High School Biology Class
Biology I – In this class your student will explore biology using a classical approach.
A successful student will be self-motivated, able to complete assigned weekly reading, as well as interact with peers on a digital platform (Google Classroom) during the week.
Students will be given tips to prepare for the CLEP Biology test, which can be worth up to 6 college credits! We’ll utilize Modern States in order to obtain a voucher for saving the $87 test fee.
On class day (Fridays), we will spend time;
- drilling vocab,
- discussing the topic of the week, and
