3D History: WWII- The Early War, Fall of France- Blitzkrieg 1940 (1 PM)

Quarter 1,2: Starts on September 10, 2021

Class Time: 1:00 pm      Duration: 115 min

Instructor: Taliesin Knol

Grade Range: 8th-12th

Prerequisites: None

Why read about key military battles on maps or in books when you can learn about them hands-on, in three dimensions, using historical miniature gaming? In 3D History, pivotal engagements come alive for new and experienced students, as they navigate a table-top terrain, deploy hundreds of miniature soldiers, ships, and tanks... all while playing a military strategy game. Each student will have the opportunity to fight a battle from both sides, allowing them to test various strategies, try multiple scenarios, predict different outcomes, and rewrite history- an effective way to gain a deeper understanding of what actually happened and why!

After years of "appeasement" of Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime, in 1939, after the invasion of Poland, France and Britain had no choice but to declare war. This was the official start of the Second World War. The problem then became clear, neither country was properly prepared to meet the German menace head on. Economic troubles meant dwindling military budgets left both forces either undersized, like the British Expeditionary Force, or woefully under trained and ill-equipped, like the French army. This presented several problems, France being so obviously unwilling to come to her allies' aid, meant countries like Belgium refused to plan cooperative defenses, for fear of provoking the very invasion they sought to defend against. And so, in 1940, after a year of so-called "phony-war" during which Poland was conquered by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, the inevitable invasion found the Allies totally unprepared for the modern and ferocious "lighting war." After rushing into Belgium, the best of the Allied troops were encircled by the Germans, cut off, and forced to flee at Dunkirk. In just six weeks, France would fall leaving Britain to stand against Hitler alone. This class will attempt to follow the major battles of the Fall of France week by week. We will recreate the armored invasions by land, hunt German raiders above and below the surface of the Atlantic, and take to the skies for the Battle of Britain.

Note: This is a 1 hour, 55 minute class with a 10-minute break part way through.

Topics in this Series: WWII- The Early War, Fall of France- Blitzkrieg 1940 (Semester 1) and WWII- The Early War, Rise of Japan (Semester 2).

Quarter 4: Starts on March 22, 2022

Class Time: 11:00 am      Duration: 55 min

Instructor: Judith Harmon

Grade Range: 3rd-5th

Prerequisites:

Kids take to the stage as they collaboratively write and perform their very own play with unique characters and an original storyline. From dawn to dusk, what happened to make an ordinary weekday turn into a fabulously funny, frivolous, freaky Friday?

Students will begin with improvisational games to get to know each other, then read through the two, prepared scripts together. Through group activities and guided discussion, they will create new characters, brainstorm variations, craft plot changes, add lines, and cast their parts. The instructor will then update and customize the class script with the students' input.

The class will learn the practical aspects of acting, as they work on script read-through, blocking, costume/prop design, and planning the show. Students will develop their own "actor's toolkit" of voice, body, and imagination in this creative process! Actors will grow in confidence and communication skills in preparation for a final sharing with parents on the final day of the quarter.

Once the script is fully developed with everyone's parts, about half-way through the quarter, it will be emailed to parents. Parents will be expected to help their children memorize their script/lines/cues and assemble a simple make-at-home costume, ideally from clothing items and accessories you already own and a little creativity. Note: Students who are emerging readers (not able to read at a 3rd/4th grade level) would be better suited to the Young Actor's Playhouse class, rather than this level.

Through group activities and guided discussion, they will create new characters, brainstorm variations, craft plot changes, add lines, and cast their parts. The instructor will then update and customize the class script with the students' input.

The class will learn the practical aspects of acting, as they work on script read-through, blocking, costume/prop design, and planning the show. Students will develop their own "actor's toolkit" of voice, body, and imagination in this creative process! Actors will grow in confidence and communication skills in preparation for a final sharing with parents on the final day of the quarter.

