About the Course
This high school biology course is designed to be your high school student’s first science course. As a college-prep high school biology course, it will set the stage for success in their homeschool years in high school, prepare them for college-level courses, and give them an understanding of the basic biological world that surrounds them each day of their lives, so they can appreciate the real-world relevance of a scientific inquiry.
In this course there is:
• A heavy emphasis on the vocabulary of biology so that students are properly prepared to have scientific discussions
• A strong background in the scientific method so that students are trained for laboratory sciences in other high school science courses, as well as university studies
• Labs that cover experimentation, microscopy, and dissection
• Introduction to classification, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, ecosystems, and much more
Materials needed: Exploring Creation with Biology Textbook, 3rd Edition - Textbook & Student notebook. We will be using the book tests, but I will purchase this material.
Grades will be calculated on the:
2. lab reports
4. class participation
I plan to utilize Google classroom as a platform for tests and homework as well as for maintaining grades.
Please reach out with any questions concerning this course.
This fall I will be teaching both 5/6 Poetry/Creative Writing/Grammar and Biology I.
After many years as a homeschooling mom, last year I returned to the classroom with Cornerstone. I enjoyed it so much! As nerdy as it sounds, I love to learn! What an amazing blessing from God to be able to study the world around us and learn more about Him.
I attended Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Science Education in 2008. Amazingly, I taught only one year in a public school before I had the blessing of staying home with my oldest daughter. I re-started my formal education last summer when I took an online course and became registered as an IEW instructor.
With God's help, I am finishing my 9th year of homeschooling my three daughters. Living and learning with my husband and our daughters in the countryside of southern Indiana is one of the greatest blessings of my life. When I'm not teaching or homeschooling, I enjoy baking, cooking, gardening, and reading. I am looking forward to the honor of teaching new classes and new students in the fall of 2023!
