AP BIO & ENVIRO

Thanks to all of my students for making this another great year at the Boro. I learned a great deal from you guys, and I hope you did the same. I wish all of you health and happiness and hope you’ll keep me up to date with your studies and/or future work.

One final extra credit opportunity (especially for those of you heading off to college). I saw an interesting article on slate.com about using laptops in college classrooms. Read it and let me know what you think. Either stop by in person this week or email me your response by Wednesday.
