Customize with Biology and a lab dissection with microscope course, use The Cartoon Guide to Genetics, choose Cambridge Biology with online resources, or Campbell Biology (if you prefer a text a few years old and the price is right! They have a nice study guide and AP syllabus guide too.) HHMI resources on https://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive are super.

Rather than focusing on writings as a summary, the student thoughtfully reflects on the reading and makes connections, evaluations, and conclusions across the subjects. Luckily there are a lot of creative ways to get here and high school is a great time when students have opinions, so there are no shortages of ideas! We continue to develop writing so that a variety of styles can be used successfully and also show an understanding of the requirements for each style. This will be college-prep writing where students will use self-evaluation skills to improve their writing and learning skills. Keep in mind that high school composition is not just reading and answering comprehension questions. Review that with your student as needed.
This course will focus on providing your own focus and evaluation using your experiences to make deeper connections with the content you are reading. You can add more or less journaling and diaries too, depending on your student interest. The Customized Reader’s & Writer’s Journal includes reader’s responses, personal responses, vocabulary, notes, timeline events, and atlas locations across the subjects. Mix it up and let the student own it! You can add as little or as much structure as both you and your student are comfortable with.
Organization, planning, and ownership of the student’s work are both important to emphasize and showcase their learning and encourage self-motivation, self-awareness, and goal-setting. For the Customized Reader's & Writer's Journal add extra pages as needed. Work can be written or typed on a computer. Pages will include a Customized Reader’s & Writer’s Journal for reading responses for all subjects. This is a Customized activity book with journal activity pages and projects that are Customized with a personalized style depending on the student's choices. The student can Customize this and it becomes a study guide and portfolio. Both you and your student can be involved in the process. Customize the journal reading responses across the subjects including study skills, higher level questioning, weekly self-evaluations that cycle through the subjects, and Parent/Teacher Evaluations, Teacher/Student Personal Journal, vocabulary words, spelling, sketches, notes, custom atlas & timeline items all within the Reader's & Writer's Journal. The Customized journal pages include a hot issue debate, personal letters, reflections presented in a variety of student chosen ways, and white papers.
