Course title

Virtual Biology 1


Concurrent or after Algebra 1

Course description

Through the biology performance expectations; students demonstrate course-appropriate proficiency in each of three dimensions. When students explore Disciplinary Core Ideas (Dimension 3); they will do so by engaging in Science and Engineering Practices (Dimension 1) and should be supported in making connections to the Crosscutting Concepts (Dimension 2) to link their understanding across the four disciplinary core domains. Each performance expectation contains one SEP and one CCC to be assessable and represents the student performance goal for the end of instruction; however; other SEPs and CCCs should be applied by students to support their progress leading up to the end of instruction.
