Biology Curriculum Guide. Bulletin 1646.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
This curriculum guide, developed to establish statewide curriculum standards for the Louisiana Competency-based Education Program, contains the minimum competencies and process skills that should be included in a biology course. It consists of: (1) a rationale for an effective science program; (2) a list and description of four major goals of science; (3) a list and description of eight basic process skills (such as predicting and classifying) and five integrated processes (such as controlling variables and defining operationally); and (4) a nine-part curriculum outline. These parts provide performance objectives correlated with a concept, process skill(s), and suggested activities for each of the following major topic areas: introduction to biology; cell biology; general reproduction; evolution; genetics; scientific basis of classification; the functioning organism (protists, plants, animals); human anatomy and physiology (examining the skeletal, muscular, digestive, circulatory, excretory, integumentary, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems); and ecology. The outline is designed to allow flexibility in the teaching of Biology I from either the systematic or the phylogenetic approach. A list of references, a list of audiovisual suppliers, and brief comments on evaluation techniques are also provided. (JN)
