Biology 12 - Hybrid

Instructional Approach

Individualized Biology 12 (Apologia) will be using a hybrid  Online/Individualized approach this year.  Content and instructions will  be housed in Moodle giving students instant access to lessons,  assessment tools, grades and feedback while allowing them the freedom to  complete the work in a traditional individualized manner offline, using  the Apologia curriculum.

Course Structure

Students will follow the outline in Moodle, progressing through the 8  units of study (see below).  Each unit contains directions and the  necessary files to complete before moving on in the course.

These activities may include textbook reading assignments, written  assignments, experiments and tests.  Hand-In boxes and tests are  available where required for students to submit work or assess their  understanding of the material.

  • Cell Biology/Cell Processes & Applications
  • Digestive System
  • Circulatory & Lymphatic Systems
