Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

SC (9-12) Biology
11. Classify animals according to type of skeletal structure, method of fertilization and reproduction, body symmetry, body coverings, and locomotion.
skeletal structure—vertebrates, invertebrates;
fertilization—external, internal;
reproduction—sexual, asexual;
body symmetry—bilateral, radial, asymmetrical;
body coverings—feathers, scales, fur;
locomotion—cilia, flagella, pseudopodia
SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
12. Identify structures and functions of the reproductive system.
  • Differentiating between male and female reproductive systems
  • Recognizing stages of pregnancy and fetal development
  • Identifying disorders of the reproductive system
  • Examples: endometriosis, sexually transmitted diseases, prostate cancer
    TC2 (9-12) Computer Applications
    6. Utilize advanced features of multimedia software, including image, video, and audio editing.
    TC2 (9-12) Computer Applications
    13. Demonstrate collaborative skills using curriculum-related content in digital environments.
    Examples: completing assignments online; interacting with experts and peers in a structured, online learning environment
    SC2015 (9-12) Biology
    13. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain how organisms are classified by physical characteristics, organized into levels of taxonomy, and identified by binomial nomenclature (e.g., taxonomic classification, dichotomous keys).
    a. Engage in argument to justify the grouping of viruses in a category separate from living things.
    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    10. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to differentiate between the male and female reproductive systems, including pathological conditions that affect each.
    a. Use models to demonstrate what occurs in fetal development at each stage of pregnancy.
    SC2015 (9-12) Environmental Science
    17. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate geological and biological information to determine the types of organisms that live in major biomes.
    a. Analyze and interpret data collected through geographic research and field investigations (e.g., relief, topographic, and physiographic maps; rivers; forest types; watersheds) to describe the biodiversity by region for the state of Alabama (e.g., terrestrial, freshwater, marine, endangered, invasive).
