Movies and documentaries that might be of concern.  Keep in mind that the following is only for fun and should only be watched with parent or guardian approval!!! Armageddon, Apollo 13, Gravity, san andreas, trouble with the curve, money ball, cosmic voyage, october sky, the long way, rain man, green mile, the barkley marathons, bitcoin, dirty money, unbranded, the experimenter, voyager, slingshot, star talk.  Netflix is constantly adding new documentaries that can add to this list.  The ultimate battery is an example.  




I have added a project list at the bottom of the page.  The First nine weeks projects are due by Friday before grades are due for the 1st 9 weeks.  If your student has not turned it in by that Friday it will not be accepted.  They are given the assignment on the first day of school.  They can turn it in anytime they wish.  It doesn't have to be turned in on the last day.  Everyday is an acceptable time to turn it in.

This years curriculum will be guided by class discussions and investigations led by the students and guided by the teacher.  

Thursday and Friday is the Unit 1 test on bio-evolution.  This test should take two days.  We had very late buses on Thursday so it will push back the test about 20 or so minutes into Monday.  

9-17-18 we will begin unit 2 by looking at classifying plants and animals.  Taxonomy and dichotomous keys will take two days each and we will begin Cladograms on Friday (if things go as scheduled).  All activities will be done in class and the students notes will be limited.  The key to this week is being able to use the skill of separating organisms based on characteristics and being able to make a dichotomous key.  


The first Unit will start on Friday or perhaps Monday depending on how far we get with opening the school year information.  It will begin with biological evolution.  There will be little to no homework with the exception of the students projects which is listed at the bottom of the page.  You can download the project assignment list.  1 of those are due for each 9 weeks.  The same one cannot be done twice unless the student is given permission by me.  

Please feel free to contact me through email with any concerns.  Give me 24hrs or so to reply.  I usually check my email at least once a day, but during homeroom approx 755am.
