This Week's Focus: Protists/Fungi and Plants

We will finish our study of Protists and Fungi and begin our study of Plants. More information about the content, the location of each handout, and helpful hints for each assignment can be found in the Protists and Fungi Course Resources and Plants Course Resources.


Did you know that tests/projects are 35% of your grade in this course?

If you aren't doing as well as you'd like on the tests, ask yourself:

  • Am I reading through ALL of the module's pages BEFORE you start the test?
  • Are you watching the Jigsaw Sessions for help with the concepts on the test BEFORE you start the test?
  • Are you asking questions about what you don't understand BEFORE you start the test?

If you aren't doing ALL of these things, why not try doing them just once? It couldn't hurt your grade and you just might be surprised with how well you do on the test!



As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:
