About the Group
Bristol High School is a small rural school in Northeast Ohio. Teachers here are especially proud that our kids get along so well and are mostly kind to each other. Natural resources in our area include Mosquito Lake State Park (sounds terrible but is actually a birding hotspot), Grand River Wildlife Area and Mosquito Creek Waterfowl Management Area (home to the endangered Massasauga Rattlesnake. Kids here love being outside, and many are avid hunters and campers.
Teacher Outcomes: I would like to teach photosynthesis and cell respiration on a way that students will understand their connection to themselves and to the carbon cycle.
Student Outcomes: I would like for my students to be more engaged in science and to form working relationships with scientists. Photosynthesis and cell respiration have been difficult for my students to investigate in the past.
Course Name and Description
Biology (2 classes)
Science background and language skills
The two biology classes I teach are very motivated and can mostly self- direct their learning.
The life science class is a biology class for struggling students. This would be the class where students with IEPs will be placed. Many of the life science students struggle to learn.
