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.

Extractions: The Biology Corner is a resource site for biology and science teachers. The Lesson Plans sections contains classroom activities, labs and worksheets, feel free to change any of these to suit your own classroom needs. The Webquest sections contains inquiry based projects that utilize the internet. Internet lessons (also called miniquests) are smaller activities that use one or two science related web sites for the students to explore and answer questions about. Again, feel free to modify these activities so that they work for your class and your style of teaching. I've been making it a personal mission to locate and compile interactive science education sites. Some web programs like Flash can create some amazing virtual labs that students can really benefit from. You will find many of these places in the section under internet lessons, all of which utilize fantastic websites to help students understand scientific concepts. Please contact me if you know of other sites (particularly shockwave virtual labs) and I'll add more lessons. Answer keys are not included, due to the fact my students use this site.

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: by Brett Glass The human immune system, which daily defends our bodies against invaders ranging from viruses to multicellular parasites, is truly a wondrous security system. Honed by millions of years of evolution, it excels at identifying, immobilizing and destroying nasty bugs which themselves are rapidly evolving new strategies and disguises. When cells of a healthy body first encounters a pathogen, the immune system wastes no time responding to the threat. Specialized cells, working in concert, form a sort of chemical consensus about how to identify the invading organisms usually via unique proteins which appear on the invaders' outside surfaces. Messenger cells then travel throughout the body, stimulating other cells to destroy anything which is recognized as an intruder. During this process, the patient may develop a fever, which while it may temporarily hobble the individual is intended to make the body's internal environment less hospitable to some invaders. When the system works as it should, the infection is quickly eradicated, the state of heightened immune response ends, fever subsides, and the body returns to normal, healthy, day-to-day living. While it retains the ability to recognize the organism that infected it for many years thereafter, the body does not again assume a defensive posture unless there is another threat.

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.

Family Last year, I put together these page of facts on Anthrax and West Nile Virus Rare Books lecture in Jill Fankhauser's History of Science Class with pictures taken by David Fankhauser. HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN THESE HAILSTONES: I collected these hail stones following a hailstorm on 6 April 2001 in SW Ohio. I am calling them "star hail stones." I have been unable to find any record of such stones, nor explanation of how they may have formed. See my hypothesis below the picture. (Click the picture for a larger version.) My hypothesis: We know that hail stones are formed by repeatedly being carried high in thunderheads where it freezes, and cycle back down through warmer zones where they pick up more water which is subsequently frozen as they are carried up again. If the stones are being carried upward near a windshear zone of up and down drafts, they would spin. As they spin, water would move to the outer edge of the spinning stone. If freezing occurred at foci instead of evenly, points would begin to form. These points would subsequently serve as conduits for additional water to be carried during spinning, and freeze there, extending the "ray." If you have knowledge of such stones
