Test Today

Today students took a test on macromolecules and the properties of water. This test covered the BIG concepts we've been learning about for the past two weeks. Think of it as a warm up for the final exam. A few students who were absent will need to take the test on Monday, but if you were in class on Friday, you will be able to see your grade on Monday. On Tuesday we will go over the test.

And now, your homework....

By Monday at 3:35 PM, email me the answers to the following questions:

1. What assignment are you most proud of from this class and why?

2. How does this work demonstrate your skills and abilities in Biology?

3. What was challenging or interesting about this project?

4. If you had to do this again, what would you do differently?

5. What did you work the hardest on? Was it a specific project, studying for a test, learning to be organized etc?

6. What was the most interesting thing to learn about this spring term? In case you’ve forgotten all that we have done, look back through the blog archive.

7. What were the biggest challenges to your success in this class?

8. How did you work to overcome these challenges?

9. How have you changed as a student from the start of the year to now?

10. What can you teach others about Biology that you couldn't before?

11. Is there a skill that you learned in this class that can help you in other classes, if so what it it? (don't you dare write "nothing" because you are tired of writing.

Part 2:

What are three things you think I do well as a teacher?

What are three things (or areas) where you think I could improve as a teacher?
** I know that you folks weren't big fans of the test you took today as illustrated by the number of "OMG's" that were uttered in various languages. Consider that feedback received loud and clear, and try to think about other ways to improve the class for future students. **

What is one piece of advice you would give to students who are taking this class next year?

Anything else I should know?
