Gifted Services/Course Placement For the 2018 2019 school year, we have set criteria for students in the Language Arts/Reading classes. At each grade level, students that meet this criteria will have the opportunity to be placed in the Cognitive Gifted Cluster. Placement in this cluster will be based up on the following criteria: Obtaining a composite score of 128 or higher These three areas of the Cogat Test will average into the composite score Verbal

Quantitative Non-Verbal Gifted Services/Course Placement If students do not meet the criteria for this class, it does not mean that they cannot take higher level classes in the future; this does not prevent them from taking accelerated courses once they are promoted to high school. These courses will cover the same state and local standards that the other ELA classes are required to cover; they will address those standards using different strategies and different assessments. Parents and students have the opportunity to decide prior to scheduling if they feel that this is the best placement. Once the school year begins, schedule changes will not be made to place students at a different level. Students placed in these classes will also be required to complete a summer reading program. Each grade level will Math Placement 6th Grade Determining placement into 6 th grade math will be based on the following criteria:

Identified as gifted in mathematics and/or high cognitive Performance on a math skills test Performance on an Algebra Readiness Test Students who meet 2 of the 3 criteria will be placed in Math 6A (accelerated), all other students into the Math 6 curriculum.

Public Speaking Whos teaching? Ms. Armentout (7th grade ELA Teacher) Whats the class all about? Public Speaking is a one semester elective course which introduces students to the basic elements of proper and effective public speaking skills. The course is designed to instill in students a sense of confidence as they communicate orally with and in front of other peers. Different types of speaking will be delivered in class with an emphasis on informative and demonstration speaking, audience breakdown, and speaking for special occasions. In addition, students perform dramatic readings, learn improve, and study several TED talks. Why should I take your class? Gaining confidence standing in front of peers in middle school is a HUGE fear of most. On Fridays, we play Noun Connector where students have to make up a story connecting the two random nouns. This is one example of making the students feel more comfortable in front of their peers. How do the students feel? It was fun and I really improved a skill I will need for the

rest of my life and no homework. A. Tarzinski This class helped me to get up in front of people and Teen Reads 7 and 8 Whos teaching? Mrs. Hughes Whats the class all about? This class was formed for students who LOVE to read the newest Young Adult literature and discuss it with other students who like to read. Why should I take this class? If you love to read, this is the class for you! What better way can you think of spending a period than sitting back, relaxing, and reading the newest YA literature on the market? We have one discussion a week, and we also do things like create fake social media accounts for characters and have a red carpet Academy Awards premiere party for the book trailers that we make at the end of the semester. You also never know when an actual author might come for a Skype visit. This class is a pass/fail class, and there is NO homework. How do the students feel about this class? Teen Reads is super funI hope you all have as much fun

as I did. All of the books are super good.Amelia Z. Mrs. Hughes is a very fun teacher and always makes you laugh! You should expect to read lots of books. They are always high action and very great. Bailee H. You should expect to have a lot of fun and a lot of reading. --Sydney L. Info Tech 1 Whos teaching? Mr. Kuhn Whats the class all about? Podcasting App Design Coding, Scratch Video Editing Why should I take this class? You get to learn how to shoot and edit your own videos!!! Check out what the students get to do in class! Info Tech 2 Whos teaching? Mr. Kuhn

Whats the class all about? Build your own website 3D Printing and Design Explore with HummingBird Robotics Rover Project Why should I take this class? You can design and program your own rover! Check out what the students get to do in class! Environmental Science Whos teaching? Mr. Koopman Whats the class all about? The course would be collaborative and hands-on as students will not only work with environmental concepts, but also with environmental factors within and round the school. Topics would include; ecosystems,

diversity and population, conservation and protection, sustainability and development, as well as human impact and more. Why should I take this class? Hands-on activities and learning Work outside Have a direct effect on the environment here at TMS How do the students feel about the class? This will be a new adventure here at TMS, so the feeling of excitement is high for the potential to complete big things. The class will combine learning and have a positive impact on our school and environment. Design Thinking 1 and 2 Whos teaching? Mr. Bonifas Whats the class all about? Using problem solving strategies to generate creative solutions to real world problems Why should I take this class?

Design Thinking is a hands-on class where students work in teams to generate creative solutions. This class is a pass/fail because the focus is on learning to be creative rather than grades. There is little to no homework for this class. How do the students feel about the class? I enjoyed being very creative and getting to make projects and solving problems. I liked that we always had a different group/partner for each project. Also, every day we were doing something different. I was able to problem solve better. The design lab and the ability to make whatever we wanted. How you got to brainstorm and come up with ideas from your own ideas that you thought of and then combine them with others ideas. I really enjoyed the freedom that we got to make mostly our own choices and that the class wasn't so structured and I really just liked getting up and moving after a long day of just sitting down and taking notes. I like being able to talk and discuss things with a group. In other classes you can't figure out a problem together and the whole atmosphere is different. I also love prototyping. I think its really fun to create things. How is Design Thinking II different than Design Thinking I? Design Thinking II will have

longer, more in-depth challenges that work with people both inside and STEM 8 Whos teaching? Mr. Bonifas Whats the class all about? STEM class is a hands-on class that uses the Engineering Design Process the create solution to real-world problems. Students will use their math and science skills along with technology to create these solutions. Why should I take this class? STEM helps students to see what an engineer does and how they solve problems. The class does several projects that different types of engineers ( such as mechanical, civil, and chemical) could work on. This class is pass/fail because the focus is on learning to be a better problem-solver rather than grades. This is a nontraditional class where students learn by doing hands-on projects.

There are no tests or quizzes in this class, rather teams are evaluated on how they work through the Engineering Design Process to generate possible solutions. How do the students feel about the class? I like that the class is hands-on and it is relaxed and easy to share ideas The projects are real-world projects that are fun and will help you later in life I like that there is no homework and we always work in teams Art I Whos teaching? Mrs. Brown Whats the class all about? 2D mediums (drawing and painting) 3D mediums (clay, paper Mache, assemblage, weaving) Exploring the elements of art and practicing studio habits Exploring your creative ideas Why should I take this class?
