Miley, James F.
This unit of instruction deals with a study of South Florida as an ecosystem. Consideration is given to meteorological features, geological foundations, chemical analyses, and biotic communities characteristic of South Florida. A major attribute is the development of monographs about the unique natural wealth of the lower South Florida peninsula. It is required that a student should have satisfactorily completed course work in biology equivalent to one year before taking this course. Relevant state-adopted texts are listed in the booklet. It provides performance objectives and the course outline and suggests laboratory exercises, student projects, demonstrations, field trips, and guest speakers. Particular emphasis is placed on the use of monographs, and suggested topics with specific instructions are provided. Also listed are relevant films, slides, and models from the Dade County Audiovisual Center. Supplementary references are recommended, and a master sheet is provided relating each suggested activity to the specific performance objectives. (EB)
