Here is how I pace the school year when teaching 9th grade biology. I always use a short power point to discuss with the students what we will be covering for the school year. I have also included a Biology Guide Grading Sheet. Students are made accountable by tracking their own grades and keeping a form for each marking period in their notebook. It is required that they keep Biology Notebooks and this really does help them with high school organization skills. Since this is editable you can change it up however you would like.
