Student Learning Outcomes–students will 

  • explain the disciplinary core ideas of biology and guide the learning of others in key principles of biology outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards;

  • apply science and engineering practices in NGSS;

  • incorporate instructional materials and teaching strategies to a community of diverse students;

  • explain how cross-cutting ideas bridge disciplinary boundaries, uniting core ideas throughout the fields of science and engineering;

  • appropriately respond to potential safety hazards in different learning environments, ,e.g., laboratory, classroom, field.
