Students are given an outline of course work required to complete as school work each week, which includes the student correcting and grading work that is turned in for review. Students are also responsible for writing up their lab reports to cover labs and activities, then turn them in for evaluation.
There are 16 modules, which translate into 32 weeks of work to cover in 30 weeks, so students have a reading and work assignment to complete prior to our first class in the Fall as well as in the Spring semester.
Notebooks are a major part of the course. Student's course work is to be filed weekly.
Advice – Do not get behind!
Grading focuses on following directions and on-time full completion of assignments in order to help teach a valuable life skill that also assists students in their future academics.
This and more are detailed at our Required Orientation.
Please note that Schoology is the platform used for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class.
The focus is mastery of the subject and the best way to learn is to do; therefore the course incorporates 7 projects that are used for test scores. The grading system for each project is given in advance. These projects include 3 3-D presentations covering a cell, ecosystem, and insect, 1 project enables students to engage in a round-table discussion on evolution with specific parameters, 2 are labs in the text that are completed at home, with one presented in class and one turned in, and the last 1 is a perch dissection. The first project is due at the end of the first semester.
Pertaining to the labs, some common items to assist in the experiments will be required to bring to class. Also, one experiment is performed off campus at a pond, location to be announced.
The text heavily emphasizes vocabulary and provides a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems and provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation.
Looking forward to our exciting adventure as we do this together!

2020-2021: This is one of the toughest courses you will love. It is a college and work force preparatory class that is formatted to train students accordingly. The course is set up to help teach students how to learn and how to study. The work is demanding, but not only does the student learn, the lab is designed to foster teamwork and class unity.
This course is challenging.
Per text – 45 to one hour per school day; however, it can vary greatly for each individual student. It generally takes six weeks to fall into a routine and determine the time allotment needed for your student to do their best in this course.
This is one of the many things addressed at our Orientation.
A higher level of accountability is incorporated into the course. To maintain enrollment, students must follow through on weekly assignments. A vital component of the course grade evaluation is following instructions and keeping work organized. It begins at the required Student & Parent Orientation. Our orientation is one week prior to classes starting and is 2.5 hours and is typically held on the same day and at the same location as classes are scheduled.
This will be confirmed and a reminder sent.
Reminder: Schoology is the platform used for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class.