Once the script is fully developed with everyone's parts, about half-way through the quarter, it will be emailed to parents. Parents will be expected to help their children memorize their script/lines/cues and assemble a simple make-at-home costume, ideally from clothing items and accessories you already own and a little creativity. Note: Students who are emerging readers (not able to read at a 3rd/4th grade level) would be better suited to the Young Actor's Playhouse class, rather than this level.

Topics in this Series: Secrets and Spies (Quarter 1), Time Travel Tale (Quarter 2), Super Duper New Superheroes (Quarter 3), and Freaky Friday (Quarter 4).

    American Sign Language (ASL) I

    Quarter 1,2,3,4: Starts on September 10, 2021

    Class Time: 12:00 pm      Duration: 55 min

    Instructor: Sagar Kothari

    Grade Range: 8th-12th

    Prerequisites:

    Are you interested in learning a new language that is used right here in America? Are you intrigued by a modern language that has no written form? Do you want to find out why American Sign Language is much more closely linked to French Sign Language than British Sign Language? If so, American Sign Language (ASL) is a great language for you! In this class, students will learn the basic skills in production and comprehension of ASL while covering thematic units such as personal and family life, school, social life, and community. Each unit will include presentations and readings on Deaf culture and Deaf history. Students will learn fingerspelling and numbers, developing conversational ability, culturally appropriate behaviors, and fundamental ASL grammar. Class time will be dedicated to interactive ASL activities and face-to-face signing practice with the instructor and partners.

    ASL students will have a Deaf instructor. He regularly teaches all-hearing classes and is an excellent role model for students to meet and interact with a native speaker of ASL and to lean natural facial expressions, gestures, and body language used in Deaf communications. ASL students will have more confidence when they encounter Deaf instructors in college or greet speakers of ASL in social settings. Because the instructor is Deaf, students are not permitted to speak aloud in class. This approach improves visual attention and encourages immersion in the language. Students will be able to ask questions of the instructor by writing on individual white boards, but they will be encouraged to sign in order to communicate with the instructor. Lessons are facilitated with Power Point presentations, and a professional ASL interpreter will assist the class on the first day of class. Enrolled students are not expected to know any sign language prior to beginning ASL I.

    Hundreds of colleges and universities, including all public institutions of higher learning in Virginia, accept ASL as a distinct foreign language. This allows hearing and Deaf students to fulfill foreign language requirements for admission to college. Teens who have difficulty writing, spelling, or have challenging pronunciation in English, can be successful with ASL as a second or foreign language choice. Penn State University research demonstrated that the visual and kinesthetic elements of ASL helped to enhance the vocabulary, spelling, and reading skills in hearing students.

    Workload: Students should expect to spend 2-3 hours each week outside of class on required vocabulary exercises, readings, and signing practice.

    Assignments: Homework assignments will be posted online in the Canvas digital classroom platform. There may be some brief written assignments, but for most homework assignments, students will be asked to post short videos of themselves signing. Students will need either a camera phone or webcam to complete these assignments. They will use the Go React platform to upload their signing videos so the instructor can make comments/leave feedback in ASL and English.

    Assessments: The instructor will assign points using a class rubric for the parent's use in assigning a course grade. Course rubrics will evaluate students on their sign production, fingerspelling, ASL grammar, facial expressions including "above the nose" grammar (brows and body movement), and "below the nose" modifiers (lip expressions).

    Textbook: Students should purchase or rent "Signing Naturally Units 1-6 workbook" (ISBN# 978-1581212105) which includes a DVD or signing videos. This class will cover units 1-4.

    Supply Fee: There is a $60.00 supply fee for the student license to the GoReact assessment platform.

    Credit: Homeschool families may wish to count this course as a full credit in World Languages for purposes of a high school transcript.

