The marking period ends
Your grades are poor
Have you done all the assignments?
Extra credit has less of an effect on your grade than replacing a Z with a 50 or 60
Monday 3/18 is the last date for anything to be made up, turned in etc.

From: I wish Dr. G. knew-

[You didn’t think I was going to talk about everything that came up in this “channel” in class did you?]

 

The person [sic]  assignments shouldn't be graded based on the quiz grade because some of us didn't do so well and that grade can bring ours down or at least let us retake it so we can do better.

 

I’m not sure whomever wrote this understands the concept of grading. Grades don’t have to be good to count. If you didn’t know that a grade could lower your GPA, why would you ever try. If you do poorly, in Pearson, there is a remediation option, which allows you to improve your understanding of the concepts and your grades. But, it is additional work. The current plan is to average the 3 quizzes related to chapter 4 into 1 grade.

READING

Tentative Reading Schedule:

Reading….You should anticipate reading (and mastering the content) of about 5 pages a day. If you are going to your sister’s wedding and will be busy on Saturday, plan on reading 10 pages on Sunday. If you are heavily involved in a sport and can’t focus during the week, plan on reading about 35 pages over the weekend.

We have a brand new book, that was specifically adapted to Florida, your EOC and our needs. It is available (with bells and whistles) through your portal and as hard-copy.  I will distribute hard copy later.

One issue, the hard copy and online version are not exactly the same.  The online version doesn’t have page or question numbers in the same ways as the hard copy version.

I will assign readings using  “Lesson numbers” from the online version (these are like chapter-sections in older books). If you are reading the hard-copy you have to figure out the pages.  

One issue that has plagued my biology classes for the last several years is that students do not read the material until just before a test, if at all.

Last year I tried daily reading quizzes.  No one enjoyed this. And, as a result of rampant cheating, their effectiveness decreased.  This year, I’m trying something I’m calling “Be prepared to answer.”

At least once a week there will be oral quizzes, calling on students in a random order.

-Note-I can’t seem to get the ebook to load “nicely” in Internet Explorer. It works well in Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

Due 8/27, 28 Read Lesson 1.3

Due 8/31 Read Lessons3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 6.2, 6.3, 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3

As we get used to the book there will be assignments, as well as the readings, through the PearsonRealize platform associated with the book.



Note: While there are dates in the plans below they have been added before any of the school functions that might interfere (assemblies etc.) have been scheduled. As such, this agenda is still tentative.

In an attempt to reduce the amount of paper I can misplace and to reduce the number of trees cut down for my classes I am instituting the following policy.

Each assignment submitted via email or OneNote will earn an extra 1-2 points on that assignment. 

You can’t lose by submitting via email.  The only caveat (warning) is that digital submissions are easier to check for plagiarism.
You want to read the "Don't Panic" document (always a  work in progress, but, up-to-date as of June 2018)
