Extractions: This program works best with the widest difference in ages, High School- Elementary School. You can use any type of elementary class whether they have special needs or not. The hardest part is convincing the elementary teacher to give up some class time for this project. Notice that these lessons are really activity-based. Students learn best this way and elementary schools have small science budgets and no equipment to perform these lessons. Using high school students to teach Biology concepts to elementary students, in particular deaf students. This is accomplished by traveling once a month (we go to them but you could have the younger students travel to see you) to the elementary classroom with activities / lessons that have been selected and prepared by the older students. The high school students have run through the lesson teaching each other finding flaws and correcting misconceptions / inaccuracies. Evaluation is by a pre-post attitude inventory and having the elementary teachers reinforce positive behaviors. Reinforcing major Biology / Science concepts by reteaching them to a younger, deaf audience. Observing the younger students' enthusiasm for the subject matter.
Applications Of CoachLab Probeware In Biology that let you integrate mathematics into your biology lessons. allows you to use Coachto teach concepts such allows you to create your own activities or modify http://www.harris-educational.com/Probeware/disciplines/biology.htm
Extractions: Resources and Information for Educators who use Probeware Science * Mathematics * Technology Education Introduction Biology, as it has been presented to students in the past is traditionally more of a qualitative science than a quantitative science. Experiments involving the collection of data were difficult because of the specialized equipment required, or because of the long intervals of time needed to observe changes to living systems. CoachLab probeware makes these problems go away and makes experiments possible that could not have been attempted ten years ago. On this page you will find information about using CoachLab software and hardware (as well as TI-CBL) in Biology. Coach can record data for long periods of time (many days) thus allowing you to record and control biological experiments that monitor processes that take a long time. Coach can control outputs and equipment thus allowing you to control and manipulate a variable in an experiment. Coach has tools that let you integrate mathematics into your biology lessons.

RESEARCH ETHICS Intended for high school biology classes.Category Science Science in Society Research Ethics We hope to teach science as a process; to accomplish this we use exper imental labsand Grades 9 12; biology and/or Student Research Suggested activities http://www.accessexcellence.org/AE/AEPC/WWC/1992/research_ethics.html
Extractions: 1992 Woodrow Wilson Biology Institute We hope to teach science as a process; to accomplish this we use experimental labs and independent research projects. When we discuss science as a process, we usually present an idealized view which holds that honesty is a necessary basis for scientific endeavor. Recently, the media have reported misconduct and fraud by scientists. A possible consequence is the inference by students that cheating is common among scientists and that there is little connection between what is taught in the classroom and what happens in the "real world." By extension, the body of knowledge developed by honest scientists is also suspect. By evaluating historical instances of misconduct and exploring the ethics involved in honest data analysis, it is hoped that students will begin to understand the consequences of scientific misconduct and the importance of self-regulation within the scientific community.

Extractions: As a jointly-appointed faculty member in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction (School of Education) and the Department of Biological Sciences, I have teaching responsibilities in both departments and, as a result, I work with very different groups of students. This year I have taught BIOL 205-206, Biology for Elementary School Teachers, for the Department of Biological Sciences. This course is specifically designed to provide important biological concepts to non-science majors who will nonetheless be required to teach science to their own students. Meeting the needs of this unique student audience (prospective elementary school teachers) necessitates designing a course that provides a careful blend of interesting and important science content with relevant laboratory activities that teach this content and provide examples of possible elementary school activities. BIOL 205, with an enrollment of approximately 300 students, emphasizes the concepts of ecology and cell biology, while BIOL 206 focuses on principles of genetics, evolution, taxonomy, and human anatomy and physiology. With one hour per week for lecture and four hours per week for laboratory activities, students have ample opportunities to apply the concepts being discussed in the lectures and in the textbook as they participate in laboratory sessions. The courses are undergoing constant revision, especially as we try to find meaningful ways to integrate computers and other forms of technology into the course curriculum.
Extractions: The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate to the biology student that the cell is not a static object. It is a complex functioning unit carrying on those activities necessary for life. This unit will emphasize the role of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) and cell organelles within the cell as interrelated cooperating and functioning components dependent upon one another for the survival of the whole. OBJECTIVES: This unit will follow the unit in which the students have learned the structures and functions of the cell organelles and cell dynamics. This unit will include instruction in DNA replication, transcription, and translation. The test at the end of the unit will be one in which the students become a living working cell within the confines of the classroom.

Extractions: Curriculum Publication Sales Education Policies Agency Web Sites ... Publications Science Curriculum Goal Nature of Science This strand is designed to help students understand the human dimensions of science, the nature of scientific thought, and the role of science in society. Biology is particularly rich in examples of science as a human endeavor, its historical perspectives, and the development of scientific understanding. Science as a Human Endeavor - Intellectual honesty and an ethical tradition are hallmarks of the practice of science. The practice is rooted in accurate data reporting, peer review, and making findings public. This aspect of the nature of science can be implemented by designing instruction that encourages students to work collaboratively in groups, to design investigations, formulate hypothesis, collect data, reach conclusions, and present their findings to their classmates. The content studied in biology provides an opportunity to present science as the basis for medicine, ecology, forensics, biotechnology, and environmental studies. The diverse biology content allows for looking at science as a vocation. Scientist, artist, and technician are just a few of the many careers in which a biology background is necessary.
Extractions: The Traditional Course General Biology, a two-semester introductory course, is required of all students majoring in Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Biochemistry, and Allied Health. Approximately 260 students enroll in the course annually, 15% of the typical first-year class. Almost 10% of students major in Biology, the second largest major at the university. The university offers four lecture sections of General Biology in fall and three in spring, with approximately thirty-five to forty students per section. Each lecture section meets three times a week for fifty minutes. Seven lab sections are offered in fall and six in spring, with approximately twenty students per section. Each lab section meets once a week to complete twelve three-hour modules per semester. Four different faculty teach the four lecture sections, and five faculty plus additional professional staff teach the labs. In the traditional format, General Biology lectures are taught in lecture format using a historic approach, with all faculty using the same syllabus. In-class technology consists of an overhead projector with transparencies. Labs consist of a series of modules, each of which is designed to be completed in the three-hour lab session. Students do "cookbook" type experiments in which they memorize information rather than apply specific scientific methodology to answer biological questions. Neither lectures nor labs use computer-based instructional materials or online databases, despite the integral use of computers in biological research today.
