Bird Aggression, Book A, Explorations in Biology.
Mid-Continent Regional Educational Lab., Inc., Kansas City, MO.
This booklet is part of a series which test some skills biologists use in their investigations. A series of diagrams of a bird interacting with members of its own and other species and two reports on bird behavior are used as a basis for identifying the "unusual event" shown in the illustrations. Students indicate the order in which they would conduct a series of steps if they were biologists investigating the event. A scrambled programed text format is used to direct students to other questions about each step in the investigation. Some extracts from the literature are included in the sequence and these form the basis of other questions. Students are allowed 55 minutes to complete this booklet. Booklet B (SE 011 337) contains a series of questions related to possible experiments testing one of the possibilities offered in Booklet A. (AL)
