Sessions are available upon request. Background knowledge is NOT required for this class. Each week we will research and discuss a different bird. Some of the information that we will learn includes the scientific name, classification, characteristics, special features, behavior, role in ecosystem, and where does the animal live. Some of the bird that we will cover include: American blue jay blue paradise bird Great Hornbill Harpy Eagle OPTIONAL: The bird of the week will be known ahead...
Dr. Lopez is an ecologist. She has research experience and has taught a course in Tropical Biology.
There is NO mandatory homework. Learners are encouraged to come to class prepared to discuss the bird of the week. Learners can prepare by researching the bird of the week before class.
I will provide weekly handouts with questions on the organism of the week. If the student want to put together a handwritten book on birds, they will need access to printer, paper, 3-ring binder, and pencil/pen. If the student want to put together a digital book on birds, they will need access to Microsoft Word to complete the handout.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Enthusiastic biology teacher. I share my knowledge and passion for science and allow learners to explore and think about unimaginable natural phenomenon.