    7 students must enroll in order for this class to be held. Price: $697.00

    Instructor: Sagar Kothari

    Grade Range: 9th-12th

    Prerequisites: ASL I

    Students of ASL will continue to improve their fluency in this 2nd year course. As students become more advanced signers, emphasis will be on focusing on the meaning of a conversation (whole) rather than individual signs (parts). In conversation, students will learn to confirm information by asking questions in context. Second year students will continue to build their vocabulary, apply ASL grammar, and will learn to make requests, ask for advice, give opinions, make comparisons and use superlatives, and narrate stories. Other skills covered in ASL II include expressing year, phone numbers, time, and currency in numbers, appearance, clothing, giving directions, locations, etc. Each unit will include presentations and readings on Deaf culture and Deaf history. Class time will be dedicated to interactive ASL activities and signing practice.

    Instructor: Taliesin Knol

    Grade Range: 9th-12th

    Prerequisites:

    This class will explore the judicial processes of the ancient world, starting with Ancient Greece. Students will learn how justice was carried out in a time before codified written legal systems, prisons, lawyers, or even formal judges existed and where the facts of your case depended entirely on how well your rhetoric could convince hundreds of your fellow citizens that would serve on a jury. Like a traditional mock trial program, the class will hear cases, and students will defend themselves, but will be expected to do so as an Ancient Greek citizen would have, through open debate. Real historical cases will be studied and trial parts assigned to the class, which will be debated from the perspective of both citizen and non-citizen residents of an ancient Polis. The class will serve as the jury and, if necessary, select period-appropriate verdicts and explain how they arrived at their decisions.

    Art History: Catacombs to Cathedrals, Western Art Part 1 (Honors or On-Level)

    Quarter 3,4: Starts on January 14, 2022

    Class Time: 11:00 am      Duration: 55 min

    Instructor: Dr. Erica Hughes

    Grade Range: 9th-12th

    Prerequisites:

    Students will travel through time and around the world in this survey of the history of art! The class will look at images of art as religious icons, records of historical events, myths, portraits, propaganda, conveyors of power and authority, and fantasy to answer the big question, "What is the function of art aside from being aesthetically pleasing?" Students will be asked to predict how their definition of art will change throughout the course of the year.

    This unique exploration of art history will be enlivened by rich class discussions, projects, visits to exhibits, and the instructor's own creative style and personal experience at significant historical sites throughout the ancient world. Following the AP syllabus for this course, students will learn about the people and concepts behind each type of art, considering that the conditions of the time influenced the art and architecture: physical location, settlement, innovation, warfare, politics, beliefs, religion, funerary practices, and interconnections to other, contemporary cultures.

    This study of the history of art will begin with the earliest known Christian art, and how its symbols evolved from Old Testament figures while still illegal. The image of Jesus will be traced from a young shepherd reminiscent of Apollo, to a stern Byzantine pantokrator, to a threatening Romanesque judge, to the caring and almost human Gothic hippy Christ. Covering the thousand years from the secretive catacombs of 200 AD through the height of Gothic architecture, the class will examine cross-cultural and pan-European elements of artworks and architecture. Next the study of art will take students to the East, to see the various influences in Byzantine art. Students will learn about the techniques of mosaic and see the grandeur of the Orthodox relics and icons. The influence of contact with Islam through the Crusades will be seen in the periods of iconoclasm.

    After considering the differences between Islamic and Muslim arts, the students' exploration will move into the Early Medieval Period to investigate Carolingian and Ottonian painting, furniture and tapestries, and how these were based upon a desire to emulate those of the Roman Empire. The return of sculpture through decorative capitals enclosing cloisters and tympana covering the entranceways to churches is seen in the Romanesque Period, named for the first universalizing style across all of Europe. Finally, the class will reach the Gothic period across Europe to discuss the origins of its name, modifications to cathedrals across the early high and decadent Gothic periods, and compare French with English Gothic styles.

    Levels:This course is offered at two levels, On-Level and Honors. They have different workloads, but meet together. Honors students will work at a university freshman level, while on-level students will use the same textbook, but will have less homework.

