High School Teachers

Do you teach 9th-12th grade? If so, say hello and connect with other High School educators. Feel free to share where you are from, what grade level(s) and subjects you teach, and any exciting projects you did with your students this year or fun plans you have for your classes next year. :)

Studing?

What classes do you study for (as in need to study to get a good grade) and what is your grade level(as in 9th grade)(we should have a pole option for forums).

Does anybody else have summer homework?

Is it not the most ridiculous thing?! I have to read 2 (count 'em - two) books and do a book report on each, one of which includes making maps, graphs, and a load of other stuff.To me, summer is supposed to be a break. Like, Christmas break, or Thanksgiving break, where there shouldn't be any homework given.And what's even more stupid (but slightly funny in a way) is that I'm going into 9th grade. All the teachers and counselors were saying how much stress you're going through, and then they make us do all this homework, which is major grade, be due on the first day of school?I'm not in AP classes either. Just 9th grade gifted! It's crazy!Geez! Shouldn't there be a law against this?

Introduce Yourself

Hey everyone! Welcome to the group & thanks for joining! Take this opportunity to introduce yourselves, what grade you're in, what classes you take, school stuff, whatever else you want, etc. I'm Mark. I'm currently in 9th grade. I went to a Catholic boys' school for the first semester this year, but starting Monday, I'll be going to the public school closer to home. For the first semester, I took Biology Honors, Geometry Honors, World Lit Honors, World History Honors, Technology, and Spanish I. My favorite class this year BY FAR was Geometry.

What is a good laptop for around $500 USD or less? Answered

I am going to get a laptop in a few months and I would like one for around $500 or less. I could go over $500 to about $550. I would also like one with Windows. I mainly surf the internet but I also might need to edit videos and type papers for school (I'm going into 9th grade). Having a CD/DVD drive, at least two USB ports, and at least an 80 gigabyte hard drive is a must.

Wish Me Luck!

I'm applying for Tacoma School of the Arts. It's a huge deal. I've got to do interviews, auditions, make a portfolio, get letters of recommendation, and fill out a bunch of forms. I'm going for Filmmaking and Visual Arts. A lot of people have said I should apply, including the DIRECTOR of the school. I won't be here for a few days because I've still got to: A) Create a still life of three common objects, with statement.B) Create a two minute demo of one of my films, with statement.C) Select a piece that represents my best work of 8th or 9th grade from each of these:EnglishScienceHistoryMathematicsForeign LanguageAll this is due tuesday, when I go to my audition. Who knows what I'll have to do there, one kid said you have to do a 30 second quick draw in front of judges. Only 20% out of district applicants (me) make it in, so it's a bloody battle for domination. My Stress-O-Meter is off the charts.

Spanish or French | Intro to Metalworking or Intro to Engineering and Tech.?

Ok, so it's that time of the year - picking 9th grade courses. I'm signing up for all gifted (higher than honors) academic classes, but am stuck on my electives.To get into universities and colleges in Georgia, I have to take 2 sequential years of either French or Spanish. My mom says Spanish is easier, like I'm sure most people would. I don't really care about speaking fluently in either language; I just need to go to college.What would you say would be the easiest to get through?So, I guess all of y'all know that I aspire to go into the mechanical engineering field. High school is a good place to start out, but I've come upon another bump in the road: Should I go with the metalworking classes, or the engineering (and technology) ones?I've always wanted to be able to weld, and I'm sure that's a major skill when it comes to engineering. Classes that my future school offers include Intro to Metalworking, Arc Welding, GMAW and GTAW (which I won't take), Intro to Milling (which includes using a lathe and a CNC machine), and a sheet metal class. The engineering class covers things like CAD, CAM, CNC, robotics, audio and visual productions, and other technology things.I think the metalworking would be best for me - I'm more of a hands-on person; i.e., I like tangent things, not doing "theoretical" things on a computer, though I know all of the CAD stuff would be very useful.I'd like to take all of it if I could, but that's only possible by going to summer school (which costs $180 per class).Any help would be appreciated!
