    Remote Learning Plan: Evolution "Addie" High School

    Overview

    This Remote Learning Plan was created by Stephanie Henry, Dannika Nelson, and Emily Winter in collaboration with Sara Cooper and Annette Weise as part of the 2020 ESU-NDE Remote Learning Plan Project. Educators worked with coaches to create Remote Learning Plans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The attached Remote Learning Plan is designed for high school biology students. Students initially investigate the case of a young girl with a life-threatening infection of pan-resistant bacteria. This case sparks questions that lead them to investigate the growing prevalence of such cases and the discrepancies between antibiotic use in their communities and CDC recommendations. They expand their investigations to look at population changes occurring in a population of birds (juncos) which exhibit noticeable differences in physical (and behavioral*)traits from the past 60 years. . This Remote Learning Plan addresses the following NDE Standards: SC.HS.10.5.B, SC.HS.10.5.C, SC.HS.10.5.D, and SC.HS.10.5.E.