    Topics in this Series: Caves to Colosseum, Prehistoric to Ancient Art (Semester 1), Catacombs to Cathedrals, Western Art Part 1 (Semester 2), Renaissance to Recent, Western Art Part 2 (Semester 3), Asia to Africa, Non-Western Art (Semester 4) Workload: Honors students should expect to spend 2-3 hours per week outside of class; on-level students should expect to spend 1 hour outside of class. Assignments: The Canvas online class management system will be used to post assignments, quizzes, and scores. Students should have their own e-mail address to be set up users of the Canvas system. Parents can also be set up as Canvas guests/observers for purposes of tracking the student's progress and workload. For each chapter, there will be open book quizzes, and students should be able to describe their three favorite works. There will be a semester project based on the creation of one's own myth and culture. Image recognition is key to learning art history. Each semester, students will be assigned approximately 60 images to identify on the midterm and final. On-level students should be able to identify the art or object by style. Honors students are expected to learn the name, description and compare/contrast the images. Assessments: Points will be assigned for projects, quizzes, chapter summaries, and exams, and parents may use the total points earned to assign a class grade. Quizzes will be administered through Canvas. Textbook: Students should purchase or rent Gardner's Art through the Ages: A Global History, 15th Edition by Fred Kleiner (ISBN 13- 978-285754994). Registration. All students will register online for the same course. Students must designate their intent to take the On-Level or Honors by the first week of class. Once the course has begun, students may move down a level (from Honors to on-level) at any time. However, once classes have begun, students may not "bump up" a level.

The class will look at images of art as religious icons, records of historical events, myths, portraits, propaganda, conveyors of power and authority, and fantasy to answer the big question, "What is the function of art aside from being aesthetically pleasing?" Students will be asked to predict how their definition of art will change throughout the course of the year.

    This unique exploration of art history will be enlivened by rich class discussions, projects, virtual visits to exhibits, and the instructor's own creative style and personal experience at significant historical sites throughout the ancient world. Students will learn about the people and concepts behind each type of art, considering that the conditions of the time influenced the art and architecture: physical location, settlement, innovation, warfare, politics, beliefs, religion, funerary practices, and interconnections to other, contemporary cultures.

    This study of the history of art will begin with prehistoric art through Paleolithic examples (image making, cave painting, etc); Neolithic art, created as humans settled into communities such as Jericho and Catalhoyuk; and Megalithic remains like Stonehenge. The class will then move into Near Eastern art looking at examples from around the Fertile Crescent region: Sumerian, Akkadian, Neo-Sumerian, Babylonian, Hittite, Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, and Sasanian. Next, the study of art will take students to ancient Egypt where art was dominated for millennia by their religion, the ruling pharaohs, and a belief in the afterlife giving them embellish rock-cut tombs, elaborate pyramids, and intricate sarcophagi.

    After Egypt, the students' exploration will move into Aegean art including the funeral Cycladic art, Minoan art with frescoes and palaces, and Mycenaean art with its bold fortresses and celebrated Cyclopean masonry. The class will survey the influential art and architecture of Ancient Greece covering the Greek Geometric, Orientalizing, Archaic, Classical, Late Classical, and Hellenistic periods with its emphasis on form, balance, harmony, and an idealized human form on vases, statues, temples, and monuments. Next, students will journey across the Mediterranean to examine Etruscan art and architecture in the Orientalizing and Archaic periods, recognized by terra-cottas, sarcophagi, and bronze sculpture. Finally, the class will reach ancient Rome to view its art and architecture across several periods including the Roman Republic, Early Empire, High Empire, and Late Empire, with emphasis on painting styles, mosaics, and architecture spanning the typical Roman home, triumphal arches, public arenas, and aqueducts.

    Levels:This course is offered at two levels, On-Level and Honors. They have different workloads, but meet together. Honors students will work at a university freshman level, while on-level students will use the same textbook, but will have less homework.

