Upon getting information about an upcoming school science fair and the need to consider a topic of interest, many students will typically have no idea where to get started. While the science fair is typically a common occurrence in any school at any grade level, there are different types of topics that should be taken a look at depending on the age of the student. After first taking a look at the many different categories of science projects, you will be able to locate a suitable choice of topic to take to the next level.There is a wide variety of categories that fall under the types of science projects that can be chosen for a school science fair. These include biology, chemistry, physics, microbiology, biochemistry, medicine, environmental, mathematics, engineering, and earth science. While you may not have yet learned very much in any of these categories, don’t be afraid to see what each one entails. Taking a good look at your interests will allow you to focus on the right direction to take.Many resources are also available for those who are unsure as to the topic they are wanting to use to create their science projects. If you take a look at the topics that fall under the biology category, you will likely notice that there are topics that deal with plants, animals, and humans. For those who are in 2nd grade or 3rd grade, an interesting topic may be to determine if ants are picky over what type of food they eat. While this topic might not be of interest to an 8th grader, it is certainly something in the biology category that an elementary school student would enjoy.Along with the biology category, a high school student may want to take a look at diffusion and osmosis in animal cells as this would be a more appropriate topic for the grade level. A student in 6th grade would be more advanced than an elementary school student, but not as advanced as a high school student. At this middle school grade level, a topic of how pH levels effect the lifespan of a tadpole may be of interest.Whichever resource is used to locate a topic for science projects, it is always a good idea to consider the grade level of the student prior to making a selection. It is always assumed to be best to have a project at an appropriate level in order to keep the attention of the student and provide a fun and enjoyable learning experience.
Have you tried to resolve your disagreements with special education personnel to no avail? Have you filed for a special education due process for your child with autism or a learning disability? Would you like to try and come to an agreement before the due process hearing? This article will discuss a new resolution process that was added, when IDEA was reauthorized in 2004. You can use this process to try and resolve your special education disputes before the due process hearing.A resolution meeting must be held within 15 calendar days, of the school district receiving notice, of a due process complaint. The resolution meeting is mandatory for you. Both parties, the school district and the parent can agree in writing to waive the resolution session, or to agree to go to mediation.There are pros and cons to the resolution meeting. Pro’s are: A. It is an additional opportunity to talk the issues over. B. It is less adversarial than a due process hearing. C. The school district can only have their attorney attend, if you bring an attorney. D. An advocate may go with you to the resolution session. E. The school district must send a person who has decision making power. F. The meeting may result in an agreement that is legally binding. G. The resolution may be voided within 3 business days of the agreement being made. This may make school personnel more willing to try and reach an agreement with you.The Cons of the resolution meeting are: A. The district may try and use the resolution meeting to see what your evidence is. B. No guarantee that a written agreement will be reached. C. Sometimes things are so adversarial, that another chance to meet in the same room is not really helpful. D. No third party making a decision about who has the stronger evidence. E. The agreement may be voided within 5 business days. This one is a pro and con because it allows special education personnel to get out of an agreed upon settlement. You can also void the settlement agreement, if you change your mind.To increase your chances of making an agreement bring very little documentation with you. Bring a pad and paper, copies of IDEA 2004, and your state special education regulations, and just a little documentation. If you have an Independent Evaluation you can bring that with you, also copies of your child’s district and state wide testing if it helps your case. By only bringing minimal documentation, it prevents the school district from getting a preview of your case.If you choose to bring an advocate, make sure that they are experienced in the resolution meeting, and also have a working knowledge of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Also bring a typed list of what you are willing to agree to, and what you are not willing to agree to. A lot of settlement agreements do not contain compensatory services, because most school districts do not offer them in settlement agreements. It is up to you about whether you are willing to give up compensatory services, for other items that you want.If you and special education personnel come to an agreement, it may be enforced in state or federal court. The reason is, that IDEA 2004 has added Legally Binding Settlement Agreements. Before IDEA 2004, mediation agreements could not be enforced in court.If you and the school district cannot come to an agreement the due process will continue according to the IDEA 2004 timelines.It is worth your time, to try and come to a resolution before due process. Due process is a tedious, gut wrenching, adversarial way to resolve disputes. Give the resolution meeting a try to resolve special education disputes.
