We are counting down the days of our first month at school. So far, I must say that it has beem an interesting experience. I have learned alot about my students – their goals, their expectations and to some extent their ability. Special mention goes out to the following fifth formers who ACED their first Biology test! CONGRATS guys!!!

 Biology Achievement Certificates

Well, well, well. After a long summer away from the classroom, sessions formally began today. I must say, I am looking forward to working with my Biology students. I had fun interactive classes with both groups.

My fourth formers were given an assignment to write up a short essay on their expectations for the year, to include their reasons for choosing Biology in the first place. I am particularly looking forward to reading Nery’s essay…

In fifth form we did a brief review of fourth form and started of the term officially with the Transport System. Apart from reading up on the human circulatory system, I am sending out the e-challenge for any and everyone to hand in a diagram of the human heart. Your own drawing, please…

Its summertime and the weather is fine…(half the time – and wet & rainy the other half). This is the week after the summer workshop and my summer vacation has finally officially begun.

I look forward to heading back to school in late August, but for now I am enjoying my summer vacation.

Teaching today is different from what it used to be. As a matter of fact, many of the tools that have become fundamental to educators today were only optional when I was a student. Options that were hardly ever used.

There are advantages and disadvantages to any strategy used to achieve instructional objectives. But content it more likely to become ’embedded’ in the long term memory of students when the class is fun and memorable.

One way to make scince fun is to (as much as possible) use field trips instead of lectures. Students learn more when they have fun learning.

This is a new thing for me. I’ve heard a lot about blogging but I never realized that I could use it to communicate with students, as well as  giving them an opportunity to express themselves in a forum where they feel less restricted.

I am looking forward to learning more about blogging.

Today we are adding videos and widgets to our website.

I choose to add this cool video about the cell. I like it because it shows the connection between the organism, organ, tissue, and cell.
