This is the first semester of a two semester High School Biology course, however with a twist! My methodology is project based learning. This class will even include “at home labs” and a super fun final projects where the students will create and evolve their own new creatures from existing ones! The Class will cover the standards of High School Life Science based in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This includes everything from the Cell, Genetics, Taxonomy, Ecology, and some...
Cover and understand the following topics/standards: • Understand how structure and function are related and how they carry out the basic essentials of life • Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems • The Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems (The Circle of Life) • Inheritance and Variation of Traits • Natural Selection and Evolution
All homework, quizzes, and exams are optional based on the needs of the student and if they are enrolled in a charter school, homeschooled, or just learning to learn. Types of Assignments: • Weekly Quizzes on past discussions • Midterm and Final Exam • AT HOME labs • Final Project and the correlating assignments to complete it • Other creative projects to help solidify principles taught (for example Cellular Organelle Personification - If the _____ where a person, who would they be?)
1 file available upon enrollment• Science Notebook • For “AT HOME” labs (smock, protective gloves, and eye protection) • Recommended but not required - Textbook “Glencoe Biology” published by McGraw-Hill (any version will work)
Each assignment turned in, will be graded. It is recommended that each student do all the assigned work and if you ask us for an overall grade, it will be based on the complete course. There is a Rubric of 30% Final Project, 20% Midterm, 20% Final Exam, 20% Homework and Labs,& 10% Quizzes.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
In the sections on Human Anatomy, as well as with Natural Selection & Evolution, both human and other life forms reproduction will be discussed. This will be strictly scientific. It will be about how inheritance works and how the endocrine system works. This is not a “Health Class”.

I am a lifelong learner and I hope I can pass that on to your student, so their life can be enriched by the power of learning! My motto as a teacher is to always teach the class that I would want to take as a student. :) I have been a teacher in...
