Mrs. Chantal Torchia
Hello and welcome to Mrs. Torchia’s CP Biology class! This will be my 18th year teaching science, 13 of which have been right here at OBHS! CP Biology is a lab science course that involves the study of living things and the environments in which they live. The course is centered around the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which involve engaging in science and engineering practices in order to understand conceptual progression which is scaffolded from the disciplinary core ideas & making connections to prior learning through the infusion of cross cutting concepts that demonstrate the connections between scientific disciplines. Mastery of the content will be demonstrated through wet/dry/individual/group assessment activities that are based on the NGSS performance expectations.
