The State of Connecticut and the Stamford Public Schools’ frameworks foster the development of interest in global issues and the ability to collect, analyze, and use data to explore and explain related science concepts for students in grades 9 and 10. For students in grades 11 and 12, the focus of learning shifts to the development of deep understanding of science concepts and principles and to the preparation for future studies and careers.

Alternatives to Dissection
Dissection is one of many instructional methods used in life science courses. Students may request alternatives to dissection. Alternatives include such materials as videos, computer programs, films, models, transparencies, charts, diagrams, dissecting microscopes and textbook overlays. If alternatives to dissection are requested, teacher assistance will be available at all times, and no grades may be adversely affected because alternatives are requested.
