Rule #1:Make Good Decisions Should we need any more?
Make Good Decisions• All our resources are on GoogleSites: is.gd/ChemTaylor• We will use Quia a lot for formative, content-checking work.• All tasks are reported in PowerSchool.• Powerschool tasks have dates, which you can subscribe to in iCal.• Most work will be collected on Turnitin.com or through blogposts.• Use APA for referencing in ALL tasks.• My due dates are almost always 9pm. You need to get to bed.• We use a lot of class time for assignments. Make good use of it.• If you miss class, come as soon as possible to catch up.• I’m always available to help.• Be responsible and safe on social media. Protect your online reputation.• Treat yourself, our working environment and others with respect.• Work safely. Always ask if you are unsure.

Always ask if you are unsure about a task or instruction.10.Dispose of all chemicals and used materials carefully.
Work Mode Use only the apps required for the task at hand.Work efficiently inclass, so that yourown time is your own! We’ll use them sometimes… We will use technology a lot in our class, including laptops, dataloggers and smartphones. Please come charged and prepared.Laptops Closed Give your full attention to the task, teacher or your group.

These are essential, yet are your opportunity to learn from your mistakes.These include Quia quizzes, class discussions & problems. All graded tasks – both summativeand formative – are entered in Powerschool and are used in Learning Attitudes assessment.

Our first mission: Science Show! Hi Grade 9 Chemistry Students, Our KA and BBP students are investigating water and its changes, properties and uses. They would love for you to show them some fun demonstrations of how water changes from a solid to a liquid to a gas. We need the demonstration to last 20 minutes and be repeated—the more colorful and dramatic, the better! Do you think you can help? Many Thanks, Mrs. Born and Mrs. WhiteCanadian Academy inspires students to inquire,reflect and choose to compassionatelyimpact the world throughout their lives.
