The US Biology Education Standards, New Biology Curricula and Results
Leonard, William H.
Journal of Biological Education, v38 n3 p108-112 2004
This article presents a brief history of the events leading up to the current US biology education standards, a brief examination of the National Science Education Standards for biology, and a description of the three recently developed biology curricula that were designed to address the new standards. Several evaluative studies of these curricula indicate they can be implemented and lead to significant learning. Finally, some thoughts on the challenges of fully implementing these newer curricula are given. (Contains 1 table.)
