Blight! An Event-Based Science Module. Student Edition. Plants and Plant Diseases Module.
Wright, Russell G.
This book is designed for middle school students to 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 in cooperative groups to develop a television show about a disease affecting crops in a U.S. state. (KHR)
