HS Marine Biology

Just about 70% of the Earth's surface is covered with water. Earth’s oceans play a critical role in the planet’s ability to sustain life.

Tiny ocean plants, called phytoplankton, produce most of the oxygen in the air we breathe. When producing oxygen, these plants soak up carbon dioxide, removing this gas from the air.

The ocean is always in motion: currents move water around the globe. Cold water sinks in the ocean, warm water rises, and this constant movement distributes heat and nutrients around the earth.

Most scientists believe that life on Earth started in the ocean and spread to land.

This is a year-long Marine Biology course in which we will learn about life in different ocean environments, from the polar regions to the tropical coral reefs. We will also learn how all life connects in the marine biome, and what threats are facing these living systems. In the first semester, students had a general introduction to Marine Biology and went in depth on some subjects through research papers and presentations. During the second semester, we will dive deeper into subjects introduced last semester, as well as some new subjects. There will be more hands-on laboratory activities and students will learn to keep lab notebooks and produce high school level lab reports. The amount of homework and research will amount to 3-4 hours a week.

This course is run as a flipped course, which means that the students have the responsibility to complete readings, videos and homework assignments prior to class. In person classes will focus on content review, clarifications and discussions followed by hands on, practical activities and labs.

There will be one field trip to the Blue Ocean Discovery Center, Hampton Beach for further exploration of beach and salt marsh ecosystems.

Please check out our learning outcomes for this course  at https://canvas.instructure.com/courses/1404473/pages/learning-outcomes

The students will continue to use the book “Seaside Naturalist” by Deborah Coulombe.

Drawing

In Drawing Fundamentals, we'll use a variety of drawing media to create artwork in all kinds of subjects including nature, animals, people and portraiture, and still life.  Using the basic elements of composition, perspective, shading, and blending, we’ll work with different subjects and different drawing media including pencil, charcoal, colored pencil, and pen & ink.  Some of our lessons will take inspiration from the great masters, such as Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Degas, and others. The class will incorporate working from life, photographs, and imagination!

Civics

What is the Magna Carta? Why is our democratic republic such a unique form of government? How do other countries form their political and economic systems? These questions might not excite all of my students.
Why did King Louis’ head get chopped off during “Hamilton?” Were Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson heroes or villains? What would my life be like if I were a homeschooler living in another country? Now these are questions that spark imagination and create the curiosity needed to care about civics around the world. This term we will answer all of the above questions and more as we discover what life as a homeschooler would be like in on other continents. Beginning with Europe, specifically Germany and Finland, we will find out who can vote, what people do for work, what kids do for fun, and how this all compares to our lives. China and India will also be explored from this perspective. Each student will have a chance to choose a country to teach the class about. At the end of class, we’ll discover an unclaimed island and create our own civilization out of the aspects we learned about which we like the most.

Current event that will be integrated into the class: the NH State House Bicentennial Commission is hosting its third youth contest to celebrate the anniversary. The contest is a mixed media arts contest with the theme – The New Hampshire State House and Its Meaning Today. The contest is open to any resident, 5 to 21, who is enrolled in a public, private, or home school. A part of this class, for those who choose to participate, will be designing a submission for the contest. Kitty is happy to arrange submission of students’ works.

CSI: Mosaic

Imagine you’re sitting in a classroom waiting for the teacher to begin when suddenly the lights go out and you hear a crash. When the lights come back on your classmates are in the exact places they were, but there is a broken window. Who broke the window? How will you solve the crime?

If you’re a fan of mysteries, this is the class for you. We will learn forensic secrets like; how to lift and identify fingerprints, make fake blood cuts using chemistry, identify how to tell if someone is lying, and use these elements to write our own mystery stories. In each class I will introduce a new forensics skill we will use to solve our daily enigma. Students will then write a scene for their own mystery that is solved using the same technique. With equal parts science and writing, this class is sure to help students create their own “whodunit.”

Model UN

Welcome back to Model UN! This is an exciting semester with two big conferences: BOSMUN and EagleMUNC!

Model UN is an authentic simulation of the of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, or other multilateral body, which introduces students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation, and decision making. 8th grade and high school students will have the opportunity to step into the shoes of delegates of UN member countries, parleying different issues on the agenda of this broad organization.

Mosaic Model UN (MOSMUN) Club is open to any homeschool student 8th grade and up who is interested in learning about global issues, UN, and Model UN simulations.

As members of our Club, students will be offered weekly lectures, games, mini-simulations, joint-simulations with other Model UN groups, remote and in class support for conference preparation as well as additional meetings before the conference. We take our students to up to three conferences a year, with the majority of students attending all three.

Although not mandatory, all students are encouraged to participate in at least one Model UN conference. Novice students who prefer to solidly familiarize with Model UN procedure, research methods, public speaking and position paper writing before attending a conference are welcome to do so and choose to participate in our third and last conference of the year, which will most likely be in March.

