Class Experience

I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology from Oglethorpe University and and a Masters of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Science Education from Georgia State University. I have been teaching sciences to inclusion classes for 16 years to grades 7-12, and have certifications from the states of Georgia and California. I am deeply knowledgeable on the structure of the Next Generation Science Standards and best practices of science instruction. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
All classes are based on the accepted consensus of the secular scientific community, and may include discussions of evolution by natural selection, the cellular and hormonal mechanics of sexual and asexual reproduction, and other aspects of studying living systems.

Procreate and Sketchbook are digital drawing apps that can be downloaded for use on a tablet and are only for personal use for the learner. They do not require user accounts, and are not required for the class. 

Google Drive links are used to share a pdf  file each week, containing all of the Creatures of Biosomnium and updates on new creatures added and story elements that have been developed. Learners will not use a login or navigate to a website to access this guide. The guide is not to be shared outside of learners enrolled in Biosomnium.
