By the end of the week, you should have finished “The Landlady” and “Skin” and be able to complete a triple Venn diagram comparing and contrasting all three stories of Dahl.

Mr. Ian Stewart’s Weekly Blog – Psychology (Aug 14-18)

Good Morning Students and Parents,

  1. Questions that I expect that students are now able to address thoughtfully and correctly.
    • What is psychology?
    • Why is it such a challenge to study the mind as opposed to studying the brain?
    • For a survey to generate scientifically useful data, what things must be true about that survey?
    • Explain what is meant by the term “representative sample”. Give an example of a survey where the sample is NOT representative of the population.
    • What are some difficulties involved in running psychological experiments when one is trying to learn about the psychology of children?
  2. Where we are going this week . . .
    • Chapter 1 – Sections 3 and 4
    • Chapter 2 in its entirety (many of these issues have already been addressed in class).

You should not be entirely surprised if you have a brief “surprise” quiz mid week just to make sure that you are picking up what I want you to be picking up. Please see me during break or lunch Tuesday or Wednesday if you need to have a brief chat about how things are going.

Physical Education August 14-18, 2017


During this week, the students will work on developing the following fundamental skills of BASKETBALL: passing, dribbling, blocking, and shooting. Students will put this knowledge to test in games. During the week, the students will also have a physical conditioning.



I would like to remind you that all students need to be dressed appropriately for the days that they have P.E. class. Students should refrain from using the following:

–  Dresses for the girls

–  Jeans (shorts or pants)

–  Crocks

–  Sandals

–  Boots



In order to participate in class activities and receive full credit for the class, students need to wear appropriate clothing for P.E. class.



We will use the word RESPECT to set the main goals for the year.

Right to Learn – Every child has this right to be educated!

Effort – Win or lose, trying is the most important trait.

Safety – The number one priority each and every day!

Purpose – Understanding how the activity can benefit you.

Enthusiasm – Positive energy creates a positive environment!

Challenge – Challenge yourself to improve each day.

Trust/Teamwork – Work with and trust others, the result can be amazing!



Have fun!

Candy, food, and/or gum – out of sight, out of mind!

Positive attitude!

Remain in supervised areas all the time!

Optional Materials for Class:  Bug Spray, hat and Sunscreen.

Art Aug. 14 to Aug. 18


elements-and-principles-1229805285530990-1-thumbnail-49126085_origStudents will be reviewing Principles and Elements of Art through activities. They will first receive information describing characteristics of each element, and later create an example of each element or principle in their sketchbook. First they will practice using line, once they have finished they will create a color wheel using coloring pencils.

Students are required to bring their sketchbooks ASAP. Sketchbooks can be purchased at school or at any school supply store. Sketchbooks are essential for student’s organization; they are used to store and keep track of their ideas, homework, notes, and evaluations. I strongly encourage students to take care of their sketchbooks in order for them to use them for more than one school year.

Students may use the following link for interactive online activities with Elements and principles of art.


Mr. Stewart’s Homework for Friday (Psychology)

Design a psychological experiment to answer the following question:

Which of the following is better at improving the academic performance of second grade students . . .

(a) using rewards and positive reinforcements.

(b) using negative consequences (punishments).

IN ADDITION, your experimental design should contain a deliberate flaw . . . you must either include a mistake in your experimental design that would make the results unreliable or you must deliberately include a design element that would make your experiment unethical (morally wrong).

You may be called on to share your design to see if your classmates are able to identify the error that you have deliberately included in your experiment.