    Topics in this Series: Caves to Colosseum, Prehistoric to Ancient Art (Semester 1), Catacombs to Cathedrals, Western Art Part 1 (Semester 2), Renaissance to Recent, Western Art Part 2 (Semester 3), Asia to Africa, Non-Western Art (Semester 4) Workload: Honors students should expect to spend 2-3 hours per week outside of class; on-level students should expect to spend 1 hour outside of class. Assignments: The Canvas online class management system will be used to post assignments, quizzes, and scores. Students should have their own e-mail address to be set up users of the Canvas system. Parents can also be set up as Canvas guests/observers for purposes of tracking the student's progress and workload. For each chapter, there will be open book quizzes, and students should be able to describe their three favorite works. There will be a semester project based on the creation of one's own myth and culture. Image recognition is key to learning art history. Each semester, students will be assigned approximately 60 images to identify on the midterm and final. On-level students should be able to identify the art or object by style. Honors students are expected to learn the name, description and compare/contrast the images. Assessments: Points will be assigned for projects, quizzes, chapter summaries, and exams, and parents may use the total points earned to assign a class grade. Quizzes will be administered through Canvas. Textbook: Students should purchase or rent Gardner's Art through the Ages: A Global History, 15th Edition by Fred Kleiner (ISBN 13- 978-285754994). Registration. All students will register online for the same course. Students must designate their intent to take the On-Level or Honors by the first week of class. Once the course has begun, students may move down a level (from Honors to on-level) at any time. However, once classes have begun, students may not "bump up" a level.

    Instructor: Sandra Preaux

    Grade Range: 9th-12th

    Prerequisites:

    A tsunami threatens Sumatra. A cyclone strikes the Solomon Islands. High tides hit Hilton Head. Sub-zero temps settle over Sugar Land, Texas. Atmospheric and oceanic phenomena are in the news every single day!

    Are there any forces on earth more powerful or influential than atmospheric and oceanic sciences? These fields affect almost every aspect of human existence, and understanding them can answer questions from, 'Should I bring an umbrella today?' to 'How deadly will this year's drought be in Dakar?' and 'How will changes in the Gulf Stream affect the migration and mating of Minke Whales?' Atmospheric science is an interdisciplinary field that applies geology, astronomy, physics and chemistry to meteorology, climatology and environmental science.

    In this year-long laboratory science course, students will explore the fields of Atmospheric Science first semester and Oceanic Science second semester. Atmospheric Science is the study of the physical and chemical aspects of the atmosphere which can encompass a wide variety of topics such as weather forecasting, climate change, air quality, etc. Key themes in the study of Atmospheric Science include the gas laws (temperature, pressure, volume) and air movement (buoyancy, angular momentum). Students will learn about the spectra of sunlight, reflection and refraction, and evaluate how surfaces respond to sunlight. The class will also learn about the tools of atmospheric science, such as weather instruments, rain gage, anemometer, thermometer, and barometer, and how to read weather maps and forecast hurricane paths.

    Oceanography is the study of the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the ocean. Key themes in oceanography include ocean-land interaction, atmosphere-ocean interactions (such as El Nino and La Nina cycles), wave motion, tidal cycles, currents, and thermohaline circulation. The class will consider water chemistry and the oceanic carbon cycle. Finally, students will learn how we measure and map the ocean and use earth system computer models.

    Weekly discussions will be paired with labs. Some lab assignments will take multiple weeks, and some will use computers and a spreadsheet to analyze publicly available data.

    Note: This class has a Tuesday, in-person lecture section from 10:00 am - 10:55 am in addition to the Friday lab section from 10:00 am - 11:25 am

    Class Time: 12:00 pm      Duration: 55 min

    Instructor: Taliesin Knol

    Grade Range: 6th-8th

    Prerequisites:

    Students will learn the basic history of the Civil War, with a focus on the bloodiest battle ever fought on American soil, the three days at Gettysburg. Gettysburg would be the last major offensive action by the Confederate Army on Union soil, shattering the myth of Lee's invincibility on the field and signaling the beginning of the Confederacy's downfall.

