Does the streaming service expire?
No. This is a purchase in perpetuity.
What size are the downloads?
There are four for download, ranging from smaller to larger. Actual file sizes depend on your choice of quality. At the lowest end, it is a 100MB per file average; at the highest end it is 1GB per file, average.
How long are the videos?
They range in length from 12 minutes to 35 minutes. The average length is 20 minutes.
Where do the lab materials come from?
The lab materials can be purchased here, and will be fulfilled by Cornerstone educational supply. There are also videos that explain how each lab is to be done.
How much time is needed for the Labs?
All the laboratory exercises that would conventionally be done in a school laboratory are designed to be done by the students in less than 2 hours. The set up for some of them might add some time and some might need to be designed making efficient use of the time (but that is for the person putting the lab together, not the students. The labs that might take longer for the students (such as designing an identification key for plants at a nursery or designing a biogeochemical cycle presentation) should take less than 2 hours in ‘the lab’ (e.g., at the nursery or collecting research data), but might require some additional time on the part of the students outside of lab (or, in the worst case scenario, more than one trip to the nursery). There should be no problem arranging for the longest labs to be done over more than one lab period. In short, 1-2 hours should be adequate for the labs in this course.
Does the book come with daily lesson plans?
Yes, there is a scope and sequence that is included with a structure for the course.
Are there tests with this material?
Yes, there are potential test questions that are included in the book. They consist of short answers and essays. The answers are all included in the teacher’s guide.
