This course, covering the broad spectrum of biology, is one of the three core high school science classes. Each class begins with a discussion of the material, and then moves to a hands-on learning activity or lab to keep the students actively engaged.  We will have heavy microscope use, model making, and dissections. I am a born again Christian and a creationist who believes in a young Earth. This worldview will be woven into everything we do.

This biology course includes a tree identification workshop, where the students will learn how to identify native Georgia trees using a field guide for their fall project.  August 10th and 13th. Attendance for at least one workshop is required. Contact me for conflicts.

Note Taking:
In preparation for college the student will be developing note-taking skills. All notes and sketches that are required to be in the notebook will be written on the projector screen during class discussion. 

Regular and Honors Levels:
A student may take this course as regular high school biology, or honors biology. Honor students will have additional material that goes into more depth in an area of interest for each chapter. Parents and students will need to indicate level option at the beginning of the year. If the student needs to drop back to the regular level during the semester, parents need contact instructor by the end of the third chapter.  

Students will need access to the internet, computer, printer, and a way to scan work into PDF files. Homework assignments will be on the Eastside Academic Studies website. Honor students will need a Gmail account for email, so they can access supplemental materials.

Grades: Grades will be based on homework, tests, labs & notebook, projects, and participation. Grades will be posted on Gradebook.