    Students will engage in a hands-on 3D battle strategy game using the military dioramas that they make! Using artistic model-making techniques, hand tools, paint, and miniatures, each student will craft a 10 X 16 diorama. In class, they will view historical maps, artistic renderings, and/or photographs to understand the topography and development of this time and place in history. Students will customize their dioramas with landforms, landscape elements, waterways, and structures to represent a scene from this period. Once individual projects are constructed, students will populate them with 1:72 scale miniature figures. Students will combine their dioramas alongside those of their classmates to approximate a larger battlefield. Students will spend the remainder of the quarter learning about the tactics and outcomes of the military engagement while playing a table-top strategy game. Student strategists will use a simplified version of the Fire and Fury historical war gaming rule system for moving troops and equipment. Along with their classmates, students will see how this battle progressed and test different outcome scenarios that might have occurred with different battlefield choices. Each student will have at least one board and set of miniatures to take home with them.

    Course documents such as maps, game rules and all other instructional media will be available via a Google Drive link which will be emailed to parents. There is a $20.00 materials fee payable to the instructor on the first day of class. Topics in this year's series include: Revolutionary War- Lexington & Concord (Quarter 1); The Alamo & the Mexican-American War (Quarter 2); The Civil War, Battle of Gettysburg (Quarter 3); and The Spanish-American War, Invasion of San Juan Hill, Cuba (Quarter 4)

    Instructor: Taliesin Knol

    Grade Range: 6th-8th

    Prerequisites:

    Remember the Alamo! No? We'll fix that. The US did not always extend from sea to shining sea, and it would take several conflicts with Mexico to make that so. First was the Texas Revolution, in which Texas sought its independence from Mexico. It was this conflict that gave us the Alamo, often portrayed as a heroic last stand in the face of overwhelming odds. (That was only partially true.) Next was the Mexican-American War, in which the United States gained not only Texas, but also the California territory which included all the land from Texas to the Pacific. This class will focus heavily on US westward expansion and how the conquest of California and Texas added fuel to the eventual fire of the American Civil War.

    Battle Strategies & Dioramas: The Revolutionary War- Lexington & Concord (WED)

    Quarter 1: Starts on September 8, 2021

    Class Time: 12:00 pm      Duration: 55 min

    Instructor: Taliesin Knol

    Grade Range: 6th-8th

    Prerequisites:

    Discover the first battles of the American War of Independence, Lexington and Concord, from the "shots heard round the world" to the unlikely match-up of an untrained militia of colonial farmers against the professional soldiers and statesmen of the great British Empire's army.

    Students will engage in a hands-on 3D battle strategy game using the military dioramas that they make! Using artistic model-making techniques, hand tools, paint, and miniatures, each student will craft a 10 X 16 diorama. In class, they will view historical maps, artistic renderings, and/or photographs to understand the topography and development of this time and place in history. Students will customize their dioramas with landforms, landscape elements, waterways, and structures to represent a scene from this period. Once individual projects are constructed, students will populate them with 1:72 scale miniature figures. Students will combine their dioramas alongside those of their classmates to approximate a larger battlefield. Students will spend the remainder of the quarter learning about the tactics and outcomes of the military engagement while playing a table-top strategy game. Student strategists will use a simplified version of the Fire and Fury historical war gaming rule system for moving troops and equipment. Along with their classmates, students will see how this battle progressed and test different outcome scenarios that might have occurred with different battlefield choices. Each student will have at least one board and set of miniatures to take home with them.

