SDUHSD Biology: the Living Earth Instructional Materials


For the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years, SDUHSD biology teachers and students piloted three instructional materials aligned with California's Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for the three-course model. In this model, Earth-Space Science concepts are integrated with biology content (click here for more details on this course model). During the spring of 2021, SDUHSD biology teachers will recommend one of these programs for adoption beginning with the 2021-2022 school year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of our school campuses, this public review will be held virtually. We appreciate your involvement in this process.
