Dear Teacher,

Below is a collection of documents to help set expectations for your students as well as organize and pace the Regents Living Environment curriculum. The pacing ensures that students will learn all major topics covered on the exam in addition to "hot topics" in today's world. These materials will help students to be satisfactorily prepared for the Living Environment Regents exam.  Furthermore, the pacing includes well over 1200 minutes of hands-on laboratory, required in order to pass any science Regents exam. 

I've also included templates of letters that you may wish to distribute to parents at the beginning and/or during the school year.