    Battle Strategies & Dioramas: The Spanish-American War, Invasion of San Juan Hill, Cuba (TUE)

    Quarter 4: Starts on March 22, 2022

    Class Time: 12:00 pm      Duration: 55 min

    Instructor: Taliesin Knol

    Grade Range: 6th-8th

    Prerequisites:

    In the late 19th century, the US had expanded rapidly across North America, leaving nowhere to go but overseas. To this end, we began to build a powerful, modern navy of steel warships, like the USS Maine. These ships sailed the world, "showing the flag" and letting our allies and enemies alike know that the US was an industrial force to be reckoned with. This went well until February 1898, when the USS Maine unexpectedly blew up in Havana harbor, where she'd been "showing the flag" in case the Cuban revolts against the Spanish there threatened American financial interests. Never one to miss an opportunity to sell newspapers, William Randolph Hearst (among others) reported that the ship had been sunk by a Spanish mine. This was not true, but that did not matter to "yellow journalists" who were the "fake news" or tabloids of that time. The story sold well and whipped the American people into a war frenzy. "Remember the Maine!" became the battle cry of the coming Spanish-American war. This class will cover the beginning of America's overseas empire, pre-World War 1 American politics of the Gilded age, and the beginning of the age of modern war.

    Instructor: Dr. Michele Forsythe

    Grade Range: 7th-8th

    Prerequisites: None

    Why does too much caffeine give you insomnia? Does Gatorade after exercise really help? How does ibuprofen make pain go away? Answers to these questions and thousands more can be found in the field of biochemistry. Biochemistry is the 20th century branch of medicine that uses chemistry to study biological processes in living organisms at the cellular and molecular level. Biochemistry has connections to the fields of genetics, microbiology, forensics, immunology, and medicine.

    In this class, students will overview atomic structure and electron orbitals to understand how and why chemical bonds form. They will learn about the bipolar properties of the water molecule and several common chemical groups in order to understand and predict the behavior of larger molecules. Students will become familiar with the major classes of macromolecules present in living organisms (carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and fats) and use classic chemistry experiments to identify unknown macromolecules. The role of each type of macromolecule in your body's cells will be discussed.

    Students will investigate environmental conditions that can affect the structure of proteins and will design their own experiment to explore the ability of a protein to maintain its function after exposure to factors that will disrupt its native structure. In the DNA extraction lab, students will learn how each reagent they use is functioning on a biochemical level to enable the release of cellular DNA. Students will be invited to choose what source they would like to extract DNA from. The class's final investigation will be to understand how protein enzymes and nucleic acids work together in the processes of transcription and translation to produce new proteins.

    Topics in this Series: BioChemistry Basics (Semester 1), Decoding DNA and Genetics (semester 2). Lab/Supply Fee: A class fee of $25.00 is due payable to the instructor on the first day of class.

    Instructor: Becca Sticha

    Grade Range: 3rd-4th

    Prerequisites:

    LEGO Mindstorms components and motors are not just for building robots! These interconnecting pieces can be constructed into an infinite number of unique, mechanized machines- much like an erector set!

    Second quarter, students will discover what happens when simple machines are combined to work together. They will be challenged to develop a unique, individual segment of a maze that moves a ball from point A to point B, and each segment will link to a classmate's invention to keep the ball moving! They will use complex machines (compounded simple machines) with additional motors and more components to move the ball through a series of lifts, automated carts, moving gates, escalators, and more! Will each contraption transfer the ball to its neighbor without hitting the floor? Can they pass the ball to their neighbor without hitting the floor? This project is inspired by the LEGO Great Ball Contraption competition, which is similar to Rube Goldberg inventions. See http://greatballcontraption.com/ or You Tube videos for impressive examples of the Great Ball Contraption. Second quarter students will be challenged to build bigger, better, more complex contraptions with compound machines and more mechanization!

    Civics in Action

    Quarter 1,2: Starts on September 10, 2021

    Class Time: 2:00 pm      Duration: 55 min

    Instructor: Dr. John Korncki

    Grade Range: 9th-12th

    Prerequisites: None

    Some teens may dislike government and politics because the system seems too big and too broken, and they feel like they could never make a difference. This workshop-style class will show teens that they can get involved, and they can become part of the solution. The class will give teens the tools they need to take action in their communities, enact change, and become citizen lobbyists. The class will welcome guest speakers who have taken action and tackled a problem in their community.

