' Fallacies

Day 7: Thesis Statements, and Supporting an Argument

Day 8: The Catholic Theology of History

Over both semesters, we will cover a wide range of topics, including Structure of Matter, States of Matter, Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, Equilibrium, and Thermochemistry. We will also consider how Chemistry is important in our day-to-day life.

There will be three tracks through this class:

  1. Chemistry – This is the classic college preparatory Chemistry course that fits most students’ needs.

  2. Honors Chemistry – Students may earn extra credit by completing challenging assignments and earn the distinction of Honors Chemistry. This is designed for academically gifted students and for those who have a desire to complete more rigorous work. The extra credit is available to all students even if they are not attempting Honors Chemistry.

  3. General Chemistry – This option is a less-intense track the math is a bit easier, a few topics are skipped, and the required assignments are easier. This is designed for students who struggle, or those with limited time or desire. This option is only available by parent request. Requests must be made before we start chapter 4.

Course Outline:

  • Topic 1: Matter and Change (Element and Compounds, Mixtures, Chemical Reactions)

  • Topic 2: Scientific Measurement (Accuracy and Precision, Metric System, Density)

  • Topic 3: Atomic Structure (History of Atomic Thought, Models of the Atom, Electrons in the Atom)

  • Topic 4: Periodic Table (Organization, Classification of Elements, Periodic Trends)

  • Topic 5: Forming Compounds: Bonding (Ionic Bonding, Metallic Bonding, Covalent Bonding, Intermolecular Forces)

  • Topic 6: Chemical Names and Formulas (Ions and Ionic Compounds, Molecular Compounds, Acids and Bases, The Laws Governing Formulas and Names)

Course Materials and Technology:

1. Text: Chemistry, Wilbraham, Staley, Matta, Waterman (Prentice Hall, 2008) ISBN: 0-13-251210-6. (We recommend buying used. It can be purchased athttp://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0132512106/catholictreas-20.)

2. Computer with a microphone. (This is an interactive class microphones are mandatory.))

3. Scientific Calculator (I demo on a TI-30x iis)

4. Scanner or smartphone with Adobe Scan (or like) app that can scan multiple pages and save as a single PDF file.

Homework: Assignments include reading and a quiz with each chapter, unit tests, and a final exam. Most students will complete the weekly assignments in about 4 hours some students need more time. Most assignments are completed online some assignments will need to be hand-written, then scanned, and uploaded (as a PDF) for grading. Mrs. Dutton will be available to answer questions daily via the class discussion (forum). Mrs. Dutton will grade all assignments and give an overall grade for this course.

Course Materials: First Start French level 1 Student Edition, by Danielle L. Schultz, Memoria Press 2007, ISBN: 978-1-93095-365-9 (https://amzn.to/2rAC5Mm)

Homework: Learning a second language is demanding. Depending on your goals, a minimum of 30 minutes a day is recommended. To help the memorization of the vocabulary words and grammar rules, different exercises have been developed for this class. There are: recordings for the vocabulary words, or the lesson of the week, the student can listen and repeat what he hears to develop his speech quizzes on Moodle and the exercises from the Student book. Quizlet sets (always in progress) help him memorize the meaning of words, their grammatical gender, their spelling and conjugation of verbs. Each week, a unique assignment has been created by the teacher for grading purposes, except the week the students have a test.
