Scope It Out: Standards-Based Microscope Lessons for the Middle School.
Bowman, Diana, Ed.; And Others
During the 1994-95 school year, the Eisenhower Regional Consortium for Mathematics and Science Education at Appalachia Educational Laboratory (AEL) conducted the Scope It Out project to provide training and technical assistance to educators in using the microscope as a learning tool in a standards-based curriculum. This publication is a compilation of selected lessons, developed by teachers involved with the project, that demonstrate using microscopes in the classroom for inquiry and experimentation. Topics include the microscope as a teaching and learning tool, assessing students using the microscope, organization and selection of classroom lessons, laboratory safety, and lessons submitted by teachers. Appendices contain sample class safety rules guidelines and references list for laboratory safety from the Tennessee Science Curriculum Framework. (JRH)
