Hi Amy,
I see that you teach AP Bio and I'm wondering if you have any type of exam review class activities? Specifically I'm looking for a big, end of the year (before the exam) powerpoint review (maybe a question on a slide and then the answer on the next slide) or a jeopardy style game or similar that I can do with the whole class. If you have anything like this I would be interested. Thanks!

I LOVE The Scientific Method and Common Core Task Cards! I'm wondering if you could also make a Graphing set of task cards? My kids always need graphing practice (especially line graphs). I use the acronym DRY MIX (dependent, responding, y axi and manipulated, independent, x axis) with my students and I would love it if your task cards were editible so I could tweak them to fit my classroom needs (like using DRY MIX - which, by the way you may use if you like, as well :)). I would be willing to pay more for an editible version, as I think many teachers would. Thanks so much - I love your work and you've really saved me so much time!

Hi Beth,

A set of graphing task cards is actually on my "to-do" list. But time is my greatest enemy. I have another large project in the works right now, and I am also trying to prepare 4 classes of AP Biology students for the upcoming AP exam. I will move your suggestion to the top of my to-do list, but it will probably have to be a summer project. I am so happy you have been pleased with your previous purchases!

Many thanks,
Amy

Sorry to bother you. I' want to get the best results, so i'm interested in the sequence that you teach classification. such as when do you do the activities, task cards, ect. basically a sequence of events. do you have a class site that i can see how you do this for your classes? or someplace on you blog?
March 26, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Science Stuff
Science Stuff  (TpT Seller)
Rest assured that your question is no bother. I am happy to help if I can.

I have a general order of events that I follow, but this order may change from year to year depending on the ability level of my students. This unit also contains a lot of activities. I may or may not use all of them, depending on how much time I have to spend on the unit.

I always start with the PowerPoint and the notes. I think the students need an understanding of the concepts before launching into the activities. While I am teaching with the PPT and the students are completing their notes, I use the Homework/Study guide document. I assign a few questions each night so that when I am finished with the notes, the student has a completed study guide.

I like to use the activity "Let's Build a Cladogram" immediately after teaching that concept in the PowerPoint.

After all notes are taken I give a quiz and then complete the rest of the activities and labs. I think the best lab/activity order is:
1. Dichotomous Key to a Crazy Animal Kingdom
2. Lab: Use of Dichotomous Keys
3. Lab: Let's Learn to Use and build a Dichotomous Key

Finally, just before "test day" I use the Jeopardy Review games and the task cards to sum up and review the entire unit.

Hope that helps! Thank you for purchasing one of my unit plan bundles.

Buyer re: DNA, RNA, Protein Synthesis Complete Unit Plan - 20 products
Does this unit cover DNA expression (as in differentiation and environmental influences)? If not, in which unit do you cover that information?
March 5, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Science Stuff
Science Stuff  (TpT Seller)
The unit was written for a standard level Biology I class. Gene expression is a very complex topic that I cover in my AP Biology class, but I do not have these materials listed on TpT.

This unit covers the following topics:
1) History of DNA Studies: Early concepts about genes, roles played by genes, Watson and Crick, Chargaff, Rosalind Franklin, Maurice Wilkins.
2) DNA nucleotides and their composition, purines, pyrimidines, how nucleotides are joined to one another.
3) The Watson and Crick model of DNA, the double helix, the base pairing rules, DNA as a carrier of information
4) Mechanisms by which a large amount of DNA can fit inside a small space of the nucleus, histones, nucleosomes
5) Replication of DNA: Drawings, steps in replication, DNA polymerase, hydrogen bonds, origins or replication, replication forks, complimentary strands, helicase
6) Proofreading and repairing DNA: the role of polymerases, nucleases, and ligases.
7) The Genetic Code: codons, amino acids
8) RNA: Differences between DNA and RNA, the functions of RNA, the three types of RNA (mRNA, tRNA, rRNA).
9) Transcription: Purpose of transcription, steps to transcription, promoter, terminator, RNA polymerase
10) RNA processing and editing, introns, exons
11) Understanding the genetic code, how codons translate into amino acids, start codons, stop codons, reading a table of codons
12) Translation: protein synthesis, ribosomes, steps in translation, the role of mRNA and the role of tRNA, structure of tRNA and its ability to transport amino acids, reading and deciphering the code.
13) Practice Problem: Given a DNA sequence, students will figure out the corresponding mRNA codon sequence, the tRNA anticodon sequence, and the amino acid sequence.
14) Ribosome structure: large subunit, small subunit, RNA binding sites, the entry and exit of tRNA to build a polypeptide, start codons, stop codons.
15) Mutations: definition of mutation, gene mutations, chromosome mutations, point mutations, base substitutions, base insertions or deletions, silent mutations, frameshift mutations.
16) The importance of mutations in natural selection.

