15 What can you do at home? Ask about what they learned in class
If they have to explain it to someone that can tell if they know it or not Keep in contact with your child Look at Science Notebook Help keep them organized Encourage them to be the best that THEY can be, try not to compare them to other students

16 Resources for extra help
Read textbook Online educational videos (I have many links on website) AP Biology students tutor every Tues/Thurs 3-4 in Room B208 Find study partners/groups for reviewing I’m here every lunch to help students learn concepts and for them to figure out skills to help them learn on their own

17 If you have a concern about their grade
PLEASE talk to your child often they know why they got the grade the received and what they can do improve Have your child come talk to me. If they need help, I am happy to be there for them. I want to teach them responsibility Of course you can contact me first if there are extenuating circumstances
