Description

Class Experience

After six weeks, students will be able to thoroughly discuss major issues in conservation and how they affect animals. Students will have a comprehensive understanding of several species of wildlife and strategies that humans can use to combat extinction. 
I got my bachelor's degree in biology (wildlife ecology) and my Master's in science education. I am a high school biology, environmental science, and zoology teacher and have experience working with many animals, including from sloths to poisonous frogs to sea anemones. Animals are my favorite thing to teach! Before teaching, I conducted small mammal research in Florida and worked at an aquarium, two major science museums and a primate sanctuary. I love zoology and giving students the chance to expose themselves to more specialized topics.
Each week, students will receive a pre-recorded video lesson (15-30 minutes) of me teaching the weekly topic and a guided notes sheet that students may use if they would like. Supplemental videos, discussions, and homework assignments will also be in the classroom to allow students to explore further. Students will also be prompted to answer discussion questions and interact with peers around the world. There will be a short quiz each week and a test at the end of the unit. Both are optional. I will provide feedback to all submitted work and can provide a numerical grade if desired.
There are no other supplies needed, but students may choose to use Google suite (documents, slides, etc) for notes or activities. Students may also choose to use art supplies for some projects but are not required to use any of these materials. Students may want to print out class materials, but again, not required.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Feedback will be given on all submitted assignments. If desired, I can provide a formal numerical grade.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Video lessons are hosted on Youtube and quizzes are on Google Forms. Students do not need to log in or have any account.
