Welcome to Biology!
Welcome to Biology I/Biology Honors!
My name is Ms. Morgan and I am your instructor. Biology is a required credit for high school graduation and I will help you achieve this goal. Remember I am here to guide you to success as we cover relevant and interesting topics that will be tested on the state's end of course exam.
Our classroom is a learning environment designed for each biology student to succeed. Your attendance, engagement and studious behavior is necessary at all times. Each day we will learn and practice biology concepts that allow you to do activities and labs with your peers! Ask questions, try your best, and get busy!
The Class Syllabus is located on this page and under the syllabus tab. Please refer to the syllabus for class policies and procedures.

We are a CAR-PD Classroom.......What is CAR-PD?
CAR-PD stands for Content Area Reading - Professional Development. The CAR-PD designation on a course indicates that the instructor is trained to incorporate reading strategies in the daily curriculum of the course. CAR-PD students learn the subject being studied as well as develop additional reading skills that will help improve their FSA Reading scores. CAR-PD strategies are research-based and have been shown to greatly improve student learning and reading ability.
The State of Florida sets the requirements for placing students in remedial reading classes. Students who have high level 2 reading scores can be eligible for CAR-PD classes (rather than having to take a year of remedial reading). This frees up an elective period in their schedule, enabling students to select an elective of their choice.
CAR-PD classes do not cover a watered down curriculum and are not "reserved" for students needing reading remediation. CAR-PD simply indicates that the teacher is CAR certified and is able to incorporate reading strategies within the course curriculum. These strategies are good for all students, not just those needing extra help in the area of reading.
