UACHS Biology Lesson plans will be posted on my Edlio page weekly. Click on "posts" on the right side to see them.
The weekly lesson plan describes what students can do on every school day.
Daily work includes:
1. A Do-Now assignment as a preparation work for a new lesson.
2. A new lesson to read or a video to watch on Pearson (every student has a Pearson account where lessons and chapters are assigned for reading).
3. An assignment related to the new lesson, can be an online interactivity on Pearson or a written assignment on Schoology.
4. A closing assessment or a homework on Pearson or Schoology.
Daily work must be posted where it's assigned to be done (either on Pearson or Schoology) by 11:59 pm in order to be graded. Missing assignment will unfortunately reduce the overall average for the semester.
I will be available for any help or clarification during every school day between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm. You can send me a message to the following email:
Thank You and Stay Safe,
