Level 3 Biology
Below you will find the Yr 13 Biology calendar for the year. However, please note that things may change, especially if Auckland goes into lockdowns again.
Each block of learning is called a 'Unit'. The order in which we do these Units are:
Unit 6: Speciation (External)
Expectations for Advanced Learning
It's just a fact that the higher your attendance, the more likely you will be to succeed in all areas of school life. So as your Yr 13 Biology teacher, I take your attendance very seriously.
Every day, you must strive your best to arrive to class within 4 minutes of the start of the period.
If you are late or are absent to Yr 13 Biology, it is my responsibility to discuss the impact of your lateness or absence on your learning, and on your peers and myself as your teacher.
If you are late or are absent more than once a week, or if there is a pattern of lateness or absence, the issue will get escalated to your Hui Ako (form teacher).
Prepared & Ready to Learn
Being prepared and ready to learn is an important aspect of you managing your learning. So you must come to class with:
Something to write IN:
e.g. a 1B5 or 2B5 workbook for this subject
e.g. a laptop or tablet
Phones are NOT appropriate for note-taking.
Something to write WITH:
e.g. pencil, sharpener, and eraser
e.g. blue/black pen
Respect, Routines, & Tikanga
Teaching and learning can only happen if we respect each other and our learning space. Without respect, people feel unsafe, unwelcome, and closed off. For you to be part of this class, you must read through the Kawa below and sign our Class Contract pledging that you will try your best to follow these rules of respect.
