“Exploring Creation with Biology is an award-winning, college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. With a strong emphasis on vocabulary and experiments, the course provides the student with a solid background in biology which is presented an in a readable, conversational tone.” –Apologia website

Organization is very important and students are required to keep a binder with sections for notes, labs, quizzes/tests, and worksheets. Students should bring their textbook, student notebook, binder, colored pencils and pencils to every class.

Each module takes about two weeks to cover. During this time students will complete the reading, On Your Own questions and Study Guide Questions. Latin vocabulary is also included in the weekly content.  Every week students are quizzed—week one will be Latin vocabulary and week two will be module vocabulary and content. Students watch documentaries and read articles related to creation and evolution then submit summaries. Students will complete additional worksheets related to module content i.e. coloring sheets, genetics worksheets, etc.

Each semester there is a comprehensive final exam with module content, diagrams, at least one essay question (first semester only) and Latin vocabulary.

Students are required to complete a science fair project which will be due in January.  Hands-on labs are an important part of a biology course. During the first semester, most labs will be centered on the microscope.   The focus of second semester will be dissections—plant/flower, fruit, and animal. We normally dissect 7 – 9 different animals (students are in groups of 2 – 3).   Students are required to submit lab drawings and when appropriate, reports or abstracts.

I look forward to seeing each student in August!
