Welcome!

The purpose of this blog is to share insights into educational issues affecting Jerome Middle School. These could be new teaching strategies; new ways of grading; new ways of holding students accountable; new ways of getting students involved in their learning; or even new ways of getting parents more involved in the events at school. I hope that these posts will help answer some questions about happenings at JMS!

The Brain

6th Grade Science classes have begun to look like laboratories of Mad Scientists. The shelves are covered with brains of multiple shapes and sizes. There are cake brains, brain posters, brain Jello, clay brains, and even cookie brains. Students completed the brains as part of demonstrating their learning of the different parts and functions of the brain. One student was creative in his presentation of learning - he wrote and performed a song all about the brain. Here is a short video clip of the song, and a picture of the music.
