A work day for you.
You should have your 3rd blog/reflection done. You should be completely done 1 subtopic of resources. You should be almost completing a second subtopic. You should have started creating a test bank (not the IB one silly people)

Study for the quest next class. 6,6 and ALL of 11
Sunday 12 (ABCD)
Today is the last of the regular topic work. I hope to get through the fertilization and birth components of 11.4 today. I really liked being able to use the drawn biology from the hormone control lesson. I have another one that we will work through and then wrap up with the lecture.
I will be checking your final 11.4 notes for this class as well.
Also, please bring back the documents for the Independent study permission ASAP, let's say no later than Tuesday. I have emailed them to you, so you should have the final copy.
Tuesday 14 (DABC)
If we need to, we will wrap us 11.4, but I think we will be done.
At this point we will set up our sites for the independent study, make our checklists and set some goals for the week.
Homework - Begin work on subtopic 1 of the option.
Thursday 16 (CDAB)
Work day on option. Website should be up to date, goals should be posted, and you should be working on subtopic 1.
Sunday 5 (CDAB)
The last of the of the topics...11.4. Genesis 2017 or something of the such.
I will also be checking 6.6 and 11.4 notes at this point.
Please have that notes document ready to be submitted too...it's getting real.
Wednesday 8 (BCDA)
Continuing from where we left off...it's 4 classes of knowledge and it all depends on you how far we get and how much we cover...
Homework - Get Independent Study Docs signed...no questions, get it done.
Monday 30 (ABCD)
Well, congrats for the completion of yet another massive hurdle in IB. Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel? I think there are just about 20 classes until it's done...20.
Today we will start with the 6.6 content. Time to label some organs people.
Take this topic with the maturity I know you are capable of. It isn't easy (complexity and content) and if you don't look at it scientifically, and not like a middle schooler, then the next couple weeks will not be fun.
Be ready to get it done. Home stretch...stay on point people.
Wednesday 1 (DABC)
Today we will finish off 6.6. It's all about the hormones. You need to know positive and negative feedback loops. SO much fun!
Monday 2 (CDAB)
One class, one topic. Today we will go through Topic 1 and maybe even dig into topic 2. I have review documents for you and practice challenges.
Wednesday 4 (BCDA)
Topic 2. Moving along people...T minus next to no time.
Monday 12 (ABCD)
Today we will wrap up 11.3 as a final chunk. I want to make sure that we understand the mechanics of the nephron and also to lock down feedback loops. Should be pretty clear.
Make sure your 11.3 notes are done.
Wednesday 14 (DABC)
We have a revision day for 11.2 and 11.3 scheduled. I think we will throw in a 6.6 start (hormones) as well. Just to put the nail in that last push before mocks.
Start studying. Start studying now.
