Middle School English  

(recommended for 7th & 8th grade)

 

This class also connects language skills to life, but delves deeper into the skills of critical thinking, logic, and argument while adding the study of diction, speaking, and persuasive writing. Instruction prepares students for success in higher-level language arts courses and skills while inspiring them with the understanding of how these skills relate directly to life. If knowledge is power, the ability to express is influence – and the ultimate measure of influence is persuasiveness.

 

Reading and Writing instruction takes on the additional study of structure, genre, and literary device, teaching how to use these elements to identify and express theme while increasing the full persuasive power of presentation. Grammar skills continue to deepen, building upon previous knowledge.

Freshman/Sophomore High School Honors English 

(recommended for 9th & 10th grade)

 

 This course more deeply connects language skills to life, influence, and civic involvement by adding instruction in rhetoric and casual academic debate to the mix of instruction. Students will learn the fundamentals of self-expression and exercise them in both writing and speech. Study of literature will focus on classics, examining skills and ideas through the words of history’s great writers and teachers.

 

With its study of rhetoric and strong emphasis on cross-curricular connections, this class gives students the keys to powerful self-expression; students cannot help but find this emerging power exciting! Of course, it also equips them for success in higher-level endeavors and courses both academically and personally. With high value placed on one’s ability to think critically, students find the ability to filter all information through their own personal worldview. Emphasis on articulate expression allows them to persuasively and powerfully communicate their own, unique thoughts.

By the end of their senior year, the student will have a strong sense of how these skills support all other academic, personal, and professional endeavors as well as civic involvement.

 

With its emphasis on testing and college-preparedness, this class is best-suited for students intending to further their studies in college. Students complete college-level work in a highly-supportive high school environment. Students can adjust to the grading, testing, and time management demands of college while gaining experience in the types of writing tasks they will be expected to master.

Mrs. Taylor, the instructor of General Science, will use in-class discussions and many experiments to engage students in learning the concepts listed above.  In class quizzes will be given at random.  Power point presentations will be assigned at the end of each semester.  Lab reports will be part of each lab assignment.  Other brief reports/assignments will be scattered depending upon the subject matter.

 

Required Text and Materials: 

Apologia Exploring Creation with General Science, 2nd Ed. 

Note:  The text used for this class is a 7th grade text, however, 6th and 8th graders are permitted to register

College ruled composition notebook, 3 ring binder with loose leaf paper and divider pages with pockets.

Optional: Solutions Manual (for parents), Apologia Exploring Creation with General Science, 2nd ed., audio book

 

Independent Study:  Students can expect to be assigned about 4 hours per week of independent work to be completed throughout the week.  This time will be spent reading the text, completing lab reports, answering text review questions, and completing take-home tests.  Select labs (those requiring a few hours or a few days to view results) will be assigned to perform at home.  It is recommended that students review the study guide and vocabulary in groups prior to each test.

Physical Science  

(recommended 8th grade and up) 

 

This course contains one semester of introductory Chemistry and one semester of introductory Physics.  We will meet once a week for an hour and a half.  New in 2011 will be a concentration on developing the skills necessary to study high school science.  We will be spending time learning how to take the multitude of information the text presents and break it down into manageable chunks for studying.
 

Course topics first semester will include:  metric system, proper lab reports and experimental design, matter, atomic structure, the periodic table and chemical reactions.  Second semester topics include: work, fluid mechanics, statics, dynamics, and energy.  The course will explore these two disciplines using hands on activities, projects, discussions and applications.  Students should expect to spend 3-4 hours per week outside of class time on assignments.  No prerequisites are necessary, but concurrent enrollment in Algebra 1 is recommended.

Required Text: 

  • Physical Science: Concepts in Action, by Wysession, Frank, and Yancopoulos.  Prentice Hall. ISBN-13 # 978-0-13-362817-3

High School Honors Biology 

 

Prerequisites:  There is no math component to this course.  This course is typically taken after physical science and before chemistry, but the order is flexible.

 

This class will cover major concepts in high school biology as detailed in the Kentucky Academic Expectations for Science as published by the Kentucky Department of Education.  These concepts include:  basic cell structure, osmosis, diffusion, photosynthesis, classification, Kreb’s cycle, glycolysis, transcription, translation, mitosis, genetics, and evolution.  Although evolution is a touchy subject, Mrs. Taylor feels it advantageous for her students to know the concepts so that they may successfully defend or refute them since they will be tested on them in standardized college testing as well as encounter them in the college classroom---not just in science classes.  She will approach evolution using the textbook as well as a Christian paperback, Case for a Creator.

 

Mrs. Taylor, the instructor of Biology, will use in-class discussions and many experiments to engage students in learning the concepts listed above.  In class quizzes will be given at random.  Powerpoint presentations will be assigned at the end of first semester.  Brief reports/summaries will be scattered depending upon the subject matter.  There will be in-class finals each semester.

 

Required Text and Materials: 

  • Biology, Pearson Prentice Hall, Miller and Levine ISBN# 0-13-036701-X

  • Case for a Creator by Lee Strobel, student edition, ISBN# 0-310-24977-5  

Students will also need a 3-ring binder with loose leaf and two composition books.
