Mr. Curkeet (MS Science)

About Me
I graduated from Fall River in 2003, and have been teaching science here since 2014.  I live in Columbus with my wife, two kids, and our dog.  I love coaching high school baseball and my son's youth basketball and baseball teams.  In my free time I try to play as much golf as possible.

Welcome to Science!  Please come to class with a positive attitude, and an open mind so we can all learn in a comfortable setting.

What to Bring:

Make sure you come to class prepared.  Every day you will need to bring: Pen, Pencil, Folder, Notebook, and Planner.  You will need to use your planner to leave class for locker trips, drinks, and bathroom breaks.  If you don’t have a planner, I will still write you a pass, but you will owe me 5 minutes at lunch.

Assignments/Small Projects (Formative Assessments) 30%

Assignments and small projects are important because they will allow me to make sure you understand concepts as we progress through the chapter.  I want you to have assignments done on time, but I will accept late work until a week before the end of the quarter with no penalty to your grade.  If there is a pattern of missing work, I may assign academic detention to get you caught up.

Tests/Quizzes/Large Projects (Summative Assessments) 70%

I want you to get into a good habit of studying for tests and quizzes.  If you fail a test or quiz in science, you are not stuck with that failing grade.  You will have to study, and record your studying process on the study slip to take a different version of the test on your own time.  If you don’t pass again, you will need to study a different way and retake it until you pass.  Hopefully you will learn that being prepared the first time is much easier.

Absences:

If you miss class you are responsible to find out what you missed, and to collect any assignments.

Chrome Book and Computer Usage:

Chrome books should only be used when it is necessary for an assignment, or when permission is granted.  They are an excellent tool for the classroom that should not be abused.

Other Technology:

As I’m sure you’ve heard there will be no cell phones, iPods, or tablets in the classroom.  If I see one in the classroom, I will take it until the end of the day.  No warnings.