We are in the process of assessing conference options for the 2018/19 year and will post details here as soon as three conferences are picked.

Important note!
As MOSMUN Club member, students are privileged to participate in Model UN conferences. There is a tremendous amount of effort to make all necessary arrangements, to prepare the delegates and make sure their papers are in good standing, their research binders complete and their understanding of their topics and countries solid. With each conference come deadlines to be met. Therefore, an upfront commitment is required from all of those who will participate in conferences, and a  conference participation agreement will be handed out the first day of classes to be signed by both the student and the parent. A student without position papers and opening speeches submitted on time will not be allowed to attend the conference, at the loss of all registration fees.

To read more about Model UN, please go to: Mosaic Model UN

Pricing model

Participation in our Model UN Club is $150 per semester. Re-registration and payment in the second semester are expected. All our Model UN club students are strongly encouraged to participate in at least one conference.

Conference costs:
- per delegate fee - amount varies from one conference to another, we'll update this course description once conferences are picked
- $40 per conference preparation fee
- hotel and transportation costs - amount varies from one conference to another; a factor that determines per student hotel cost is determined by the number of students in a room

Pathways to Art

This semester of art is geared toward introducing the students to a variety of art media, techniques and a spattering of art from the artist.
The "Art from Art" segment is taught with a lesson plan that includes the biography of an artist with discussion and exploration of additional artwork produced by that artist.

Below are some examples of projects we will be working on:

There are a few items which students will be responsible for:

  • set of watercolors: I prefer NOT using semi moist or washable since these have less pigment (color) and will drip out of plastic cases if stored on its side near heat. No need for larger count as we will be learning to mix colors to create other interesting colors.
  • Set of graphite pencils: sets of 5 in a varied hardness can be purchased as a set  including a white eraser, pencil sharpener which are also needed. If sets do not hold these items, they can be purchased separately
  • White eraser, pencil sharpener, set of colored pencils.

A number of these items can be found online through dickblick.com, cheapjoes.com or at your local Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

There is a $10 material fee payable directly to the teacher on the first day of classes.

Theatre in Performance

Important: there is a stage manager position available for students who are 7th grade or older and who are interested in learning about the management and backstage aspects of a production. To find out more, please scroll down to the end of the description.

 


Calling all young and adventure-loving thespians! We have an exciting journey awaiting and would love for you to hop on board!

Depending on the number of students enrolled, we are considering staging this semester a short version of the Jungle Book or Dorothy and the Thief of Oz.

Jungle Book play overview: This thrilling and fun-filled adventure is brought to the stage by the theatrical master Jon Jory who has crafted an accessible, flexible, and easily-staged version for all ages! When a human child named Mowgli is taken and raised by a family of wolves, he must learn the ways of the jungle. Fortunately he has the wise panther Bagheera and friendly Baloo the bear by his side. But soon Mowgli finds himself in trouble with Shere Khan the tiger and the trickster monkey tribe. It's up to Mowgli's jungle friends to rescue him and Mowgli must decide if he should return to the nearby man-village or live in the wild with the ones he loves.

Dorothy and the Thief of Oz play overview: Can Dorothy find the Tin Woodsman’s stolen heart and her parents on her second trip to Oz? Upon her arrival, she finds Tin Woodsman’s heart has been stolen, leaving him unable to love. Thrilled at the opportunity to pursue her dream of reuniting with her parents, but desperate to find her friend’s heart, Dorothy joins the beloved Oz characters in search of both. With the help of rabbit detective Jack Nabbit, Tin Woodsman’s heart is found, and Dorothy’s parents are returned to her in a most unexpected way.

Students will learn and practice the skills that all actors need to understand: speech, projection, character development, expression, pitch, stance, eye contact and poise. Students will work together to build the production and the behind the scenes elements. The script will be handed out to everyone the first day of classes. We will also play theatre games to warm up and strengthen the voice, body and tactics.

Students will perform at our end of year performance. Line memorization and at home practice is required for this class. Additional rehearsals will be held the week of the show. We will coordinate schedules.


Stage Manager attributes:

  • excellent planning, organizational and leadership skills
  • good note taking skills (writing or typing)
  • confidence and decision making ability
  • ability to multi task and "think on your own feet"
  • calmness under pressure
  • good communicator
  • high level of attention to detail
  • good management skills.

Our Theatre Director will work closely with the Stage Manager to make sure there is a smooth and solid learning curve.

In the world of Neverland, Peter Pan is king until he meets his match...a female Captain Hook. Experience a theatrical and inventive Peter Pan like you never have before! Master director and acclaimed playwright Jon Jory has also reimagined the classic tale with a crew of female pirates, opening up the casting possibilities for schools and theaters.

A Wrinkle in Time play overview: One of literature's most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry, is back--braces, stubbornness and all. Once again, she's joining forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O'Keefe and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: 1. Love CAN overcome evil and 2. There IS such a thing as a tesseract.
