  • Evolution: Intelligent Design?
    A Special Report from Natural History Magazine
    "Three proponents of Intelligent Design (ID) present their views of design in the natural world. Each view is immediately followed by a response from a proponent of evolution (EVO). The report, printed in its entirety, opens with an introduction by Natural History magazine and concludes with an overview of the ID movement."

Todd's College Teaching Teaching Philosophy I am a committed instructor who works hard to interest and motivate my students. As a lecturer I engage students by using classroom demonstrations, historical anecdotes and a style of presentation that conveys my enthusiasm for a topic. I encourage open discussion between teacher and student and strive to establish an enjoyable learning atmosphere. I consider it important that students assimilate the factual foundations of a course topic and develop a firm grasp of basic biological principles, however, I consider it essential that students learn thinking skills. Facts are quickly forgotten but ways of learning endure. I am a proponent and practitioner of active learning and find it especially effective to involve students in project-based assignments. This is an excellent way to engage a student's problem-solving abilities and tap his or her creative energies A final aspect of my teaching philosophy is the belief that students should be challenged to grapple with scientific uncertainties. If students are encouraged to explore the limits of knowledge, then they will learn to draw distinctions between what is known, what is theorized and what is on the fringe of our understanding. When students recognize these distinctions they come to understand that the limits of knowledge do not diminish what is known, nor do these limits encumber learning. Indeed, this is an intellectual frontier that presents an opportunity it invites discovery. An appreciation of these distinctions helps students gain confidence in expressing their doubts, ideas and insights about what they are taught. I strongly believe that a college education should provide this kind of confidence.

    By: Dr. Tik L. Liem
    This fascinating book for science teachers contain 507 pages with over 400 discrepant events to motivate students in learning science is specifically designed and written for elementary, junior high and senior high school teachers. It is a collection of 411 carefully selected and tested Discrepant Events. These are surprising, counterintuitive, and paradoxical phenomena, which are interest arousing and motivational. It is broad in scope, covering such topics as air, weather, characteristics of matter, chemicals, energy, static and current electricity, sound and light, space and earth science, plants and human biology. Each event is self-contained on one page and includes a materials list, procedure, questions and explanations and one or two clear sketches!
B2 "INVITATIONS TO SCIENCE INQUIRY" Supplement to 1st and 2nd Editions.....$27.50
    By: Dr. Tik L. Liem
    175 pages filled with 150 additional Discrepant Events (over the first edition) among which 50 are over and above the events in the second edition. More Discrepant Events have been added to each chapter of the first two editions. Like the first and second editions, emphasis have been placed in the use of simple and readily available materials such as jars, adhesive tape, straws, candles, paper clips, rubber bands, pins, needles, balls, marbles, eggs, clothespins and magnets. The author's choice of materials makes these ISI (Invitations to Science Inquiry) books especially useful for schools lacking in equipment and teachers lacking a strong science background.

Project AstroBio
What is Project AstroBio? In this innovative program twenty-five 3rd - 12th grade teachers from the Puget Sound region are paired each year with volunteer astronomers and other scientists who have an interest in working with local schools and organizations. Together, teachers and partner scientists participate in a hands-on training workshop, receive high quality resource materials, and develop a strategy for working together in and out of the classroom. There are a total of 68 Project AstroBio partnerships, from Everett to Olympia! "Classic" Project Astro, which began in Seattle in 1997, has become Project AstroBio as of 2002, to reflect a new and growing involvement in the sciences of astrobiology, which is the study of the origin, history, and extremes of life on Earth, as well as the possibility of life on other planets. Whereas in past years Project Astro teachers were paired solely with amateur, student, and professional astronomers, Project AstroBio teachers now may be paired with either astronomers or with scientists with more of a biology background. The range of science that can be done by hands-on activities now includes not only astronomy and related sciences, but also aspects of life in the universe. Partnerships involve more than just one-time visits:
Scientists and teachers commit to at least five school year visits. These may include hands-on activities, evening star parties, creating or assisting with a science club, going on field trips, doing science fair projects, and more.

Teaching Nursery Rhymes to Pre-readers GO TO THE TEACHER'S FORUM

There are a lot of different ways to approach teaching nursery rhymes to children. Many of the children probably know most of the rhymes, but some will not. As an introduction, you can first read (or sing) a rhyme to the children, while showing them the pictures. The children could then sing along with you. Word Families
Many of the nursery rhymes contain common word families. You can use these rhymes to teach these letter combinations (and how they are spelled and spoken), having the students sound them out after memorizing the rhyme. For a list of some common word families and a list of the word families contained in some nursery rhymes, click here . You can study one word family a week. Students can use the Little Explorers Picture Dictionary to look for more words that belong to word families.
