Marine Biology (1 credit)

Marine Biology is an elective course that explores the largest biome on Earth, the ocean, and the organisms that coexist in it. The course takes an ecological approach and focuses on the inter-relationships among the creatures living in the salt water. While the ocean is vast and, in many places, quite deep, it is still vulnerable to the effects of human exploitation and pollution. Students will study specimens of marine life, from the tiny floating inhabitants of the plankton and bottom-dwelling invertebrates up to the larger, free-swimming fishes and mammals. Field trips & labs are incorporated when possible. Students will be exposed to various resources and references, including newspaper/journal articles, internet sites, guest speakers, and videos.

Spanish II (1 credit)

In the second year of Spanish, students will reinforce the grammar and conversational skills learned in Spanish I. Students will expand their knowledge of the language by learning other verb conjugation forms and new vocabulary and expressions. Students will have ample opportunities to apply what they have learned, as oral communication will be emphasized.

Prerequisite: Spanish I
