Well students this is something isn't it? I miss seeing all of you in class and hope that you are practicing social distancing and staying safe. I have been recording the data while at home and the numbers continue to increase at an alarming rate. I looked back to see when we started recording on Jan 28 and there were only 4474 cases in China at the time and now we are approaching that number in the US! At this time I do not know the status of when we will return to school so I am giving you some materials to work on while we are out. PER RECOMMENDATION FROM MS. ALZATE PLEASE HOLD OFF DOING THIS WORK UNTIL YOU GET THE OK FROM ME.The due dates are April and May so you will have time to work on this and be prepared when we see each other again. The test that was scheduled for Thursday and Friday (March 12/13) will go on the first day we come back. You should look the material over and if there are any questions I will hold the help sessions before the test as usual.
This situation is unprecedented so we all need to keep calm and not worry about our grades. The entire country is going through the same thing so I want you to relax and don't worry about things that will work out in the end. Big hugs from Mrs. Wright to all of you wonderful, amazing students I have been blessed to teach. <3
EMAIL me if you have any questions.
Here is the first assignment. It is a genetic disorder assignment that will piggy-back on the material we went over before Covid-19 cancelled school. They are the type of mutations I gave you notes on. This is an assignment that you will email to me. I will post which disorder you are assigned in the link below.

DISORDER LIST This list is numbered. You take the disorder that matches the number on my roster for your class. For example, if you are student #1 your disorder is Sickle-Cell Anemia.
The second assignment is the Ecology Packet I told you about. This is due in early May and it is something you can do at home at your leisure. Print it out and work on it. PER RECOMMENDATION FROM MS. ALZATE PLEASE HOLD OFF DOING THIS WORK UNTIL YOU GET THE OK FROM ME.
