Standard 1: Integrated Curriculum / Projects
9th grade:
From Kellett: Difficult to incorporate when I have all my 9th grade academy students mixed in with non-academy 9th-12th graders, who are all at different levels. At the conclusion of the school year, when preparing for Biology Honors EOC, we will tackle the body systems to work cooperatively with Mrs. Jenkins (all students, even non-academy will participate even though it may not make complete sense to them). Will integrate body systems and genetic diseases towards the end of the school year in the Medical Skills class, to help students prepare for the Biology EOC.
From Jenkins: Many of the activities and curriculum regarding cell growth, cancer, and tumors that was from the medical conference at UF were used during our unit on cell reproduction. Human body systems, lots of integration/overlap with your modules and then learning targets covering the brain, cardiovascular system, digestive system, and male/female reproductive system structures/functions. Genetic diseases and inheritance patterns: careers with gene therapy, genetic counseling, etc.

10th grade:
From Meadows: Covered cells, tissues, and reviewed the periodic table of elements for better understanding of the human body.
From Faria: (see attachment) With the weird year we had, I was not able to do much but we did this activity when studying chemical bonds and molecule polarity. Students focused on the drawing of the molecule and identifying if the molecule was polar or not. Students did not present to the class. Hopefully, next year we are able to do so.

11th grade:
From Meadows: Researched various diseases and CMAA information. Researched information pertaining to their body systems projects.
From Hicks: The beginning of the year we discussed the lack of knowledge of the human anatomy/medicine that the Puritans had. Alsp, small pox was referred to in the novel we read, Huckleberry Finn, expressing the fear of the disease at the time due to lack of vaccination. And tetanus and its dangers were referred to in the novel set in the 1920's, Their Eyes Were Watching God; one of the main characters died from it because it wasn't detected early enough, and due to race, he wasn't treated with priority because he was forced to labor in the community after a hurricane.

12th grade:
From Meadows: Researched various information relating to healthcare.
From Cruz:
