Biology Teaching Field, Grades 9-12
  The biology curricula enable students to build a knowledge base about their physical and biological universe; foster an attitude of inquiry; and develop a functional understanding of the process of science, the interrelatedness of the various scientific disciplines, and the interactions of science, society, and technology. The biology curricula also provide opportunities for students to develop a variety of laboratory, field, and technical skills vital to success in the pursuit of knowledge in biology. In addition to the above goals, the biology 9-12 teaching field complies with and endorses the conceptual framework of the Shepherd University Teacher Education Program and strives to produce teachers who are capable reflective problem solvers.