November 20, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Science Stuff
Science Stuff  (TpT Seller)
Hi there. I can think of no reason why this should happen. In your download I included photographs showing the colors of the cabbage juice during the different parts of the experiment. In the tube containing only the cabbage juice, there would be nothing in the tube to cause a change to pink. The two tubes containing seeds should show a definite change, but the tube containing the germinated seeds should be more pink than the tube containing the dry seeds. Is it possible that the glassware was contaminated prior to the lab?

Hello, and thank you for your interest in my products.

I omitted some of the more difficult topics in my shorter version for a particular class of students that needed to move at a slower pace. I would guess that the two versions are about 80% the same.

Without knowing your students it would be difficult for me to offer an opinion as to which product would best meet your needs. I would probably buy the longer version and edit out the topics I didn't want or need. You will easily be able to delete sections of notes and the corresponding slides of the PowerPoint.

They are two separate products. However, the biochemistry ppt does has some overlapping topics. In the biochem ppt, I included information about polar and nonpolar molecules, the hydrogen bonding of water, pH and buffers, and this information is also included in the "water" ppt. The water ppt does go into more details and contains slightly more advanced information than what I included in the biochem ppt.

If not, could you please list the Bundles you do sell that would take me thru the entire school year of Biology.
Thank you!

I went ahead and bought the task cards....they are terrific. I don't know where to find the teacher's guide that is mentioned that has ideas for each task card. Should that file have been in the one that I downloaded? If so, it didn't come along with the other pieces. What can I do?

Thank you for these helpful ideas and real timesavers.

Thank you so much for your purchase! I am not sure what you mean by a teacher's guide that has "ideas for each task card." The "idea" is on the task card itself. The student reads the informational text and carries out the task that is listed on the task card. In the folder you downloaded was a "Read Me!" file that has some ideas of different ways you might use the task cards with your students. The folder also contained a file called "Teacher Guide" that is a correlation of each task card to the CCSS standards. This teacher guide allows you to know which standard is being taught or reinforced on the task card.

I hope this helps. If i have failed to understand your question or not given you a satisfactory answer, please contact me. My email is "amy1007@aol.com"

Thanks again for your purchase of my products.

Buyer re: Common Core Bundle Grades 9 and 10 Science and Technical Subjects
Is there a significant difference between this and the one for 11-12? I will be teaching 10th and 11th this year and I just purchased the one for 9-10.

The "Information science task cards" and the "graphic organizers" are the same in each bundle. Two of the products are different. The mini-posters will be different because the standards for 9-10 and 11-12 are not quite the same. Also, the lesson planning grids and the checklists will be different because the standards are different. I would not buy the 11-12 bundle since you already have the 9-10 bundle. You can buy the two products that are different at these links:

Hello! I am going to be going into my first year of teaching (after subbing for the last two-and-a-half years) this fall. I will be teaching Living Environment (New York State's "idea" of Biology), 7th grade Life Science, and Anatomy & Physiology. As you can see, I've got A LOT of planning to do, so I'm trying to get my start. I'm EXTREMEMLY overwhelmed at this point. I keep trying to plan out in what order to teach the topics, but get frustrated and feel like I'm forgetting something. I tried to look to the school's textbook for guidance, but it's not the greatest textbook.

I've been looking at your products and they all seem so amazing. I plan to purchase and use many of them. Because your products seem so great, I was hoping you might have a curriculum map and/or list of topics that you teach your biology students. If you have anything of your own I could purchase or a recommendation, I would certainly appreciate the help. Thanks so much!

