User Reviews

Using inquiry to investigate science issues
  Arlene Jurewicz Leighton on May 31, 2011
  “An issue is a topic with no clearly-defined single outcome or answer, something about which reasonable people might be expected to disagree.” “Investigations should derive from questions and issues that have meaning for students. This excellent web seminar developed by the National Science Digital Library and American Institute of Biological Sciences, . Oksana Hlodan took participants through ways to incoroporate current issues in teaching by highlighting materials from Actionbioscience.org,. Discussed were ways to incorporate inquiry and investigation issues, how misconceptions about science issues can come into play and ways to ensure that students develop media literacy skills when searching for information.
