The enclosed materials compose a complete Biology course with individual units that have been used extensively in my classroom for many years. The PowerPoints and diverse collection of learning materials contain more than 900 pages of materials and over 1,500 PowerPoint slides. Many of the units were part of the Living Environment Biology course taught in New York State, but additional materials involving plants and genetic crosses have been added to make these materials useful in designing any introductory 40 week biology course. The PowerPoints and cloze notes associated with the individual units will allow you to implement your instruction in clear and methodical manner.
All units come with a PowerPoint with associated cloze notes. Many homework assignments are available for each unit, along with a final test/examination Each unit also contains the learning goals for the unit, correlation to the NGSS and Common Core standards, as well as the NY Living Environment core curriculum performance indicators. Many units contain one or more lab activities, a jeopardy review game, homework assignments and/or projects, review quizzes for students and additional quizzes to be used by the teacher.
You can use the entire contents of this zip file to create a new or improved course, or pick and choose the lessons you want to teach and apply to your own curriculum as you see fit. Many of the files are very editable to your needs.
A brief curriculum map is also enclosed in the zip file to give you a short idea as to how I utilized the materials. Please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com if you have questions about the materials or would like input on how I would utilize them if you purchase the unit. I welcome any questions you may have.
If the contents of this complete course were purchased as individual zip files for each unit, it would cost more than $70 for these materials.
