Welcome to the Biology @ SPS Blog

Below are some questions (and answers) you might have about this blog. If you have a question that isn't listed below, feel free to post it as a comment -- just sign your name as "First Name and Last Initial."

Q: Why not just use blackboard instead?

A: Honestly, I'm a lot more familiar with blogging and have been doing this for the past few years. Also, it's easier (for me) to embed videos and pictures. Lastly, if your parents/guardians want to know what's going on in class or see the work you're doing, they don't need to remember a password to log in.

Q: How often am I supposed to check this?

A: You should check it everyday. A summary of what we did in class along with your homework and in some cases links for your homework/projects will be posted here.

Q: Will I ever have to post a comment?

A: Yes, you will. To post a comment you can either create an account or click "anonymous," just make sure that you sign your "First Name and Last

Q: If you don't tell us homework in class will you post something here?

A: Occasionally yes, which is why it is important to check the blog daily. However, to be fair, any assignments posted here that were not presented in class will be posted no later than 5pm.

Q: What if I can't find something that was posted more than a week ago?

A: Try looking in the blog archive, located at the very bottom of the right sidebar. You will be able to search by post title.

Q: What's with all the posts below this one?

A: Those are all posts from last year when I taught Advanced Biology at New Hampton School.
