I. Title- High school Neotropical biology, alignment to meet the tenth grade science proficiency objectives for the state of Ohio.
II. Purpose of paper - Introduction
1. Demonstrate that a curriculum for Neotropical biology meets many the objectives of the tenth grade science proficiency (this paper will justify the addition of a Neotropical biology class at the high school level).
2. Present the curriculum that overlaps science proficiency standards and neotropical biology
3. Objectives and curriculum will be presented and organized.
4. Justification of methodologies.
III. Brief presentation of methodologies that are useful for meeting science standards.
Evaluate or design scientific investigations to formulate and/or revise scientific explanations and models.
Evaluate information derived from popular technical sources to determine it's scientific validity in making evidence-based decisions.
Given a personal, societal or global circumstance, identify, interpret, and/or apply safety precautions and equipment.
Given a particular scientific theory or protocol, explain how and/or why the theory or protocol may have changed over time.
Relate uses, properties, and chemical processes (reactions) of matter to the behavior and /or arrangement of small particles, which compose matter.
Relate internal and external sources of energy in the earth system to processes and cycles (air, water, or land) occurring since earth origin.
Describe relations among the Earth, other planets, and other objectives in the solar system.
Relate changes in the form or distribution of matter to the cyclic and finite nature of resources within the closed Earth system.
Analyze and compare regulatory processes (neural, endocrine, immune) in living things.
Relate the chemical basis of life to heredity, diversity, species survival, adaptations, and extinction's.
Relate heredity of organisms to the long-term survival of populations based on mutations, variations in populations and changes in populations as a result of differential reproductions.
