Extractions: window.document.form1.pagename.value = window.document.location; Genentech's Access Excellence Lessons Genentech has collected an outstanding group of high school level unit/activity plans for a wide range of biology-related topics, from genetics to environmental science. Some are also interdisciplinary in nature and suitable for gifted curricula. The teachers who wrote them have included specific advice for implementation. Many ideas are adaptable for middle school or special ed, while more are also suitable for AP or honors level classes. The plans emphasize authentic assessment methods which could be substituted for traditional tests/exams. While some are short-term, others include ideas for structuring long-term units or entire years of study around these projects or themes. We have listed the lessons below, grouped by topic for easier reference. All links are directly to Genentech's site. Genentech specifies that these materials may be reprinted only for educational and classroom use.

Also ENSIS Professor of Quantitative Palaeoecology, Environmental Change Research Centre, University College London and Adjunct Professor, Department of Biology, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario. Email address: email@example.com Research interests and current activities: Recent atmospheric pollution and environmental change on Spitsbergen, as recorded by lake sediments. This was supported by NFR (Norway) and involves Viv Jones (London), Neil Rose (London), Don Monteith (London), Steve Brooks (London), Sylvia Peglar (Bergen), Barb Zeeb (Kingston), John Smol (Kingston), Ali Betts (Toronto), John Boyle (Liverpool), and Peter Appleby (Liverpool). Theory of quantitative palaeoecology, palynological theory and practical techniques, quantitative reconstruction of past environments from palaeoecological data, numerical methods for the handling and analysis of Quaternary biostratigraphical data and of modern surface samples, and the use of randomisation procedures for testing palaeoecological hypothesis. Active collaborators include John Line (Cambridge), Cajo ter Braak (Wageningen), Steve Juggins (Newcastle), and Petr Smilauer (Ceske Budejovice). Much of this work is supported indirectly by other research grants, particularly from NFR (Norway) and the EU.
Extractions: B.A., Environmental Biology, University of California at Santa Barbara, 1979 Professional and Personal Interests My interests are botany, plant ecology, and in conducting research projects with undergraduate students (see below) at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. I am also the coordinator of the Master of Technology program at SE OSU. My writing projects include books about how plants keep the world alive and about the intersection between Christianity and evolution, and professional articles about research techniques as applied to undergraduate education. I teach occasional Sunday classes. My particular passion is for protecting, and spreading the knowledge of God's wonderful plant kingdom (see Isaiah 41: 17-20).
Extractions: Uno, Gordon E. 1999. Handbook on teaching undergraduate science courses: a survival training manual. Saunders College, New York, 159 p. $15.00, ISBN: 0-03-025926-6. Where do you turn for help? Your first resource is commonly the faculty at your school. This is, of course, a great place to start. Gordon Uno has provided a new resource that can help you get through this exciting and stressful time and serve as a resource long after you have lost your junior faculty status. Whether you are just starting your science teaching career, or you have been teaching for years, Handbook on teaching undergraduate science courses: a survival training manual is a resource that you will find useful. Uno begins the book with a discussion of teaching philosophy and by defining the characteristics of effective teachers. This discussion is central because most of the students that we see in our introductory courses are non-science majors. To be effective introductory science teachers, we must always keep this in mind. The importance of this fact is highlighted in Uno's discussion of instructional responsibilities and how to design your course.

Extractions: Dr. A. Ceska, P.O.Box 8546, Victoria, B.C. Canada V8W 3S2 From: AR Kruckeberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) originally printed in Douglasia Winter 1997 A novel botanical gathering occurs annually over the border in Canada. Novel, indeed, in the waning years of this century, when botanists now most often gather to share their findings and techniques from laboratories equipped to probe the mysteries of DNA molecules and proteins. Rather, Botany BC harks back to the days when field botany (read, Natural History!) was a common and respected pursuit. Especially in the study and appreciation of regional floras is the "gel jock" botanist supplanting the field botanist. Yet Botany BC is hardly an anachronism; it thrives each year on the premise that total immersion in one's regional flora can be fun and an unforgettable learning experience. This year Botany BC focused on unusual habitats within the Prince George area. We visited a serpentine outcrop (Murray Ridge) and a limestone habitat (Pope Mountain), both located near Fort St James and the scenic Stuart Lake. With the aid of botanists familiar with the local flora, we put together creditable check lists for these two, and other, edaphic sites. I had given a talk the night before on Pacific Northwest serpentine ecology, so all were primed to encounter a unique vegetation. And it was! On Murray Ridge we witnessed the serpentine form of maidenhair fern (
Extractions: Source: ERIC Clearinghouse on Rural Education and Small Schools Las Cruces NM. Improving the Science and Mathematic Achievement of Mexican American Students Through Culturally Relevant Science. ERIC Digest. The underrepresentation of minorities in science, mathematics, and engineering has been well documented. Suggested interventions frequently mention better preparation in mathematics and science at the elementary and secondary school levels and increasing the number of intervention programs. The success of intervention programs is well established, but what needs examining are the strategies a classroom teacher can use to help Mexican American students excel in mathematics and science. This digest will explore the use of a culturally relevant curriculum as one strategy. WHY IS A CULTURALLY RELEVANT CURRICULUM NEEDED?
