Biology 10-20-30 Curriculum Guide 1984.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
The Alberta senior high school biology program consists of a core and elective components, both of which are mandatory for instruction. The core represents those skills, attitudes, and concepts required by all students throughout the province; the elective component allows for variety and flexibility in the choice of topics, with emphasis on issues and applications relative to the concept areas presented. This curriculum guide is designed for use with the program. It includes: (1) a discussion of program philosophy; (2) list of eight general objectives for science education; (3) a description of program structure and organization, examining program elements, core-elective format, credit structure, program specificity, historical perspectives, and course direction (considering biology 10, biology 20, and biology 30 separately), and learning resources; (4) the general goals and specific objectives for biology 10, 20, and 30, a consideration of objectives related to process skills (including inquiry), psychomotor skills, and attitudes, and (in chart format) concepts correlated with subject matter and suggested elective topics; and (5) a discussion of classroom organization (considering such areas as student projects, laboratory safety, evaluation, and use of microscopes). Information on experimental studies and controversial issues is provided in appendices. (JN)
