Bell Schedule 2011-2012
Biology Summer School 2012
|Biology is a college prep investigative laboratory oriented course with
emphasis on basic structural, physiological, ecological, evolutionary, and
genetic principles as they pertain to living organisms.
This course will be taught
with a heavy emphasis on laboratory investigations. Lectures will cover
the main concepts in the chapters and labs will reinforce those concepts.
Students will be required to take notes from the lectures or labs. Quizzes
and tests will be given periodically to insure students understand
the material (remember that practice tests and review games are
available online on my homework page) . Critical thinking skills and hands-on
investigative skills will be emphasized in the labs, where students will often
work with partners or groups to develop cooperative learning skills.
Students can refer to the
for class work assignments. The Calendar reflects
projected class work and may be altered. Students are required
to write down the weeks schedule every Monday in class in their
notebooks or "date planner". This may be updated
during the week and it is the students responsibility to update as necessary.
Parents are encouraged to check their students work every day.
Current grades and assignment due dates can be accessed by logging
onto School Loop
(click on link below). Both students and parents are
encouraged to check this regularly.
Take advantage of the 30 minute tutorial on Wednesday and Thursday. If you need extra help in this class you can sign up
for my tutorial and we can get you up to speed. This would be
a great time to work on homework and review for tests. You may
use the computers in this classroom for academic purposes
ONLY! This includes taking online practice tests, checking
your grades on School Loop, or completing online labs. Manage
your time wisely! Tutorial is not a time for
socialization.........if you do not have something to work you will
have to find another room to "hang out"
