Biology Curriculum, Munster Senior High School.
Tyner, Ron; And Others
This paper describes the biology program at Munster Senior High School, Munster, Indiana. It is an individualized curriculum utilizing a multi-sensory systems approach, and is presently taught by a team of three teachers and one para-professional to 458 general biology students and 36 advanced biology students. Each student must complete 24 units; however, students work at their own optimum rate, and credit for the course is issued on the basis of units completed rather than on the traditional time basis. At the conclusion of each unit, students participate in a seminar and are tested on the material. All laboratories, audio-visual presentations, and tests are given concurrently and continuously throughout the class period. After completing eight fundamental units, students may choose any 16 of 36 alternative units to complete the course requirement. This freedom of choice enables students to select material according to their particular interests and abilities, and allows for more complete individualization of the curriculum. (JR)
