Students are expected to come to class on time, prepared for the day’s lessons or activities. Repeated absences will greatly impact the student’s ability to understand and learn the material as well as affect their grade for the class. I understand some absences are unavoidable, but you will be held accountable for all missed activities and assignments. I also expect students to respect their classmates and their learning environment. Considerable emphasis is placed on field investigations as well as on laboratory study. Students will apply field research techniques for ecosystem monitoring and restoration in a variety of systems1. Students are expected to be in class every day. This is a field science and field work is a large component of the class. This is a participation-based class and ATTENDANCE IS CRITICAL!
2. Students are expected to dress appropriately for field work and be aware of the elements to which they will be exposed!
Tests/ Projects This class will be project based and driven by student interests. Ability to identify different components of ecosystems will also be emphasized and tested.
Laboratory / Field Work Careful lab procedures and completion of follow-up questions are important components of your grade for lab/field activities. Students will keep a lab/field notebook for this class.
