Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary class.
It embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study including science, economy, politics and geography. Environmental science concepts covered in this course include ecology, resources, human population, over-consumption, waste management, pollution, and sustainable alternatives.
This is a web based class with a lab component. Students will be required to read, take notes, and apply concepts in weekly assessments.
In addition, each student will design and conduct a long term experiment, with guidance from the teacher that will be peer reviewed and used as a portion of the final grade.
The goal of Environmental Science is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to:
- understand the interrelationships of the natural world
- identify and analyze environmental problems, both natural and human-made
- evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems
- examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them
Students will be prepared to take the AP Exam in Environmental Science on their own after the completion of this course.
Student will be required to complete approximately 3-4 hours of homework outside of the weekly classes. Most assignments can be printed and uploaded for grading.
Registration deadline is September 15, 2021
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
The evidence is there!
If your child is interested in crimes, the “who’s done it” and why, this this class is a go!!
My daughter loves the Forensics class taught by Mrs. Pope.. She even has the textbook that Mrs. Pope is using in the classroom even though all the lessons are provided in the CANVAS because she wanted to read everything Mrs. Pope does. In fact, this is the third class that Mrs. Pope has taught her! Mrs. Pope continue to provide engaging lessons that make her thinks and process the mysteries and crimes. She even points out “mistakes” in a TV crime series we watch when they are investigating the crime scenes . Mrs. Pope provides hands on math and science into the lab experiments that help reinforcing what is being taught in the lessons.
So, that's where they live!!!
After taking the Dig Deep Marine Biology course, my daughter wanted to take more ocean related classes.. She was so thrilled to find out she could take Big Blue with Mrs. Pope. Mrs. Pope continued to do a wonderful job providing hands on projects that expanded her knowledge and love more marine biology life. If you have a child who is interested in how the ocean works or wants to get into a marine field, this class is great to take!
Dive right into this!
This was the first interactive online class our daughter took with Mrs. Pope and she wound up hooked! She was ready for class early every week and was even upset when a “vacation day” happened because she so wanted to be in class.
The most memorable piece was how this class was able to be taught anywhere. On dissection day, our family had an emergency and one of my friends offered to allow my daughter to bring all of her dissection materials to her home so the class wouldn’t be missed. Her three sons heard about what was being dissected and observed the class and started asking questions themselves. It’s amazing how one’s love of a class can become contagious! Thank you, OTA, for making classes be taught anywhere!
My daughter has really enjoyed this class taught by Ms. Sarah. It is an engaging and creative class, filled with conservation, ecology and building a better earth/world. It has given my conservation minded daughter more information to grow with and ways to make things better for those around her. Ms. Sarah is truly a wonderful, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable teacher. She enjoys teaching and her passion for science is just wonderful.
My son loves the Forensics class taught by Ms. Sarah. He is fully engaged in the class and has learning so much from it. He enjoys the hands on activities and “solving” the mysteries/crimes. It is great to see him get excited about a class. Ms. Sarah is truly a great teacher. She is super easy to talk to and loves receiving questions. She has an energy that is just wonderful for this age!
