1 Forensic Science Content Standards and Objectives Forensic Science is an advanced level course that is an elective designed to provide students with hands-on experience in various aspects of a criminal investigation Utilizing 21 ' 1 Century skills students will demonstrate proficiency in evidence collection; interpretation and analysis of collected data, maintenance of data integrity, formulation of a conclusion/summary, and succinct communication offmdings -Students will engage in active inquiries, investigations, and hands-on activities for a minimum of 50o/o of the instructional time to develop conceptual understanding and research/laboratory skills as they evaluate the academic requirements and prepare for occupational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math Safety instruction is integrated into all activities The West Virginia Standards for 21" Century Leaming include the following components: 21" Century Content Standards and Objectives and 21st Century Leaming Skills and Technology Tools All West Virginia teachers are responsible for classroom instruction that integrates learning skills, technology tools, and content standards and objectives Hi h School Standard: 1 SCSFSl Forensic Science Nature and Annlication of Science Students will demonstrate an understanding of history and nature of science as a human endeavor encompassing the contributions of diverse cultures and scientists demonstrate the ability to use the inquiry process to solve problems relate science-technolo<>v-societal issues while usin<> a varietv of sources to construct and defend their solutions Performance Descrintors SCPDFS l Distin011ished Above Masterv Masterv Partial Masterv Novice Forensic Science students Forensic Science students Forensic Science students Forensic Science students Forensic Science students at the distinguished level at the above mastery level at the mastery level in the at the partial mastery level at the novice level in the in the nature and in the nature and nature and applications of in the nature and nature and applications of applications of science: applications of science: science: applications of science: science: implement safe practices implement safe practices implement safe practices implement safe practices implement safe practices as they design, conduct, as they design, conduct, as they design, conduct, as they conduct and revise as they conduct and revise experiments to and revise experiments, and revise experiments and experiments, then base experiments and base solve real world problems, analyze data for errors, and base conclusions on conclusions on conclusions on analyze data for errors, and base conclusions on observations and observations and observations and base conclusions on observations and experimental evidence, and experimental evidence, and experimental evidence, and observations and experimental evidence, and experimental evidence, and 67
