    •   Night   Mr. Romero's Biology Class
    • Biology: Living Environment 7th Grade
    • Biology: The Science of Life
      • As human beings, we are closely connected with all living things on earth.
      • We are going to learn how living organisms create all the life on our planet by interacting with one another and with their surroundings.
      • All forms of life have a single universal code written in their genes. 
    • Five Units that will cover in this course:
      • 1. Cell Biology (Organization of Life)
      •      Cell Structure and Function
      •      Photosynthesis
      •      Cellular respiration
      •      Cell Growth and Division
      •   2. Genetics (Heredity and Genetics)
      •      DNA & RNA
      •       Genetic Engineering
      •        Human Genome
    • Five Units:
      • 3. Evolution
      •      Darwin’s Theory of Evolution
      •      Evolution of Population
      •      Classification
      • 4. Earth & Life History 
      •      The Fossil Record
      •      Earth’s Early History
      •      Evolution of Multicellular Life
      • 5. Ecology
      •    The Biosphere
      •      Ecosystem and Communities
      •      Populations
      •      Humans in the Biosphere
    • Technology in the Classroom  
      • Student’s participation in online learning community.
      • “ My Biology” Website, created by Mr. Romero to post class notes, homework assignments and participation in online discussions.
      • The use of digital tools such as: computers,digital cameras,video cameras, softwares, and GPS devices. 
      • Required Book: 2010 Miller/Levine Electronic Biology book.
    • Labs and Activities
      • Labs that support the topics and chapters covered in class.
      • Labs that demonstrate the application of the biological concepts
      • in everyday life.
      • Labs that strengthen the knowledge of biological concepts.
      • Activities that reinforce key biological concepts and
      • Activities that build key technology skills.
    • Field Project: Trip to Eagle Rock Reservation, NJ
      • Human Impact on the Environment
    • Field Project (Continue)
      • 1. By using the Educational Technology standard CPI # 8.1.8.E.1- The Effective 
      •      use of digital tools to gather and organize information.
      • 2. Students photograph the surroundings areas of Eagle Rock Reservation
      • 3. Students use a GPS device to locate the sites photographed
      • 4. Students may search Google Earth for additional geographic information.
      • 5. Students use digital video cameras to document our field activity and then  
      •      create a video presentation. (posted in the “My Biology” website)
      • 6. Students compose an activity report and hand it   to me.   
    • Grades and Evaluations
      • Labs report must be handed on time
      • Quizzes before and after every topic.
      • 5 tests, one for each topic
      • Students will graded on the field project based on:
      • Original activity report, use of graphics, video, and posting on the discussion website. 
    • Thank you for coming!!
