Environmental Science 120 - Footprint calculator

Type a reflection and edit it in Word then paste it here in the comments section.  You can use these questions to guide your reflection: Were you surprised at your result?  What are areas in your life that you could easily reduce your impact on the planet? What areas would be more difficult?  What are some areas of your life that you never even considered as having a negative impact on the environment?  Do you challenge the use of some of the areas they use to calculate ones carbon footprint?

Due to the importance of being and active contributing members of a group for many of the projects marks will be earned based on the days present and working on a project.  For example, if a project takes ten class days to complete and a student only attends five they will receive 50% of the mark that the group received.

 All marks are based on a scale where a “C” indicates that work is sufficient but needs in improvement; a “B” is proficient; and an “A” indicates exceptional work. Students will have many opportunities for feedback and to improve their work before they hand in a final project.

 BLMS late assignment policy:

-    To get full marks, assignments need to be handed in by the assigned due date.

-    For every date late, after the assignment due date, 10% will be deducted from the mark (up to a maximum of 40%).  Weekends count as one day.

-    If a student is absent on a due date, a written excuse from a parent or guardian must be presented upon the student’s return, or the late-day deductions will apply.

-    A student’s mark cannot be lower than 60% given that the student deserves a passing grade on the assignment to begin with.  Any work getting a mark of less than 60% will receive that grade.

-    In order to be graded, all work must be handed in no later than 2 weeks after the given due date of the assignment.  Term marks are final.

 BLMS Attendance Incentive –

Exams are normally worth 30% of students’ mark. To reach Academic Incentive, a student must meet the following criteria:

1)               Miss 5 or fewer classes in that particular subject (school activities exempted); AND

2)               Be in good standing (not owing for assignments, projects, etc.)

 The subject teacher will then apply one of the three following options to the student’s advantage:

1)               15% Final Exam, 85% Class Mark

2)               50% Final Exam, 50% Class Mark

 Extra help is available at lunch upon request Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

 World Issues 120 – period 4

This course is designed with the intention exploring world issues that are both relevant to the students and current by studying evolving issues.  Students will read, write, interview and present projects.  The emphasis of this course is on collaborative learning and discussion; therefore, students with irregular attendance are not likely to succeed. 

 Participants in this course must be respectful of the opinions and cultures of others within the class.  This class will not be emotionally comfortable.  The subjects discussed will be controversial and our opinions may be challenged.

 Due to the importance of being and active contributing members of a group for many of the projects marks will be earned based on the days present and working on a project.  For example, if a project takes ten class days to complete and a student only attends five they will receive 50% of the mark that the group received.

Environmental Science 120 – period 5

This course is structured very differently than most courses currently being offered.  It structured around student interests and current environmental issues.  Students will consider the environment from the perspective of their own personal behaviours, government, Indigenous perspectives and sustainable development.  

 

Most importantly students should realize that this will be a project-based course where they choose their own environmental concerns and implement strategies to improve that problem.  They will need to be active learners. They will work from a scientific perspective to research, experiment and present their findings with respect to a current issue.
