I love teaching seventh-grade life science!   I started here at Olson in 1994 and I'm really proud to be part of the OMS family.   Great students and awesome colleagues make every school year something special!   I partner with Mrs. Dettmann (Team 7-1) to create and deliver our Flexible-Learning Life Science course.     OMS7 Science has been a hybrid flipped model for the last several years, meaning that most of the "homework" will be an online presentation of material and "classroom work" will concentrate on practice and activity.    Students are expected to access a short lesson as homework and answer a few qustions about the material, to be prepared for the classroom activity.  Flipped Instruction basically allows kids to access instruction outside of the classroom, in a SPACE and TIME that works best for them.    Flexible Learning takes Flipped Instruction to a new level, allowing kids to move through the instruction at their own PACE and even following a PATH of their own choosing.  The work will be easily accessible from our Canvass and Team pages.  Please follow the steps below:
