  • Hi Biostudents,

    Remember to click attendance each day and answer true.  The same assignments remain for 17.1 and 17.2, you will find them on Skyward and Pearson eText.  Each morning I reopen Skyward assignments with low grades so study and try them again.  17.1 and 17.2 assignments are due by 4/16.

    I will post 17.3 and 17.4 this weekend, they will be available for 7 days from posting.

    Keep up the good work and stay safe!

  • 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.
