Class Experience

1. To understand the general principles of animal classification and describe the characteristics of the major animal phyla.
2. To gain an appreciation for the diversity of animal forms and understand the unity which exists within this diversity.
3. To explore anatomical and physiological principles by studying form and function relationships.
4. To acknowledge how organisms interact with their environments and how environmental conditions.
5. To be able to use the general principles in the field to discuss the current and future issues.
Learners will not need to use any applications, models, or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools. I will provide PPT or PFD’s of the material in the class. Class components include lecture, discussion, readings from scientific journal articles, and group projects if applicable (e.g. research paper on a topic of current interest).
I consider the following components to evaluate the students in this class.
1) Their attendance and if they attended every class.
2) Did they participate in the class discussion.
3) Have they handed in their assignments and science project.
I will write a report to the parent for how the student did in the class and their assignments. This will be a good indication of well they understood the materials.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
