The formation of my biology curriculum has been a journey that includes years of designing, fine-tuning, collaborations, researching, and FUN!
Here are some things I did NOT want in my curriculum:
Heavy language that blocked students ability to absorb the material.
Items that lacked visuals or were not aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Materials that did not bring home the message.
Outdated material or items that had terms I did not use in my classroom.
Materials that were not relevant or engaging.
Here’s what I did want in my curriculum:
Activities that reach a wide variety of learners and provide differentiation.
Resources that are designed for student comprehension.
Materials that offer adaptability so they can work in a wide variety of classrooms.
Materials that are designed to be aesthetically pleasing (but not overwhelming to the eye).
Engaging and effective resources.
What can you expect?
Here are some types of items that are included in the curriculum and bundles:
Task cards that can be used as bellringers, exit tickets, small group work or review.
Study Guides and other review material such as games (“trashketball”; I have Who Has)
Optional Interactive Notebook (includes its own separate pacing guide if you choose to incorporate.)
Each unit plan comes with a suggested pacing guide to help keep you organized. Editable resources and adaptability? Yes! Some of the resources are PowerPoints or MS Word docs.
A little about me…
Hi! I’m Vanessa. I’m a creative and critical thinker. I taught public school for nearly a decade; and began creating curricula from scratch because the text book did not reach my diverse learners. The biology curriculum I offer is tried and true, and the work of many years! It has been used in hundreds of classrooms across the world.
