NSTA free online seminar about engaging students through the use of current issues.
"Can issue-based activities make science come alive? Can the process of science work in concert with the context of science through issues? In the first part of the webinar, you will explore how to use ActionBioscience.org to incorporate issues into your teaching and extend its resources to activities that illustrate 'thinking like a scientist.' In part two, our discussion will examine how to use historical cases to illustrate their application to lessons on current issues. In the final hands-on component, participants will learn how to teach students to evaluate web resources using the 5Ws strategy and discuss ways to use this and other strategies for thinking critically about online resources. Join Oksana Hlodan, Editor-in-chief of ActionBioscience.org, a free access, bilingual (English/Spanish) education resource of the American Institute of Biological Sciences, who along with a guest classroom teacher, will guide this reflection on teaching and learning with issues and facilitate the interactive components. Worksheets and resource lists will be provided. This webinar is designed for high school and undergraduate educators of introductory science courses."
