5 sources as excellent resources for teaching high school biology in NY

Authorized users only:


DNA from the Beginning

Added 12/02/2010
Students can learn about DNA in a colorful and memorable way. I would use this during a genetics unit as a way to show a more kinetic and visual approach to DNA. A benefit of using activities from Cold Spring Harbor is the possibility of students actually visiting the center in the future and being able to make real-life connections.

Biology Textbook (On-Line)

Added 12/02/2010
This is a fantastic way for students to learn from their textbook in a more technological fashion (which ties into the new curriculum). This would be great for students with iPads or laptops as well.

Teaching Evolution: Online Course for Teachers

Added 12/02/2010
I love the availibility of new learning materials for the teacher. This would be a great source for me to keep myself updated during a genetics and/or ecology unit. Additionally, it's would be a great source for students who want to learn more.

Mitosis Game

Added 12/02/2010
This can be used as both assessment or pre-assessment for students. It's a great review for them to make sure they know their information before a test. Additionally, the "fun" aspect of it can help students compete and learn in different ways than reading from a textbook.

Neuroscience for Kids

Added 12/02/2010
This is a great resource for both me and the students during a nervous system unit. Neuroscience is my personal favorite area of biology, so I love the project ideas available here. The real-life connections that students can make on this site would also be helpful. I would probably assign looking at this site as homework.
