Biology Honors class (for 6th-9th graders)

Meeting twice a week throughout the summer, this class is designed for students with little to no biology background, preparing them for high school biology classes. This class will teach the same level of biology as the 9th grade classes in public schools and some private middle schools.​ Students will leave with prepared, with a complete, in-depth understanding of high school biology and honors biology topics.  The students will even conduct some experiments and submit lab reports.Textbook: Biology by Kenneth R. Miller


AP biology class

​Meeting twice a week throughout the summer, this class will preview the entire AP Biology course as laid out by the College Board, with a special emphasis on the most challenging chapters (photosynthesis, cell signaling, etc).
(The class is appropriate for students who have already completed a HS-level science course or that are highly motivated.)
Students will leave with a complete, in-depth understanding of all required AP Biology concepts.  (Those who are self-studying for the exam will still need to practice and review, but they will have a complete basic understanding of all required concepts.)
All past students have received a 4 or a 5 on their exams, even 9th graders and self-studiers.


Bio SAT II class

Are you ready for the October 1st SAT II Biology exam?
This class will help you prepare by reviewing every single subject necessary for the exam according to the College Board.  We will use practice questions from multiple sources and complete >5 practice exams before test date.
Recommended books: Campbell biology (any edition), Barons SATII Biology test prep.  (A biology background such as Freshman Biology is highly recommended.)


USABO class
This class is for first-time USABO competition students who are highly motivated.
​As recommended by the USABO organization, we will be covering every single chapter in the Campbell biology book (the official book of the competition), beginning in summer and continuing throughout the fall semester.  (Yes, this means you will also be fully prepared for the AP Bio and SATII bio.)
By beginning so early, we will not be too rushed, but students should still invest 2-5 hours every week reading and reviewing materials outside of class. (SpringLight will also offer a “cram” class over winter break, and an in-depth “taking all the exams from previous years” class in Jan-Feb, 2017.)
Our previous students have been extremely successful:
*all our students scored above 20 on the regional (the cutoff for nationals was 23.88)
*50% of our students made it to semifinals
*2 of our students have made it to finals (top 20 in the US)

Instructor Mrs. Webster: With over 10 years of tutoring and editing experience, Mrs. Webster teaches biology, test prep, and writing(including application writing).  Funny, articulate, and knowledgeable, she is often called “the best teacher” by her students.
Mrs. Webster’s students have been very successful indeed: her application-writing students have been accepted to Ivy League schools; her USABO students have made it to nationals; her ACT students have achieved dramatic, 10 point increases in their scores—and sometimes even perfect scores. 
Raised by Jewish tiger parents, Mrs. Webster was a National Merit Scholar, receiving 1560/1600 on her SATs and 5’s on her APs. Funded by a 30 thousand dollar writing scholarship, she earned a BS in biology with a minor in studio art from Lake Forest College, IL. She then studied neuroscience at UAB and received an MS in biomedical science.

1. Every class will review  physics concept Mechanics, Wave, Electromagnetic, Optical and Modern Physics.
2. Review the Questions over the years and explain the difficult ones, and help with the wrong problems.

How the Contest Works

Each year, approximately 10,000 students take a 40-question, 45-minute timed, multiple-choice test under their school’s supervision. The 2016 exam will be given between March 30 and April 15, 2016. Exam questions are based on topics and concepts covered in a typical high school physicscourse.

To enhance the distribution of awards, Division I is for first-year physics students and Division II is for second-year physics students. Each Division has 14 regions that have been established across the country to allow schools in each region to compete against one another. Specialized math and science schools compete in their own region.

Division: There are 2 divisions for students…

  • Division 01 – (Students will answer only questions 1 – 40)
    This is for students taking their first course in physics. The level of the course does not matter. Students taking AP Physics have an advantage in depth of material, but students in non-AP curriculum have an advantage of potentially discussing other topics on the contest that do not appear in the AP curriculum.
  • Division 02 -(Students will answer only questions 11 – 50)
    This is for students taking their 2nd physics course (or more)… OR students wishing a challenge… so anyone can take Div. 02
Winners are lists of
  • the overall top 10 students in each division
  • the overall top 5 schools in each division
  • the first and second place students in each division by region.
  • the top 4 schools in each region by division
  • a list of the top 20 student scores in each division that did not win a prize

