Welcome to this class. First, we will discuss the class and then we will discuss the teacher(s). Environmental science is a project driven class. We will have some lecture but for the most part you will be given introductory information and then we will develop a project for either you or with a group. Some projects will be long term (2 weeks or so) others will be short, completed within the class period. Every project will have a due date. Due dates are firm (except in the case of snow days). Many projects can be turned in via the google classroom, so even if you are absent, you expected to turn in work. Most of your quarter grade will be based on the projects. Therefore, if you want a good grade in this class, create good projects.
