Another New Class: CT Physical Science

September 21, 2011

Building on success in a new class (CT Applied Science) last year CT (Cooperative Teaching) Physical Science pairs a highly qualified subject teacher, Mr. Klein, with a instructional strategist, Mrs. Bachmann.  In this class students that would otherwise struggle in a more formal classroom receive more 1-on-1 instruction.  Also Mrs. Bachmann ensures that the content delivered is appropriate for the various learning styles students possess.  In CT Physical Science areas covered are the same as in Physical Science.  First semester is spent focusing on chemistry while second semester is used to focus on physics phenomena.

In the above picture students are exploring the scientific method.  They had to determine both dependent and independent variables by determining the effect soap solutions have on how much water can stay on a penny.
