Mr. Dave Luehrs
Hello Fallon Families!
During this school year, I am teaching a combination of Earth, Life, and Physical Sciences to our 6th-graders during periods 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6. We use our primary student/parent communication tool from "Canvas" as a means to move through each of our science lessons and learning objectives during distance-learning and beyond. Science teachers at Fallon are using "Amplify" for most science content and their carefully planned lessons and activities are uniquely suited to online access for all students. These lessons are developed in conjunction with UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science and they offer learning opportunities that are the very best I've seen, in full support of the NGSS. It's a phenomenal program and it is highly rigorous. (We piloted this program last year and all came away quite impressed.) Great timing given the unusual circumstances this year!
Thanks for checking in and let's make it a great year for Fallon Scientists!
Thanks for your support at home-- it's the teamwork in education that really makes a profound difference with many positive learning outcomes!
