FREE! Lab-Aids Science and Global Issues: HS Biology, Redesigned for NGSS In-Person
What do you want your biology classes to look like? Do you envision students working together, analyzing real data, getting hands-on with a variety of labs an investigations, and making connections to real world phenomena and issues? Join Lab-Aids and the East Bay Education Collaborative for an afternoon of resources from Science and Global Issues: Biology. Bring lessons and ideas back to your classroom!
Different from a traditional textbook, Science and Global Issues: Biology was developed through field testing and years of educational research by SEPUP at the Lawrence Hall of Science. Rather than present the content mainly through reading or direct instruction, the program invites students to explore real-world issues and to take an active role in analyzing and designing possible solutions.
Science and Global Issues: Biology has been completely redesigned for the NGSS - not just a few added bits here and there, completely taken apart, field-tested, and designed again - redesigned. SGI: Biology wraps the entire program around the issue of sustainability, and each unit around a specific unit Issue to anchor the content. In this session, we will work through several activities from the ecology unit. We will focus on sustainable fisheries and human decisions around resource using a model and on analyzing data of species distribution across the United States compared against a variety of ecosystem factors. Attendees will get samples lessons to bring back to their classrooms, access to a digital trial of the curriculum, a classroom poster featuring the CCCs, a chance to win a variety of biology kits as door prizes, and dinner!
