1 Credit Course
Environmental Science is a full year curriculum that introduces students to the study of Environmental Science– an engaging course, often offered in both high school and as a college general education course. As a high school credit, it can be considered Science or elective credit. This Course is age-appropriate for high school students. We will be offering this class as a weekly 90 minute, full credit class (block schedule) so that students can maximize high school and CLEP credits as upper level high school students.
Students will read, recall, reflect, and react to text book and other readings in the field of Environmental Science. Weekly presentations will underscore weekly reading as well as allow students to present their findings and discuss in large and small groups.
In this course, students will explore environmental impacts and management, conservation and the political processes and other ecological concepts, including ecosystems, global ecology, food chains and webs. The goal of this course is to inspire students to inquisitively ask, questions and seek appropriate, Biblical answers to environmental science. This information will be applicable to their own lives, as well as to a broad range of career fields. This class will be taught from a decidedly Christian point of view with the understanding that Environmental Science is a helpful and effective tool when understood as part of a bigger design.
