Do Not Plan For Biology!… It is Already Done For You!

Are you getting anxious about planning for the start of the school year?

While I was scrolling through my facebook feed I noticed many teachers are beginning to gear up for the next school year and some have already started back. I walked into the store the other day and my stomach dropped a little bit when I saw the back-to-school supplies and I had the urge to start gearing up as well.

However, I reminded myself to relax because I am planned for the entire year. Not just for the first day or week but for the entire year. I have spent the last two years after work, weekends and the summers building a biology curriculum to solve a major problem in education. Time!

 

Throughout my entire graduate program in curriculum and instruction there was a common theme among all teachers in the program. There is never enough time to do what we need to do!  On top of the day to day struggles with time, add in all of the initiatives administration wants to implement (that are  usually not sufficiently researched or tested) and teachers are left with their heads spinning and anxiety setting in.

I can imagine that is the source of anxiety for many of us as we return to school.

 

Last year I had the opportunity to have the convenience of  this biology curriculum and I must say it was a game changer, not just for my work life but for my life after work as well. At work, I could spend my time focusing on student learning, grading assessments, using data to improve my instruction and targeting students with specific needs to help them achieve.

At home, I was far less stressed and was able to enjoy my time with my wife and two kids. I didn’t have to grade papers at dance class. The papers were already graded because I had time during planning/prep because I was already planned out for the year. I could actually watch my daughter practice.

 

I know the rigorous curriculum is going to challenge your students and help build your repertoire
your instructional practices. I have made every effort to ensure all of the things you asked for in the survey were included.

In addition, the curriculum is going to improve with the feedback from the founders (you). The overall goal is to create the best possible biology curriculum with community of teachers all supporting the growth of the curriculum and eachother. Do not miss out on your chance to be a founding member.

 

If you are new teacher, a teacher who hasn’t taught biology in years,  a teacher that just wants to try a new approach, a teacher with 4 preps and just want one less to worry about then this is the biology curriculum for you.

In the creation of the curriculum the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were used as a guide. I have experience teaching in two different states and have met people through from all corners of the country at various conferences and training. When we discuss biology curriculum, there a minor difference if any at all in the foundations that we are teaching and those foundations drive this curriculum.


As an “Exemplary Employee of the Year ” recipient in a school district with 1200+ teachers, I am excited to share with you the same instructional strategies I used that allowed be to be recognized.

I have finally been able to package this curriculum for others to use and continue to build on it regularly. We are still in the final stages of testing and tweaking the technical aspect of this website and will launch the biology curriculum on August 10th.
Here is your first two weeks of school already planned out:
