Welcome to Mrs. Sams' Biology I Honors Science Class!
Hi, I am Shannon Sams, and I am happy to have this opportunity to serve our wonderful community at ABEMC! I have taught in public schools for twelve years and look forward to working with my early college learners at ABEMC.
It is exciting to see my students progress throughout the semester and I ALWAYS encourage parental involvement to help facilitate their child's success. Should you have any questions, and/or concerns throughout this semester, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
During the course of study classes will be engaged in learning four major units. Prescribed NCDPI topics include Structure and Function of Living Organisms, Ecosystems, Evolution and Genetics and Molecular Biology. We will be engaged in laboratory investigations, Cornell note taking, cooperative learning, presentations, and more. We will be using the standard grading scale of 90-100=A, 80-89=B, etc. and grades will consist of the following: Tests/Quizzes: 50%, Labs: 25%, Projects: 15%, and Homework/Classwork: 10% . In addition, there will be state End-of-Course Exam (EOC) which will be given as the semester final in May.
