Since history is always in the making students will tie in what they already know about the founding of the United States of America to the present day.
This class will build upon each student’s strength. To that end, students will have the opportunity to use their preferential learning style(s) through this course (e.g. visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, etc.).
Classes are tailored for the needs of each student. Individual attention will be given.
Economics / US Government
This course focuses on The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution and The NH Constitution. Each historical document ties directly into the 21st Century U.S. Culture and the Global Economy. Economics is directly affected by Federal, State and Local Laws. Students are encouraged to take a more active role in voting, participating in local town meetings and politics. Current events are followed and discussed to reveal their impact(s) on Freedoms being attacked by current lobbyists and special interest groups.
Chemistry with Lab
Welcome to the wild world of Chemistry! Chemistry fascinating to learn and easy to master when you learn the basic tools. Learning chemistry is a dream if you keep up with the assignments and ask for help when you need it As with all skill mastery, practice is the secret. If you “attend class” and do the work, you will succeed.
Your text will be Zumdahl “Introductory Chemistry A Foundation.” Although we do not have a laboratory we will be doing four extended experiments.
For this class you will need your book, a simple calculator, a 3 ring notebook, a 1/4 inch graph paper comp book, a dry erase marker, and a pencil. Occasionally I will ask that you bring some kitchen type items like ammonia.
We meet for three hours once/week for 13 -15 weeks. I schedule help sessions when needed. Your assignment will usually include reading a chapter, surveying the next chapter, a lab report and a quiz/test.
The fun is being able to “fly the plane.” Once you have learned the fundamentals of chemistry language, chemistry units, chemical reactions (fun), and predicting products you will enjoy applying this scaffold to many areas of your life.
Math Phobia is real and many of us suffer from it. We will strive to work with you as you overcome your fears and help you to see it in a whole new light. Because our classes are small you will get the individual attention you need to understand Algebra and succeed in this subject.
To be successful in education students need to be able to write a proper essay, as well as be exposed to variety of literature. With this in mind we have developed our English classes with a focus on College Writing & Literature, both American and World Lit.
