Ecology and Systems Biology: Networks and Factors

We launched our first lesson of Unit 2 (Ecology and Systems Biology) with an introduction to the SQ3R reading strategy.  Details are included in the attached slide deck presented to students before they practiced the SQ3R reading strategy on a reading passage.  The reading introduced students to the vocabulary words of biotic factors (living things) and abiotic factors (things that are not living), and related both types of factors to the study of systems.  Students who were unable to complete the reading in class should finish it as homework and turn it in at the start of class tomorrow morning to receive full credit.
