My Presentation! Enjoy Your Time
In Earth Science! THINK REFLECT Ways in which Earth Science will literally save your life: THE STARRY NIGHT PROJECT (a.k.a family bonding time :P) (more like
how Earth Science
will become your
life :P) Here's some tips on how to succeed in Earth Science: Evidence is your best friend.
So is the ESRT :)
90% of Earth Science is following directions, so read and listen carefully!
Never look for a right answer! As long as you can prove it and back it up with evidence, it's acceptable!
Don't cram! Budget your time!
Study your notes EVERY NIGHT!
Start studying for the midterm and the regents from day one!
Check the blog, edmodo, and Ms. Susinno's site every day!
Never fall behind on labs.
Attend extra help!
Read the textbook carefully! You never know when Ms. Susinno might give a No Peekey regarding the homework! What Will I Be Discussing? WatchingEarth Science Come to Life: Helpful Techniques Used in Earth Science and Beyond: How Earth Science and Your Life Will Connect: In this presentation, I will inform you on how this class will change your view on not just the importance of Earth Science, but also how it will change your habits, work ethic,
studying skills, and your view on the
world around you (You'll also learn
how to become a superstar student). Most Memorable Lessons: At first this class may seem intimidating. However, you'll soon realize it's bunches of fun! Some of my most memorable lessons were:
The Earth is flat lesson: One day, Ms. Susinno will tell you the Earth is flat, and because she's your teacher and teachers are always right, you'll believe her. Well, plot twist, the Earth is round (it's not a circle, it's actually an oblate spheroid)! This lesson taught me that teachers are not always right! It taught me that unless they have proper evidence to back up their theories, they are not reliable answers.
The Climate Debate (a.k.a. my favorite project ever): The climate debate was definitely my most favorite project EVER. Getting up, arguing points, and having to provide evidence is not as scary as you think. In fact, it's so much fun (especially when you prove people wrong)! It taught me that using evidence is super important because I am not my own reliable source. Welcome to Earth Science! DISCUSS COLLABORATE EVIDENCE PROVE CREATIVITY HARD WORK How Will Your Knowledge of Earth Science Help You to Become a Better Citizen of the Planet? By learning about Earth's processes, you can change your daily habits to become a better citizen!
For example, when you learn the very important lesson of The Greenhouse Effect (GHE), you'll realize just how much humans affect the Earth itself. You then might decide to walk home more often (it'll make more sense when you learn about it!) Why do you think you might want to walk more after seeing the GHE diagram? You'll have to wait to find out! Earth Science is one of those special subjects that includes A LOT of visuals. From animations, to labs, to demos, to just walking outside, I guarantee you will witness what you learn.
Astronomy. Stars are visible all year round, yet, when we see them, do we think of the science behind the twinkling little lights coming from the sky? Well, after learning about the astronomy unit, I guarantee you that you will be able to go outside, look at the night sky, and name constellations (plus you can brag to all of your friends about it).
Other lessons that were very visual: rocks and minerals, energy, coastal processes, and almost every other unit. The Starry Night Project helped me realize how I could connect what we were learning in class to the world around me! Does our learning
in nature have a
special value? I believe that by connecting what we learn in the classroom to the outside world, we can understand it better. Not only this, but we learn how to not only sit in a classroom and take notes, but to also look for other ways to take in information (in this case, by connecting it to nature). Time budgeting: In Earth Science, time budgeting is a major factor. Basically, what I'm saying is if you wait to do your lab the day before it's due, it's not going to be easy (don't worry, this will never happen if you budget your time).
Procrastinating is strictly prohibited beyond this point. If you procrastinate, IT WILL CATCH UP TO YOU (especially when you're busy doing your homework in the middle of the night). Not only will it wear you out, but it will also reflect in your work.
Study skills: In all different subjects, there's different ways of studying. In this class, memorizing is definitely NOT the way to go. As Ms. Susinno always says, "Don't memorize, understand!" Practice questions are always useful and are really easy to access. Imagine having to do all of this in one night! Preposterous! If you budget your time, you'll find that your nights will be a breeze. Oh the memories... Proper use of evidence during the climate debate 2013. Go human factors, woo hoo! How This Class Will Teach You How to Think: THIS IS
VERY IMPORTANT! THINK! Never look for a correct answer! If you can PROVE it with the use of your brain, it's acceptable! But in order to do so, you must THINK! If you don't do any of this in this class, I can tell you right now, you will not succeed! THINKING IS KEY! Like I said, if you don't think, you won't succeed. This class has taught me HOW to think and how important it is. Sometimes, answers don't just jump right out at you. However, if you connect points and THINK, you can piece together a theory or answer.
There's one lab that I always have to think about when a question arises regarding that subject. The apparent path of the sun lab (the one with the little army dude :P). Whenever there is a question regarding that topic, I can never name a right answer. I first have to THINK about how the apparent path of the sun changes and why the angle changes as well. I'm forced to think. This idea doesn't just apply to this lab, in fact it applies for just about everything we do in this class. This lab taught me HOW to think. Will it do the same for you? You'll just have to wait to find out! I know this may sound ridiculous, but this class definitely taught me how to think. To be honest, I've never connected points, provided evidence, and thought like I did in Earth Science. It's definitely a technique I'll take with me beyond Earth Science and I hope you will too. (Tips Continued...) Any time you are confused, consult Ms. Susinno, a fellow classmate, edmodo, etc.
Be on time for class (I know this may be obvious, but the quicker you settle in, hand in your assignments, copy down homework, etc., the quicker you can get to work)!
Never memorize, understand!
Prepare for No Peekey's! If you can kind of predict what the next no peekey will be, prepare for it! You might just get yourself a B (bonus)!
Save up your HWP's! You never know when you're going to forget to do a homework!
Try for your best, and never settle for less!
After getting back a graded lab, be sure to put in your lab binder immediately! The last thing you want to be doing is searching for your labs the day of the regents! You'll learn how to find the warning signs of a tsunami and how to quickly and successfully save yourself and your family.
You'll learn how to read a weather map, which can save you from dangerous storms.
You'll learn to never look directly at the sun.
You'll learn where tornado valley is, an area in the U.S. that experiences many tornadoes.
You'll learn how to keep safe during an earthquake. Keep these tips in mind next time you go to the beach! The End! By: Krissy McCann Tips for labs:
consult edmodo for questions
KEEP IN LAB BINDER
Never fall behind
Make them pretty :) What a Proper Lab Write-Up Should Look Like: Unless told otherwise,
the vocabulary, discussion
questions, and conclusion
must be typed (see lab guidelines
for more tips for labs)! All of Ms. Susinno's Earth
Science students :P
