-- NGSS, Common Core and NY Living Environment Core Curriculum correlations for the enclosed information.

Human Respiration Learning Goals

Upon completion of this unit the student will:

1. correctly state the respiratory function(s) of the following human respiratory
structures; nostrils, nasal passages, pharynx, glottis, epiglottis, larynx, trachea,
bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli (lung), and the diaphragm.

2. given a human respiration diagram, correctly label the structures listed
in objective number one.

3. explain how gases are exchanged between the alveoli and capillaries
surrounding them.

4. explain the mechanical process of breathing.

5. discuss the chief symptom(s) of the following respiratory disorders; pneumonia,
asthma, and emphysema.

6. recognize that all organisms must have a thin, moist membrane for the
respiratory exchange of gases.

7. describe the feedback mechanism which regulates human respiratory rate
through our medulla.

NGSS Standard

HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.

NY State Living Environment Core Curriculum

Performance Indicator 1.2

Describe and explain the structures and functions of the human body at different organizational levels (e.g., systems, tissues, cells, organelles).

Major Understandings

1.2a Important levels of organization for structure and function include organelles,
cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and whole organisms.

1.2b Humans are complex organisms. They require multiple systems for digestion,
respiration, reproduction, circulation, excretion, movement, coordination, and immunity. The systems interact to perform the life functions.

1.2c The components of the human body, from organ systems to cell organelles,
interact to maintain a balanced internal environment. To successfully accomplish
this, organisms possess a diversity of control mechanisms that detect deviations
and make corrective actions.

1.2d If there is a disruption in any human system, there may be a corresponding
imbalance in homeostasis.

1.2e The organs and systems of the body help to provide all the cells with their basic
needs. The cells of the body are of different kinds and are grouped in ways
that enhance how they function together.
