Welcome Back To School!!!

January7

My name is Tamisha Wiltshire and I will be co-teaching this semester:

1st, 2nd & 4th period General Biology with Mrs. Kathryn Chapman (Syllabus: BIOLOGY_2018_Syllabus-24z22wi)

In this Blog, you will find helpful information, such as notes and support aids to help with learning and studying for upcoming quizzes/test.  I will be posting “This Week In Biology” every Monday morning for you to see what we will be working on the upcoming week.

Feel free to contact me for any classroom related aspects, any questions regarding the special education aspects of the course and/or support services.

Please refer to the course  links to find helpful information to assist with daily work, reminders, test preparation, and/or remediation.

I am always available to help!!! Educating every student is my goal!

This Week In Biology! 11/26

Week of 11/26/18 (tentative & subject to change)
Monday: Bioman Activity Assigned; Cladograms practice and more practice
Tuesday: Dichotomous Keys activities
Wednesday: Order of Living Things; Classification notes and activities
Thursday: continue Classification notes and activities
Friday: Learning Stations activities
***Remember you can be quizzed daily. Be Prepared***

SB4. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to illustrate the organization of
interacting systems within single-celled and multi-celled organisms.
a. Construct an argument supported by scientific information to explain patterns in structures
and function among clades of organisms, including the origin of eukaryotes by
endosymbiosis. Clades should include:
 archaea
 bacteria
 eukaryotes
 fungi
 plants
 animals
(Clarification statement: This is reflective of 21st century classification schemes and nested
hierarchy of clades and is intended to develop a foundation for comparing major groups of
organisms. The term ‘protist’ is useful in describing those eukaryotes that are not within the
animal, fungal or plant clades but the term does not describe a well-defined clade or a natural
taxonomic group.)
b. Analyze and interpret data to develop models (i.e., cladograms and phylogenetic trees) based
on patterns of common ancestry and the theory of evolution to determine relationships
among major groups of organisms.
c. Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence to compare and contrast the
characteristics of viruses and organisms.
