Middletown Teachers Study at Duke Marine Biology Lab

Two Middletown City School District science teachers spent their summer traveling to North Carolina to participate in a Wright State University program to visit the Duke Marine Biology Lab. Alex Frueauf and Keith Vinson, MHS Science Teachers, traveled together with 18 other teachers from across Ohio to learn about the ancient ocean and how it has changed over the history of the Earth. The two spent time collaborating with fellow teachers and creating inquiry based lessons to use in their classrooms in the fall. “I loved it”, “it was an amazing opportunity to gather information to share with my students who do not have the opportunity to visit the ocean”, said Vinson. The two science teacher’s spent their time at Duke Marine Lab’s comparing the ancient ocean’s flora and fauna and the present day ocean’s flora and fauna by learning about water quality, Geology, Chemistry, and Ecology of the marine environment.

New High School Graduation Requirements
House Bill 487 updated Ohio’s graduation requirements to ensure that all students are ready for success in college and work. As a result, the Class of 2017 (10th-graders in the 2014-2015 school year) will be the last students to take the current Ohio Graduation Tests. The new requirements take effect with the class of 2018 (ninth graders in Fall 2014). Additionally, every student will have the opportunity to take a nationally-recognized college admission exam free of charge in the 11th grade. The honors diploma remains another option for students.
Check out the changes on the following link:
