BLOG: Marine Biology


Marine Biology





This old dog is trying a new trick. Please be patient as I (attempt to) transition over to Google Classroom.  For those of you already fluent in everything Googly, my Marine Bio class code is  57visu

To find out what happens in class each day, use my Google Classroom. Keeping a separate "blog" turned out to be redundant.

First day of class...

 Everyone took a "prequiz" and I went over room-specific policies & procedures (you can find a copy under the DOCUMENTS page of this website).

IF you are ever ABSENT, THIS IS YOUR "HOMEWORK" READ THIS BLOG and TELL Loomis (first-thing) what it told you we were doing while you were gone.


Students MUST HAVE a 3-ring binder (with 1" rings), one that will hold NOTHING but the REQUIRED paperwork.  None of your materials from other classes allowed.  If you're not too picky, I have a few "used" ones available in class (Reduce, Reuse, know the mantra)...but don't count on it.  It's best to arrive with your own.  If your backpack is already too full, ask, and I'll provide you a safe space to store it in class.


to recap...HOMEWORK:


1) Get the Course Expectations "signed"* and returned


2) Get a 3-ring (1"rings) binder ASAP


  *either hard copy/old school-style or scroll down/read for the "green" version (B below)...
