Parents/Guardians/Support Squad: I highly recommend FOUR specific ways to provide support:

    • Read the Course Syllabus for the course that your student is enrolled in so you are aware of course expectations/protocols/materials/suggestions. Follow course links above or use "Self-Guided Tour" below to access documents/links.
    • Encourage and make it possible for your student to take advantage of all 7th periods - my calendar for support is posted below.
    • Go to "From Me: Explanations", here on my Google Site to hear me elaborate on critical course items - especially study strategies and expectations.
    • Progress Report Analysis: every 5 weeks your students will be reflecting on their progress, please discuss this with them. Our goal is to maximize their understanding in the most efficient way!

Most Support is provided during 7th period but sometimes support is provided at lunch time (L).

Please plan ahead to attend 7th period - make it part of your day!

The Self-Guided HyperDoc Tour below will be distributed in 'Google Classroom'.

Keep asking questions!

Investigate a phenomenon - make a claim, provide evidence and a reason!

Remember it is so important to: treat ALL members of our educational community with dignity

This is a video recorded as I spoke with students in 2019 who were deciding between Honors and AP Biology. In addition to helping students differentiate between courses it can give you an understanding of what each course is like and how to do your best work in it. Two former students provide excellent advice as well and answer questions.

Cool Story about OPHS Science Department!

Don't be afraid of mistakes - (check out video) make your mistakes, adjust your strategies, try again, the sooner you fail the sooner you will find your success. Try different ways to study, to engage, to present, to design a lab.... you will get better faster!

The way we learn! #GrowthMindset!