    Students will be encouraged to identify a problem in the local community and develop an action-oriented plan to address that need. First, students will examine how local and state government is structured and will be expected to attend at least one meeting or hearing of a local or state legislative or administrative body such as a town council, supervisors' meeting, school board meeting, planning/zoning commission, hearing, etc., related to an issue they care about. Worried about affordable housing in our region? Visit a meeting of the Redevelopment and Housing Authority. Dislike homeschoolers' exclusion from high school sports? Attend a school board meeting. Thrilling? Probably not, but these are the actual forums in which issues- and solutions- are first raised and considered. There, students will witness how business is conducted and how ordinary citizens can be heard.

    Students will also learn how to take action by writing effective letters, crafting an op-ed piece, and using social media to spread the word on the issues they care about. The group will look at how to create a petition (online or on paper) and make effective use of them. Students will be expected to write at least one letter to an official and at least one opinion article to a newspaper, blog, or social media platform. Finally, students will be encouraged to develop a project, start an initiative, or find an ongoing program or organization in the community to volunteer with. Students may volunteer individually or in small groups if several similar interests. At the end of the semester, students will be expected to give a class presentation on their issue, investigation, initiatives, and project plans.

    Taking action in the community is not only important for teaching teens how to become engaged citizens, but it also develops qualities that colleges and sometimes scholarships are seeking in applicants. Almost every college asks about a student's community service, leadership, and commitment to activities outside of regular "school" hours. Developing and implementing a community action plan would demonstrate the student's leadership and volunteerism to colleges. In addition, most hours invested in a project could be counted as community service for purposes of earning a President's Volunteer Service Award through Compass. Finally, mentors and adult partners in the community might be able to eventually write a recommendation letter for the teen volunteer.

    Students may want to simultaneously register for this instructor's companion course Political Science through Current Events in order to experience a more complete view of American Government and Civics.

    .

    Prerequisites: None Workload: Students should expect to spend 2-3 hours per week outside of class on the investigation of issues/projects.

Textbook/Materials: The instructor compile a packet of selected readings and articles by August 1. Lab/Supply Fee: A class fee (TBD) will be assessed for the photocopied class packet. Credit: Homeschool families may wish to count this course as partial credit in Civics for purposes of a high school transcript.

    Imagine a phone app that could quickly reunite lost pets, connect the poor with resources that they need, or report a problem in the community! Code for a Cause is the Compass-based Technovation hub where middle school girls will participate in the world's largest technology entrepreneurship program for girls. Each year, Technovation teams solve real world problems through technology that they develop!

    Through Technovation, girls work with women mentors, identify a problem in their community, develop a mobile app, and launch a startup. Since 2010, 23,000 girls around the world have developed mobile apps and startups to solve problems around a diverse range of problems, including food waste, nutrition, women's safety, and much more. In this year-long program, girls will work in teams and learn the skills they need to change the world with technology.

    Girls will begin with get-to-know-you and team building activities before breaking into teams of 3-4. Each team will brainstorm to identify a problem in the community. They will propose a mobile app solution to their problem and conduct market research to see if their idea is the best possible solution. Next, the girls will learn to program their unique application using a web-based software called Thunkable (an app inventor platform). In class, girls will be coached step-by-step on the process and logic of creating an interactive application. Finally, girls will learn how to brand their app, create a business plan, and look at what it would take to bring the app to market.

    Participation in Technovation gives girls the confidence to pursue more computer science courses (70%), and give many the foundation to eventually major in computer science (26%). Technovation teams are in 100 countries, and the program is sponsored by Oracle, Google, 3M, Adobe Foundation, and others.

    TechnologyEach student will need to have- and check- her own e-mail account and bring her own laptop to class each week. Chrome Books and tablets will not work for this application.Homework Students should expect to spend 2-3 hours outside of class each week on coding or collaborating with team members.
