I use this student check sheet in my Biology Interactive Notebook. I have arranged all of the North Carolina unpacked standards from the current curriculum that will be covered in the unit. My regular Biology students will write down the page number of the interactive notebook where they can find the standard. My honors students will summarize, write out formulas, or answer the unpacked standard. Students can use this sheet to study for teacher made exams and the NC State Final (EOC) at the end of the year. I found my students feel more confident if they know what they are responsible for.
I set up my semester with 9 units.
1- Molecular Biology
3- Energy (Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration)
4- Mitosis and Meiosis
5- Protein Synthesis
9 - Ecology
