My name is Stoney Turner and I am an 8th grade Science and Social Studies teacher on the Raider's team here at River Bend Middle School.
Since the time from when I was in middle school, (many, many years ago) a lot has changed. I have on more than one occasion been left in amazement on how efficient young people are at using new forms of technology. Elementary students all the way down to kindergarteners can now navigate an iPad, a tablet, a personal laptop, or other numerous electronic devises with ease. In addition, their skills at texting a message over a cell phone is far better than mine ever will be. Nowadays, it is not uncommon for middle and high school age students to have a blog or a "YouTube" channel.
Yes, indeed, for the 21st century learner, the chalk board is non-existent and simple textbooks and whiteboards are not always enough to keep them engaged. These students are highly interactive and expect quick access to information. With that being said, this website will be a central location where students can access lessons, links, and other materials needed for my classroom. To the left of the screen, click “Mr. Turner’s Classes” and you will be redirected to my educational webpage. Please take a moment and explore.
If I can be of any service, please do not hesitate to contact me.
