Jagielski, Connie; And Others
This guide is designed as a tool to help teachers provide a variety of activities to meet the needs of students taking seventh grade life science. The guide is written to correlate with the textbook "Exploring Living Things" (Laidlaw publishers) and the related laboratory manual. As a guide, the curriculum may be used according to each teacher's individual situation; in some instances the teacher may concentrate only on activities that emphasize basic concepts, while in other situations the teacher may wish to go beyond the basics and emphasize advanced material and activities. Each chapter is represented in the guide with the major concepts to be taught, instructional objectives, and suggested activities. Additional activities which may be reproduced are included at the end of each chapter and in an appendix. Knowing there is not a "typical student," the guide simplifies methods for teaching a variety of student abilities by coding different levels of involvement. Symbols are used to identify assessments and activities: (1) considered to be essential learner outcomes; (2) requiring minimal reading skills for students with learning disabilities; and (3) involving more complicated work and indepth research.
