Student Directed Study – Action Project

How can you help feed the world?  Why is this such an important topic to discuss? As you travel the world throughout this course, you will choose one country to focus on and develop a plan to help solve an issue in the country.  A copy of the assignment can be found here.  You may also want to access this website (World Food Prize) for resources.

This project is worth 15 % of your overall mark.  While there is a written component to this project, there will also be a 3-4 minute spoken component, you must create a visual representation of your report.  The visual representation can be a product of your choosing, but should be a business plan – how will you help your country deal with the issue you chose?

Rubric for the project can be found here.

Sources for citing work – Remember to choose APA:

Easybib

Bibme

Citation machine

This exemplar is an excellent source to check your formatting and to verify if you are working up to your potential. The student who submitted this paper received an exceptional mark (the student was in grade 11 when this paper was written, therefore I know you are capable of such work).
It is very important that you maintain Academic Integrity while doing research. You MUST give credit to an author when you borrow any of their work (directly or indirectly). See here for proper citing formats required by Mrs. Cooper. I take proper sourcing VERY SERIOUSLY!!! If you do not source your paper properly, I will hand it back, your SDS will sit as an NHI until re-submitted by the date decided upon. Only when your paper has been sourced properly will I mark it and change your mark on HomeLogic.

In my class, we use APA formatting.  This is a very good infographic.  Use it, please!

This project will be due on April 20.

Welcome to Wildlife Management!

Welcome to Wildlife Management 10!  Below, I have listed important sites for you to become very familiar with and why:

  1.  WordPress (the same blog site that I am using) – I require you to start your own wordpress blog – this will be a site that we will use from here on out for all of your science classes.  You will be required to make a page for Biology  (I will show you how to do this).
  2. Snapchat – search cooperscience – you will see a photo of Tyson!
  3. Read over the rubric very carefully!

 

In this course we will focus on the following foundational objectives:

  1. To demonstrate safety practices while engaged in outdoor experiences.
  2. To develop values that will increase an appreciation and respect for wildlife.
  3. To understand the role and obligations of government agencies, interest groups and individuals to preserve wildlife.
  4. To examine issues and opinions as to how wildlife should be managed.
  5. To develop skills that allow students to appreciate the natural world through direct experiences.
  6. To examine relationships between wildlife species and humans and how populations are affected.
  7. To research the structure, diversity, behaviour and habitat of Saskatchewan wildlife species.
  8. To create an awareness of and respect for laws that regulate human interaction with and exploitation of wildlife.
  9. To cultivate an appreciation and understanding of how other cultures view wildlife.
  10. To develop workplace skills, knowledge and attitudes in wildlife management that may lead to successful employment.
  11. To recognize how the work skills developed in the classroom will be used to meet workplace expectations.
  12. To be aware of the career opportunities in the field of wildlife management that exist in Saskatchewan and other provinces.
  13. To integrate classroom learning with work-related learning.
  14. To increase awareness of employability skills as they relate to the work environment.
  15. To understand how skills acquired in school may transfer to the workplace.
