Biology Update for March 27, 2017 to March 31, 2017

Message from Mr. Chiclana

Dear parents,

Time is flying by really fast and before you know it school will be out for the summer. This means our biology students have begun to prepare for the End-Of-Course Exam while finishing up the Evolution Unit. We are more than half way through the Evolution Unit as of today. However, remember that Spring Break will interrupt our studies for an entire week. After this unit we have to complete one final one before we get to EOC time.

I am attempting to be caught up with all of the grading by the time we begin Spring Break so that you can have an understanding how your child is doing. I also want to remind you that we often use the Cornell-Note taking process since it is backed up by research as a very useful tool for student learning.

One more important note. Please support your child in creating and maintaining homework time at home. I am finding a very low number of students doing the reading, revisiting their Cornell-Notes, and other types of assignments. This ends up slowing us down and works against their grade. Information on the nightly homework can be found on the course agenda on the class website: Thank you for your support.

USA TestPrep Online Biology EOC Preparation

We have started to prepare for the Biology EOC using the USA TestPrep Online. Students will recieve this as an assignment on a weekly basis and will be expected to complete the practice with up to three attempts in order to be ready. This assignment will usually be given over the up coming weekends. Please remind your child to complete this task from a good working computer. Not al of the options will work on a cellphone.