第三章      走进孩子的文化圈


—-雷吉 . 乔伊纳

《旧金山观察家报》专栏作家大卫 . 萨拉桑提醒道:“对于今天的孩子们来说,最重要的事情是,家长们怎样看待他们”。诚然,有时我像某些大人一样,能够迅速指出自己孩子的一些毛病。事实上,我很容易地把孩子们套进消极的模式之中:如缺乏责任感、不知感恩、自私自利等。我们之所以有这样的感受,有时是因为这些孩子成长的世界与我们的截然不同,他们生长在一个我们无法完全了解的世界。而对这一代人的正面评价也通常隐藏在疑云之后—–人们还是易于对不明就里的事物持否定态度。










2000年5月8日的《新闻周刊》发表了一篇对十几岁孩子的封面特写,题目是《一个只属于他们自己的世界》。文章中,沙仑 . 贝格利写了这样一段话:“千禧代的特征正在不断浮现。他们所处的时代,文化会不断变化以迁就他们的需要—–洗手间的换尿布桌、家庭轿车上的‘宝宝在车上’标志等等。然而,比起过去的几代人,千禧少年的生活更加不为大人们所干涉。”

在1998年出版的《一个分离的部落》一书中,帕特里夏 . 郝什指出,千禧代的孩子们比历史上任何时候的孩子拥有更多的私人时间。他们要么和朋友们呆在一起,要么呆在一个私人的世界里与网络游戏为伍,少受大人干涉。通常,他们在网上购物、找工作、做作业、做调查、发邮件、和朋友聊天。他们平均每周有38个小时在电脑或电视机前度过。据去年的艾尔弗雷德 . 皮 . 斯隆青少年与社会发展报告统计,除睡眠时间之外,十几岁的孩子们有9%的时间在校外和朋友们一起度过,20%的时间单独度过。也就是说他们近30%的时间是在大人们的视线外度过的。





这也和与另一代人建立联系会相当困难的情况相类似。家长与孩子来自两个截然不同的世界。从某种程度上来说,这本身也是一种夸文化关系,要比与同龄人的关系需要付出更多的努力。2000年5月,未来学家莱昂纳多 . 斯韦特提出若你已过三十,那你便是当前文化的“外来移民”。若你未满三十,则还算得上是“土著居民”。步入中年的人们会发觉自己像是停留在爱利斯岛上的外来移民,面对的是一个完全陌生的世界:媒体、电影、科技、千禧代的思维方式,都令人百思不得其解。









厄尔 . 帕默尔在《惊人的例外》一书中写到了位于旧金山的金门大桥。金门大桥直接伫立在安第斯山脉的断层带上,它之所以能伫立不倒是因为其长达一英里的悬浮力弹性极好,能够向左右摇摆20英尺之多。不仅如此,通过巧妙设计,大桥的每一部分—–包括混凝土桥面,钢架栏杆和十字衡量—-都毫无例外地靠着四通发达的缆线链接到两座高耸的巨塔和两块巨大的桥墩上。两座塔承担了大部分的重量,嵌在海下的岩石基座中。这样一来,整座桥就像是被一个巨大的锚固定在了水中。这就是秘密所在:弹性与基础。




我发现KISS的演唱会将会在我们城里举行。我研究了这个乐队,为他们印了一些材料,并决定找到他们要入住的宾馆。最后我知道了他们住在CAMELOT INN的628房间。我在电梯旁等了几个小时,在午夜时,我终于乘电梯到六楼,看到他们的保镖站在门外。他可是个大个头。我颤抖着走到他身边,盯着他的护膝,说道:“先生,我叫提姆 . 爱摩,是镇里的一个年轻牧师。我不是歌迷也不是什么怪人,如果您不介意的话,我想和乐队的四位成员谈几分钟。”










去年,我与公益组织“家庭智慧”的创始人雷吉 . 乔伊纳进行了一次富有启发性的对话。他向我讲述了“相关”这个词的定义:






1. 接触孩子的文化圈


2. 持守区别现时文化中恒久不变的东西


  • 诚实—-我们希望孩子们能坦诚地告诉我们任何事情。
  • 积极的态度—-我们相信无论处境如何,态度是一种选择。
  • 服务他人—-我们希望能尽力帮助周围有需要的人。
  • 责任感—-我们希望孩子能承担责任而非逃避。
  • 感恩之心—-我们希望孩子们对任何礼物(哪怕它微不足道,)都能心存感激。
  • 顺服—-我们希望孩子们能听从规定,哪怕他们不喜欢。


3. 创建领导才能训练营


4. 在孩子的世界里交流



5. 永远不自以为是,认为过去行得通的事今天也会行得通


6. 建立亲密关系而非控制




  • 你的孩子认为你和他的世界相关吗?
  • 你将如何融入文化之中而不是被文化所侵吞?
  • 请说出你认为可以建立并保持相关的一步。
