My name is Michael Emory, and I teach 8th Grade Earth Science at Woodland Middle School. The 2018-19 school year will be my 24th year in the education profession.
I received my B.A. degree from the University of Delaware and earned my M.Ed. from Wilmington College. Since 1998, I have attended the University of Idaho for continuing credits in Science, technology and education training.
My wife, Jennifer, is also a teacher, and I have two sons in the district. My hobbies include most outdoor recreational activities.Students in 8th grade Earth Science will use hands-on, lab experiences to investigate the role of energy in systems, the BIG IDEA linking science instruction in 6th through 8th grades. Students perform investigations in groups, developing collaborative and interpersonal communication skils. Concept information is presented in multiple formats to meet the strengths of kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learners. All assignments and supporting instructional materials are available on the student's Google Classroom folder.Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voice message at 208-667-5996. Starting September 27, I will be at Woodland with the Club 240 Afterschool Program until 4:00 pm.
What's Going On...
Students will begin the 2016-17 school year on September 6 with training and exercises to develop their scientific measurement skills applicable to the pursuit of STEM-related careers. They will work collaboratively to develop proficiency in and application of measurements while exploring concepts such as mass, volume, density, temperature, and surface area. A variety of materials will be used to explore these foundational concepts that will form the basis for further study throughout the year.
