Gold Medal!: An Event-Based Science Module. Teacher's Guide. Physiology Module.
Wright, Russell G.
This book is designed for middle school life science or physical science teachers to help their students learn scientific literacy through event-based science. Unlike traditional curricula, the event- based earth science module is a student-centered, interdisciplinary, inquiry-oriented program that emphasizes cooperative learning, teamwork, independent research, hands-on investigations, and exploration of authentic tasks. Students use this book to work as a team of design specialists for an advertising agency whose clients are official sponsors of the Olympics. Their task is to design educational/advertising campaigns. The module in this book can be used to build a whole curriculum or fit into current lesson plans to add interest. (KHR)
