7th and 8th Grade Science Classroom Syllabus


Teacher: Mrs. Erin-Leigh Glab Room: M14 Office Hours: Last 30 minutes of lunch


email: erin.glab@cojowa.edu.co Parent/Teacher Conference: Please contact MS Office

Classroom website: http://eringlab.weebly.com/


Class Curriculum: We will be using the Next Generation Science Standards to guide our study of the following units:





Fall Semester
  • Cell Biology

  • Asexual & Sexual Reproduction (Cellular reproduction only)

  • Heredity & Genetics


Spring Semester
  • Evolution of Organisms/Geologic Time Scale

  • Classification of Organisms

  • Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body

  • Sci Method/Lab skills

Required Materials: Students will need the following materials EVERY DAY.

  • Your textbook!

  • Blue or Black PEN, a sharpened PENCIL, a RED grading pen, and a highlighter.


  • Your Science Interactive Notebook

  • We will also be doing projects a lot in class… so it will be helpful if you have colored pencils or markers.


Class Expectations

  • REACHES (evaluated by Class Dojo)


    • Responsibility: Bring all class materials with you each day. Be on time and stay-on task. Do your homework and come ready to learn!

    • Empathy: Respect others’ opinions and ideas in class, especially during presentations.

    • Assertion: Speak up against bullying others. If you don’t understand something in class, ask!

    • Cooperation: Consider your classmates as your team. Work together, each completing his/her fair share of the work.

    • Honesty: Do your own work. “Copying” is not the same as “helping!”

    • Excellence: Give your BEST effort, even if you don’t totally understand something.

    • Self-Control: Stay in your seat. Raise your hand before speaking. Keep your hands and materials to yourself.


Behavior Consequences

  • 1st intervention: Verbal call of attention (-1 point on Class Dojo)

  • 2nd intervention: Name on board (-2 points on Class Dojo)

  • 3rd intervention: Name with check): (-3 points on Class Dojo) + 15 min. Lunch Detention cleaning tables

  • 4th intervention: (-4 points on Class Dojo) ALL of the above + immediate referral to Principal.


Grading Policy

  • For each unit, your grade will be calculated as follows:

  • 25% Tests

  • 25% Interactive Notebooks

  • 20% Projects

  • 20% Quick Labs


  • 10% Weekly Quizzes



  • We will follow COJOWA’s grading system

  • 90%-100% = A

  • 80%-89% = B

  • 70%-79% = C

  • 69% and under = F




You will also receive a grade for scientific inquiry this year. This grade will reflect your lab skills and lab report writing.
The grade will be calculated as follows:

  • Lab Skills (generation of hypothesis, measurement, proper use of materials, cooperation with lab group, lab behavior) = 50%

  • Formal Lab Reports = 50%





Grading Marks

All homework assignments are graded out of 10 points using a basic rubric:

  • - If an assignment is completed, the minimum grade is a 7/10 (70% C) or “check minus.”

  • If the assignment is completed and you demonstrated some understanding of the concept/standard, you will receive a 8/10 (80% B) or “check.”

  • + If you demonstrated concept mastery, you will receive a 9/10 (100% A), or “check plus.”






Homework Policy

  • Homework will be assigned on a regular basis.


  • Students will correct HW at the beginning of each class period. If a student does not complete his/her HW, he/she will have to attend remedials that SAME DAY in order to make up the work.

  • Students will be given one “Late HW Pass” per quarter. This pass does not excuse homework, but it allows student to turn in HW one day late for full credit, without attending remedials.

  • In order to use a late pass, student must staple his/her pass to the HW assignment.



Interactive Notebooks


  • This year, we will be using interactive notebooks to record and organize all of our learning.

  • We will begin each class by recording the Learning Goal of the Day.

  • You will use your notebook to record notes, vocabulary, etc. during the class.

  • At the end of the class, you will summarize what you learned that day in 2-3 sentences. This is your exit ticket!

  • You will also be given a 3 question mini-quiz to “check yourself” and your learning for the day.

  • Any hand-outs, worksheets, or projects that you do will be attached to the inside of your interactive notebook.

  • You will receive a weekly check grade based on completion, neatness, and organization. These weekly checks will make up 25% of your total grade.


Absent Work Policy

  • Absent homework will only be accepted for QUALIFIED absences (you were sick, injured, run over by a wild elephant…)

  • ASK THREE, THEN ME…. This means ask 3 friends what you missed. If you’re still unclear as to what you missed, check the calendar on-line, then come and ask me.

  • Pick up any class handouts or worksheets you missed from the ABSENT HANDOUTS FOLDERS, located near the door.

  • You have one week to make up any work you missed- TURN IN ALL ABSENT WORK DURING OFFICE HOURS. Make sure you write the word “ABSENT” at the top of your paper and schedule an appointment with me using the website.

  • Lab Make-ups: If you miss a lab, you will need to make-up the lab during TUESDAY LUNCH. Ms. Luz will be in the lab to help you, but you need to let her know in advance that you will be coming. No make-ups will given after the first Tuesday following the lab.

  • Test or Quiz Make-ups: If you are absent the day of a test/quiz, you will need to make-up the test during the next available remedial hour. It is your responsibility to make an appointment using the class website to make-up a test. If you miss this test make-up opportunity, you are choosing to take an F as your grade.



Lab Work

  • Labs will be conducted on a weekly basis on MONDAYS. It is VERY important that you do not miss labs on Mondays!

  • Labs will fall under two categories: Quick Labs (Groups) or Exploratory Labs (Individual Formal Lab Reports)

  • Quick Labs

    • Part of the Unit Grade (20%)

    • Completed as a group, turned in as a group, graded as a group. I will only collect ONE person’s lab per group and this person will be selected randomly. Make sure that everyone is participating equally!

    • Groups will be composed of 3 students and will be assigned by Mrs. Glab

    • Group Roles: Each quarter (bimester), each person will have a different role.

      • Director: Reads procedures for lab and keeps group on-task. The Director is responsible for turning in the completed lab at the end of the period.

      • Material Manager: Obtains and returns materials for lab. The material manager is the ONLY person permitted to leave the lab station.

      • Clean-Up Consultant: Delegates cleaning jobs to group members and is responsible for making sure your lab table is left clean for the next class.

Clean up duties (to be shared by all members in your group):

NOTE: Your lab group will be dismissed from lab when you have completed the following:

        • Returned all glassware (beakers, graduated cylinders, etc.) CLEAN to the center of your lab table.

        • Returned all other lab materials to where you originally found it when you entered the lab.

        • Wiped down your lab table with a wet paper towel.

        • Put all of your stools upside down on the lab table.

        • Picked up all of your trash on the lab table and on the floor.

  • Individual Formal Lab Reports

    • Part of Scientific Inquiry Grade (50%)

    • Students work together to record data in interactive notebook (individually) during class.

    • Lab experimental data will be checked at the end of the period on lab days. Students are encouraged to work as a team in the data collection process.

    • Lab results and conclusions will be collected through the online server called, “Turnitin.com.” Students will receive a username and password to access this website.

    • Each student is responsible for writing his/her own individual data, results, and conclusions.

    • Lab Reports will be assessed using peer evaluation and teacher evaluation.


QUICK LAB RUBRIC 7th and 8th Grade Science, COJOWA

  • Remember, your lab work is worth 20% of your grade. That means that you need to take your lab experience VERY SERIOUSLY!

  • Quick Labs will be graded using the following rubric. Before you turn in a lab, be sure to check this rubric to make sure you have everything completed.
