Assignment 4 Course: http://www.teachersdomain.org/
This website has a lot of different educational videos with lesson plans that correspond with the videos. I am actually using one of these videos in my ICE presentation on fossils.
This website has a rich archive of images. There are actual photos of frog dissections and cells under a microscope that can be used to enhance the lesson. It also has a huge array of worksheets that can be used for in class and homework activities.
Pedagogy Approach & Learning Outcomes
This website helps add an element of fun to the lesson. They have a lot of "how it works" videos, they have crossword puzzles and word searches that are good to have on hand if a student finishes a test early.
This website is definitely useful for making exam questions. It has an archive of all the past regents exams with answer keys.

This website is all about the Coelocanth, which until recently was thought to be extinct. This website provides lots of information about the coelocanth, and several neat videos showing them in their natural habitat. I would probably use this when discussing fossils and evolution and mention how based on fossils this animal was thought to be extinct, but thanks to advances in technology we are now aware that the animal is still alive.

This website lets the students custom pick which two flies will mate. They get to choose characteristics like body color, wing type and then breed the flies and see what the next generation will turn out like. This will definitely help reinforce genetics and punnet squares and since Drosophila are frequently mentioned on the Regents exam this will be beneficial.
