1 Human Biology Syllabus/Online Course Plan Certificated Teacher: Hank Mendoza Date: Stage One Desired Results Course Title/Grade Level: Credit: one semester (.5) x two semesters (1) Estimate of hours per week engaged in learning activities Students will typically commit a minimum of 5 hours of class work per week. Prerequisites and/or recommended preparation: Student in Spokane Public Schools should have had previous exposure to an Introductory Physical Science Class as well as an Introductory Life Science Class. Course Overview: (Include at least one essential question and/or enduring understanding to indicate focus of the course.) This course serves as a first course examining the Human Body. This will be an in-depth course investigating and studying the human animal at the chemical, cellular, organismal, and population level. Students will learn about the anatomy and physiology of their own body, and how these systems interrelate to maintain homeostasis, or good health. Students will gain a new perspective on how their body functions, and how we function, as a system and organism, in our environment. This course should be of high interest to students who may be interested in pursuing a health science career, or who simply want a deeper understanding of the biology of the human body. Enduring Understandings for Course: Need modification 1) Systems thinking used to analyze complex situations. To be useful, a system needs to be specified as clearly as possible. Determine how systems function with respect to other systems. SYSB 2) Scientific progress requires the use of various methods appropriate for answering different kinds of research questions. Investigate. Plan and conduct scientific investigations, collect and analyze data. INQB 3) Conclusions must be logical, based on evidence, and consistent with prior established knowledge. INQC 4) Methods and procedures that scientists use to obtain evidence must be clearly reported to enhance opportunities for further investigation. INQD 5) Science affects society and cultures by influencing the way many people think about themselves, others, and the environment. APPA

2 6) It is important for all citizens to apply science and technology to critical issues that influence society. APPF 7) Cells contain specialized parts for determining essential functions such as regulation of cellular activities, energy capture and release, formation of proteins, waste disposal, the transfer of information, and movement. LS1C 8) Cells use DNA that forms their genes to encode enzymes and other proteins that allow a cell to grow and divide to produce more cells, and to respond to the environment. LS1G 9) All of the functions of the cell are based on chemical reactions. Food molecules are broken down to provide energy and the chemical constituents needed to synthesize other molecules. Breakdown and synthesis are made possible by proteins called enzymes. LS1F 10) Population growth is limited by the availability of matter and energy found in resources, the size of the environment, and the presence of competing and/or predatory organisms. LS2C 11) Random changes in the genetic makeup of cells and organisms (mutations) can cause changes in their physical characteristics or behaviors. If the genetic mutations occur in eggs or sperm cells, the changes will be inherited by offspring. While many these changes will be harmful, a small minority may allow the offspring to better survive and reproduce. LS3B (NOTE: Not thinking of these standards in terms of humans but rather bacterial/viral mutation in diseases ) Additional Items to consider : 12) EALR 4 : Matter and Energy Changes : PS2F All forms of life are composed of large molecules containing carbon. LS1A Carbon-containing molecules are the building blocks of life. List external resources and include cost for each. Simple lab supplies will be required. Most equipment should be readily available at home, or obtainable from supermarkets. This will need to be more detailed when you know what activities students will be doing! Establish Goals: (Grade Level Expectations) EALR 1-Systems: Predictability and Feedback 9-12 SYSB: Determine if a systems approach will be helpful in answering a question or solving a problem. EALR 2-Inquiry : Conducting Analyses and Thinking Logically 9-12 INQB : Plan and conduct a scientific investigation, choosing a method appropriate to the question being asked. Collect, analyze, and display data using calculators, computers, or other technical devices when available.

3 9-12 INQC : Draw conclusions supported by evidence from the investigation and consistent with established scientific knowledge. Analyze alternative explanations and decide which best fits the data and evidence INQD: Write a detailed laboratory report that includes: the question that motivated the study, a justification for the kind of investigation chosen, hypotheses (if any), a description of what was done, a summary of data in tables and graphs, and a conclusion, based on the evidence, that responds to the question EALR 3-Application : Science, Technology, and Society 9-12 APPA : Describe ways that scientific ideas have influenced society or the development of differing cultures. List questions that scientists investigate that are stimulated by the needs of society (e.g., medical research, global climate change) APPF: Critically analyze scientific information in current events to make personal choices or to understand public-policy decisions.*d EALR 4-Life Science : Structure and Functions of Living Organisms(LS1); Ecosystems (LS2); Biological Evolution (LS3) 9-12 LS1C : Draw, label, and describe the functions of components of essential structures within cells (e.g., cellular membrane, nucleus, chromosome, chloroplast, mitochondrion, ribosome) 9-12 LS1G : Explain that regulation of cell functions can occur by changing the activity of proteins within cells and/or by changing whether and how often particular genes are expressed LS1F : Explain how cells break down food molecules and use the constituents to synthesize proteins, sugars, fats, DNA and many other molecules that cells require. Describe the role that enzymes play in the breakdown of food molecules and synthesis of the many different molecules needed for cell structure and function. Explain how cells extract and store energy from food molecules LS2C : Explain factors, including matter and energy, in the environment that limit the growth of plant and animal populations in natural ecosystems LS3B : Describe the molecular process by which organisms pass on physical and behavioral traits to offspring, as well as the environmental and genetic factors that cause minor differences (variations) in offspring or occasional mistakes in the copying of genetic material that can be inherited by future generations (mutations). Explain how a genetic mutation may or may not allow a species to survive and reproduce in a given environment. Understandings: What will students understand (about what big ideas) as a result of the unit? Students will understand... Unit 1: The Human Body as a System (these should be reflective of district learning targets though these are of my own design) o The human body consists of a number of integrated systems o Studying the human body requires asking questions, performing experiments, using models, explaining data, and communicating information for reliability and feedback. o The human body operates in a homeostatic environment, that relies on positive and negative feedback mechanisms.
