A Collaboration to Improve Teachers’ Understanding of Science: Experimental Botany for Teachers at the University of Louisville Andrew C. Kemp and Arnold J. Karpoff, University of Louisville Current reform efforts at both the state and national level call for school science to be more inquiry-oriented with students as active participants in the learning process (NRC, 1996). Yet teachers of science may not be able to carry out the suggested reforms in instruction because they have not experienced such learning for themselves (Howard Hughes Medical Institute, 1996; NRC, 1999h, 2001).

Preschool (Children's House) Practical Life
Practical life is the area of the classroom where children learn coordination, confidence, cooperation, independence, and order. These activities include care of self, care of the environment, and physical skills. Care-of-self activities include handwashing, snack preparation, and dressing activities. These activities help the young child gain confidence in him/herself. Care-of-the-environment activities can include plant and animal care, as well as cleaning activities. Sweeping, scrubbing, and polishing all help children learn the importance of order. If steps are done incorrectly, the results can be less than desirable.
The area of practical life called "physical skills" incorporates numerous activities. Here children work on pouring, scooping, twisting, lacing, squeezing and pounding just to name a few of the activities. These activities are great for learning coordination skills. The small motor skills are a prerequisite for developing strong capable hands that will be needed for writing activities. The activities in physical skills will vary and meet all abilities and age levels. Let's take a look at "lacing" as one such activity:

    Department of Botany
    The Department of Botany has a long tradition of public service that includes both organized activities as well as individual efforts of its faculty and students. The Department of Botany views outreach activities as an important element of its mission to increase and disseminate knowledge about the biology of plants, and its cumulative range of activities reflect this.
    Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage
    A leading outreach activity is the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage is a three-day program of conducted nature walks, motorcades and photographic tours in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Cosponsors with the Botany Department include the Gatlinburg Garden Club, the Southern Appalachian Botanical Society, the Great Smoky Mountains Natural History Association and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. More information about the Pilgrimage, which just celebrated its 50 th anniversary, can be found at

    In the first place do you know what a botanist is? A botanist is a scientist who studies the biology of plants. Studying plants is important because without them you would be cold, naked, and hungry. Also we think plants are attractive so we use them to decorate our homes, both inside and out, and use them to celebrate special events from birth to death. People who call themselves botanists usually study basic plant biology, which can lead to work in agriculture, forestry, and horticulture. My job is at a university, so I teach students about botany and I teach students how to do research, how to study plants. That tells you a lot about how I spend my days, although it is hard to decide what is typical. I give lectures about economically important plants, plant diversity, plant taxonomy, plant identification, and fungi. So I must prepare materials and lecture notes for class. I also teach laboratories and field trips where students get hands on experience with the subjects of their studies. Laboratories and field trips take lots of preparation. Our university has a teaching collection of plants, about 50,000 dried plants filed in an herbarium, a collection that I manage and care for. A greenhouse is filled with living plant specimens for teaching, and I must know just about everything in the collection and how to use it for teaching. We have many rare and exotic species; some I acquired from exotic places on my travels.

    Ivoryton, Connecticut
    Bushy Hill Field School Bushy Hill Field School has been offering classes in natural history and primitive studies since 1985. We provide programs at our 650 acre site or at schools and other sites, such as nearby ocean sites. We also offer field work at your school and properties in your town that you may wish to utilize for environmental education. FIELD TRIPS TO BUSHY HILL: PRIMITIVE STUDIES: This is our most popular offering, done for one to four classes at a time. We are set-up in different stations that show daily living in prehistoric Connecticut, contact period Connecticut ( circa 1650) and the plains culture of the mid-nineteenth century. Our replicate wigwams and teepee are outfitted to look lived in during the targeted period and skills and seasonal happenings are interpreted to shed light on living in accordance with what the environment could offer. MAPLE SUGARING: This is a sweet learning experience. As the winter snows slowly recede, the days begin to get longer. We know that spring is just around the corner. This has traditionally been the time in New England to harvest the sweet sap of the sugar maple tree. Our 2 hour program uses the process of making maple syrup to teach math, science and nature awareness. Students come away with an understanding of the whole syrup making process from the tree to the sugar house to the table. WETLANDS PROGRAM: a popular spring offering that features probing the pond with nets, buckets and screens, a walk through the boardwalk of our cedar swamp and a look at a pond water under a microscope.

    The ROM Herbaria,
    Center for Biodiversity and Conservation Biology
    Location: 3rd Floor, 14 Queen's Park Crescent W, Toronto, Ontario The mandate of the ROM Herbaria is to develop and make responsible use of collections of specimens and associated documents which, as fully as possible within the limitations of available resources, represent the state of knowledge of living and Quaternary species of vascular and cryptogamic plants; to exhibit, study and carry out research on these collections and the living organisms they represent, to make the collections available to qualified individuals for research or reference, and to disseminate information based on them. The ROM Herbaria comprises three principal collections: the Vascular Plant Herbarium , a collection of Quaternary sediment cores, macro- and microfossils, and modern reference material (pollen, seeds, etc.), and the Cryptogamic Herbarium (TRTC). ROM Herbaria based curators carry out research, and teach in the Botany Department of the University of Toronto at both the undergraduate and graduate level, in addition to their collection and other responsibilities. These activities are funded not only by the university and by the ROM, but also by research grants from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and other agencies. Opportunities for post-graduate research thus may exist with both Botany curators (see below).
