Assignments and Homework Policy

Students will work on a variety of tasks that range from discussion and reading assignments to hands-on activities,laboratory investigations, and State Science Work Samples. For some students the work will be completed in class, others will find that they need to finish the assignment at home. Students also have the option of revising and editing some assignments that are already graded (lab reports, for example).



Student Folders are graded every two or three weeks. Reading assignments, vocabulary, and other worksheets are worth 5 points Lab reports are worth 10 points and projects and work samples are worth 20 points. Students are asked think of their folders as "portfolios" of their best work.

Anatomy and Physiology

Course Description

This life science course is an exploration of the structures and functions of the human body. While studying the human body provides a central focus, there will also be important studies in ...
... cell biology: cell structure and function
... microscopy: use of the compound and binocular microscopes
... histology: preparation and staining of tissues to make slides
... comparative anatomy: comparison of different animal tissues and organs
... genetics: the study of traits and inheritance
... development: the process of growth from embryo to adult
... evolution & extinction: the emergence and disappearance of new species
Lab explorations are guided by the Elements of Inquiry: learning how to form scientific questions, design investigations, collect and present data, and finally to critically analyze their data and draw reasonable conclusions.
This course is designed for students to meet or exceed Oregon State Standards in Life Science, while also addressing their needs to successfully submit Work Samples in the Elements of Inquiry.
To earn a C2 or better a student must keep an organized folder of their completed work and participate positively in classroom activities.
