- Students complete an overview of living organisms and life processes in this course. Beginning at the microscopic level and ending with a study of larger plants and animal life, students gain an understanding of the complexity, unity, and diversity of life. Students complete reading, basic notes, and answer questions at home, as well as other assignments.
In class, labs and activities will be completed and more in depth notes will be given as needed. In the second semester a series of dissections are completed as a part of an in-depth study of the kingdoms. Students are assessed with quizzes, labs reports, and tests for each module.
Each quarter there will be a notebook check as well as additional in-depth assignments related to specific topics. One module is completed approximately every 2-3 weeks. Study and learning skills are emphasized throughout the course as students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.
