This includes materials to be used for a General Biology II course (or Introduction to Biology II course) for non-science majors.
Welcome to the OER Activity Pool for a General Biology II laboratory Due to COVID, the nature of the labs has shifted from face-to-face to a virtual/online format. The instructors have pivoted and began to develop virtual lab modules. Over the next year, they will continue to update and develop both face-to-face and virtual labs.Two faculty members have worked to create a repository of materials that can be used in place of a textbook, photo atlas, and lab manual. The faculty members are working on the exercises to create alternative laboratory exercises for each content piece. The content is constantly being updated to reflect revisions based on student feedback and student data analysis. The objectives for each exercise align with the majority of the publisher's Student Learning Objectives. The material is organized by content (subject matter) in modules. Each Module will contain 1) the different versions of the exercises 2) Teacher Material and 3) Student Material
This open course for Plants, Society, and the Environment was created under a Round Six ALG Textbook Transformation Grant. Topics include cell structure, photosynthesis, taxonomy, biomes, domestication, agriculture, and medicine.
This laboratory manual for Principles of Biology II with ancillary materials was created and revised under a Round Fourteen Mini-Grant. Topics include evolution, bacteria, protists, plants, fungi, sponges and jellyfish, flatworms and nematodes, mollusks and annelids, arthropods and echinoderms, chordates and mammals, and mammalian anatomy. The lab manual is separated by chapters, as are the PowerPoint slides and lab quizzes.
