Hello, my name is Gina and I am enrolled in AP Biology for my senior year of high school! I am very excited about this course and all that I am going to learn as I am a lover of science. I intend to study veterinary medicine in the future and I am so grateful to have this opportunity to delve deeper into the world of Biology.
I will be the first to admit that when Mrs. Girard told us that we would be creating public websites to post our work, I was nervous and reluctant! Never before had I posted my assignments or any type of work online (or anywhere for that matter) for the whole world to see. In fact, I was the type of kid who was hesitant about hanging artwork in the classroom in elementary school and I always choose “Do not allow” when College Board asks to use my AP Exams as an example. However, two semesters and four “Teens Do Science” episodes later, I am the queen of my blog and I couldn’t be happier with it!
Blog-making, and web page design in general, is a skill! I learned a lot about the importance of organization and accessibility in the designing process and how to maintain those two things as I continue to add posts. For example, I realized that my “Teens Do Science” episodes were my most popular posts so I created a separate menu tab for them (thus increasing their accessibility)! These skills will continue to be useful, especially if I ever have to create a website for a job or a class in the future!
I plan to keep this website alive next year so I can look back at it and reminisce on my time in AP Bio and so future AP Bio students can view it and get ideas for posts or find out what to look forward to in the class.
