Class Experience

The students will understand that the plain is a vital habitat for the animals that we will be learning about. They will be able to gain and demonstrate knowledge about each animal of study as they engage and discuss with classmates. The students will be able to answer comprehension questions about each animal at the conclusion of each weeks lesson, as well as review prior learning from previous lessons. 
I have studied animal habitat and behavior extensively.  I am passionate about conservation of animals and love being able to share my knowledge with students.  I have taught many lessons centered around this content and feel confident discussing and answering any questions my students may have. 
The students will be asked to talk about the animal they found most interesting and why.  Note taking is encouraged throughout the 4 week course but it not required!
The students will be assessed based upon their classroom participation, discussions with classmates, and talk at the conclusion of the course. The teacher will gauge student learning for each student based upon their answers to comprehension questions and participation in guided discussions throughout the 4 week course. The assessments will be informal for this course. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
