Description

Class Experience

Students will understand how genes and traits are passed within a family. 
Students will understand how mutations impact genes and traits. 
Students will learn about specific genetic disorders that are both common and uncommon in today's world. 
Standards: 
MS-LS1-5. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms. 
MS-LS3-1. Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism. 
MS-LS3-2. Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.
Hi learners and parents! 
I currently am a credentialed teacher in Washington State and hold my endorsements in biology (5-12), health (K-12) and fitness (K-12). 
I currently teach AP Biology, honors biology, anatomy and physiology and health science. 
Last year, I taught biology, environmental science, health, physics and P.E. to middle and high school students. 
I hold my Masters Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in life sciences and health.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Athletic Training from Whitworth University. I completed 1,250 clinical hours in physical therapy clinics, collegiate, semi-professional and high school athletic training rooms, emergency rooms and urgent cares.
Students will be assigned note sheets to complete throughout the lessons. 
Students will be assigned a creative, final project that will challenge them to apply all that they have learned throughout the course.
Homework each week should take about 1 hour.
Students will be supplied with a note sheet each week that can be printed or downloaded as a word document.
Students will be assessed with note sheets and a final, culminating project. 
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