Hi there! It certainly does sound like you have a full plate for next year! My first piece of advice is.... Do the very best job you can do each and every day, but know that it will not be perfect and you (hopefully) will not be satisfied with the job you do. Do what you can do, but you cannot do everything in the first year. Teaching is a work in progress....you get better and better each year.

As for a curriculum map, I am afraid that I don't have much to offer there. In Tennessee where I live, we are required to teach the state objectives in the order they appear in our state framework. In my personal opinion, this order is not very logical. I have never taught in New York, but i believe I am correct is saying that the state of NY has a very strict curriculum that must be followed so that students are successful on the end of course tests, no? I would inquire at your school or check the state web site for education for a list of topics that must be covered for each of your classes.

Best of luck in your first year!

Amy... My husband loves your store and your products. He is presently using your ecology unit with his 8th graders. He says everything is there that he needs, and the power points are detailed but easy to follow. I just wanted you to know that I hear about how great this unit is all of the time! You have become a household name!

Buyer re: AP Biology Review PowerPoints Set of 25 PPTs of 3245 Slides
Amy, The AP Review look very promising & plan on purchasing all of them.
2 questions: I am NOT a computer wiz; do I need my IT guy to explain & train about "TpT" files? I have no idea what this means to me; I have 2 yr old Dell & an IPad 2.
2nd question: how do you think theses fit into the new test & curricula? This is my 2nd year in AP, however I have been teaching Biology for 8 yrs.
Thank you for your time. P.S. I am writing this from my flu sick bed :-( & talk about worrying about my AP kids!! So your reviews sound very helpful!

Hello cami11! So sorry you are sick. I hope you feel better soon. The flu ran through our school, but I think we are past the epidemic now.

First Question: The 25 PowerPoints are in a zipped file. All of my products are in zipped files, and it is extremely rare for anyone to have a problem unzipping the file. You will need some sort of software to unzip the file. WinZip is a free download that does this, but I bet your computer already has software that will open the file. If you have any trouble whatsoever with the download, I can burn the PowerPoints to a CD and mail that out to you.

Do you have Microsoft PowerPoint on your computer? If so, then you will be able to play the PowerPoints for your students without any trouble. I hook my computer to a projector, and spend a few minutes each day running through reviews.

Second Question is the million dollar question! Until we actually see a version of the new test, it is hard to know what is in and what is out! The review questions on the PowerPoint are just "content-based" questions. Example: What problems were faced by plants and animals as they transitioned from a life in water to a life on land?

I know that the type of question will be different on the new exam, but I still feel that if the student has mastery of the vast volume of information we have to teach, they will be okay. The PowerPoints do not really address the new math grid-in section of the test. I am in the process of making out review sheets for my students that include math problems from the equation sheet. It is a work in progress and I will list it on TpT when it is finished.

I do offer one of my review PowerPoints for free. Be sure to download it and look at it before you decide to buy the others. Here is the link:

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 30 years. I have taught Biology I, Honors Biology I, Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, Biology II, and AP Biology.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach "commando" style. My students are tired at the end of my class because I push to fill their brain with as much knowledge as possible. I try to employ varying teaching strategies throughout the class to keep my students interested and on their toes. My strength as a teacher and my love involves the lab. I have my students in the lab at least twice a week, and more if possible. I am currently teaching a Biology II Lab Techniques class where we spend about 90% of our time doing lab work.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In my years of teaching, I have been honored many times with local awards such as "Rotary Teacher of the Month", etc. I have been on many committees at the state level to write curricula and guidelines for the science courses taught in our state. I am consistently called upon to offer inservice activities in our school system. All of the above are very nice, but my favorite moments come from the students. I love the "light bulb" moments when I am teaching and see that students are catching on to the concepts. Since I teach mostly 12th graders, it is also extremely rewarding to have them come home from college the year after I taught them and have them tell me how much my class has helped them.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate degree is in Biology. I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have what is called in our state "Master's plus 30" which is 30 graduate hours above the Master's degree.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My teaching materials and products are the result of 30 years of experience. My materials are standards-based and emphasize inquiry and critical thinking skills. I offer a wide variety of materials that are solid in content, are visually attractive, and best of all, are ready to be copied and passed out to your students.
