Bitten By The Biology Bug. Monograph VI. Essays from "The American Biology Teacher."
Flannery, Maura C.
A collection of 18 essays originally published in "The American Biology Teacher" in a column headed "Biology Today" are presented. The essays have been reprinted in chronological order and begin with an essay published in March 1982. A variety of types of writings were selected: some focus on teaching biology, others on the science itself. Several deal with books and articles that have excited and interested the columnist over the years. The following essays are included: (1) "Books and Biology"; (2) "Turning Teaching Around"; (3) "Naturalists"; (4) "The Importance of Trivia"; (5) "Broadening Our Horizons"; (6) "Branching Out"; (7) "Things I'd Never Thought About"; (8) "Bitten by the Insect Bug"; (9) "Beginning Again"; (10) "Who Could Have Guessed It?" (11) "The Other Side of the Coin"; (12) "In the Flower Garden"; (13) "Of Chaperones and Dancing Molecules: The Power of Metaphors"; (14) "Communicating Biology"; (15) "Eye on Biology"; (16) "Loving Biology--It's About Time"; (17) "Human Biology"; and (18) "Telling About the Lure of Science." Most chapters include references. (KR)
