Brief Description of the Site:
Mary Poarch teaches 7th grade science in San Antonio, Texas. Her Web site is a resource for students and parents where assignments and important information are accessible at all times.
How to use the site:
Students and parents use this well-organized site to learn about the 7th grade science curriculum, the teacher's expectations, find assignments, and access links to supporting Web sites recommended by Mrs. Poarch. Parents and visiting teachers will appreciate the research area where Mrs. Poarch explains the research base for the curriculum. An excellent feature is a link to an online version of the textbook. Each student and parent receives a password that enables them to access the full textbook from any Internet-connected computer. During the school year, tutorials and reviews for every topic covered in class are also posted.
