Access Biology 1

by Florida Association of School Administrators

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Biology is the study of living things, what makes them up, and how they interact with the world around them.  Whenever possible, students should be involved with laboratory and field experiences to explore the living world around them. 

The 5-E model is used in this course as a way to lead students through scientific inquiry.  The steps are:
  • Engage- An activity, video, or application that engages the student and prepares the learner for the upcoming content.
  • Explore- Students explore the given topic to build interest and beginning hypotheses. Teachers guide students while allowing them to explore without being given the answers.
  • Explain- Students explain the concepts, theory, or ideas based on exploration.  The teacher may provide additional input to help students understand the topic.
  • Elaborate- The content is extended to new situations, examples, or applications. This is often a real-world connection.
  • Evaluate- A student product to demonstrate knowledge gained. Evaluation should also be embedded throughout all learning activities as the teacher and students continually assess (or self-assess) the level of content knowledge gained during the unit.
Access Biology is intended only for students with a significant cognitive disability and is designed to provide all students access to the general curriculum. The access points reflect increasing levels of complexity and depth of knowledge aligned with grade-level expectations. The access points included are intentionally designed to foster high expectations for students with significant cognitive disabilities and are tiered access to the general curriculum through three levels of access points (Independent- In, Supported- Su, and Participatory- Pa).
