Hello, Welcome to Northeast Middle School. My name is Mr. Shenefield. I will be your teacher for 8th science. I received a Bachelors of Science from Western Michigan University. Also, I have earned a Masters in Educational Technology, “Teaching and Learning with Technology” from Michigan State. I was born in Kalamazoo on April 14th, 1971, but I was raised on Rose lake in Coldwater, Michigan. During college I married my high school sweetheart, Jill, in 1993. We have four wonderful kids, Lily, Ally, Will and Phil.
8th grade is an Integrated Science course. Integrated Science deals with all science fields. We currently use IQWST as part of our curriculum. Students investigate questions relevant to their lives by conducting investigations; collecting and analyzing data; developing and using models to explain phenomena, and engaging in argument from evidence, all in a literacy and discourse-rich environment.
