See life in a whole new way!
The Florida Miller & Levine Biology is here! Developed by two preeminent biologists and passionate educators, Ken Miller and Joe Levine, this blended print and digital curriculum immerses high school students in biological inquiry. The course blends core ideas, scientific and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts to support the NGSSS performance expectations. Students interact with natural and local phenomena through problem-based learning, scientific reasoning, case studies, and laboratory experiments to:
- Ignite Curiosity: Authentic case studies and laboratory investigations drive inquiry-based learning. Students directly interact with science phenomena. They engage in real-world problem solving, science and engineering practices, and data analysis.
- Promote Understanding: Science textbooks challenge many students. Miller & Levine Biology for Florida provides critical reading support, visual aids, ELD strategies, performance-based assessment and self-monitoring tasks to improve understanding and enjoyment.
- Inspire Learning: Problem-based learning inspires students to seek out solutions. A new CISD Instructional Model (Connect, Investigate, Synthesize, Demonstrate) creates a student-driven environment based on 21st century competencies.
