									          MSBSD Biology Scope and Sequence

   The mission of MSBSD K-12 Science is to provide developmentally appropriate, standards-based
   science instruction. Our students will connect science content and process skills through an inquiry
   based, content-rich, student centered approach. They will apply scientific habits of mind as
   successful, informed, and ethical participants in a rapidly changing world.

   The high school science goals – To produce scientifically literate students who are able to:
       Apply scientific concepts and content to think and communicate critically and logically.
       Use scientific inquiry to develop the ability to think and apply scientific process skills.
       Construct questions, design methods, gather and analyze data, formulate conclusions, and communicate results.
       Utilize the appropriate technology and media throughout the scientific process.
       Formulate, justify, and apply scientifically based decisions.
       Evaluate the history of science and its dynamic and evolving nature.

How to Read the Scope and Sequence
   The various columns are labeled with concept, objective, and GLE or content strand number.
   Each box contains one learning objective with the Bloom’s Taxonomy level of understanding.
   The objectives are numbered by course name and numerical character {i.e. BIO 1 means the course Biology,
      Objective 1}.

Each objective is not necessarily a discreet lesson. Many objectives will overlap with other objectives or recur throughout the course.
The recommended times include instruction, practice, review and assessment.
