General Biology, 1971 Revised Syllabus of a Course for Credit as a Group 3 Elective.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
The syllabus for a general biology course (which may be used for one Group III credit as an elective toward a New York State Regents High School Diploma) contains five major units. These units - Life Functions, Systems of the Human Body, Continuation of Life, The Green Plants, and Classification and Evolution - are designed to "involve the nonscience-oriented student in a wide variety of creative experiences." Behavioral objectives for the course are stated, and, for each unit, the necessary understandings and activities related to the development of these understandings are listed. Appendices contain additional teaching notes for many of the activities and a short list of general reference books. The syllabus is considered to be under field evaluation in this edition. Feedback forms for teacher comments are included at the end of each unit. (AL)
