Science, Medicine, and Animals: Teacher's Guide
Moran, Lisa C.
National Academies Press
"Science, Medicine, and Animals" explains the role that animals play in biomedical research and the ways in which scientists, governments, and citizens have tried to balance the experimental use of animals with a concern for all living creatures. An accompanying "Teacher's Guide" is available to help teachers of middle and high school students use "Science, Medicine, and Animals" in the classroom. As students examine the issues in "Science, Medicine, and Animals," they will gain a greater understanding of the goals of biomedical research and the real-world practice of the scientific method in general. "Science, Medicine, and Animals" and the "Teacher's Guide" were written by the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research and published by the National Research Council of the National Academies. The report was reviewed by a committee made up of experts and scholars with diverse perspectives, including members of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institutes of Health, the Humane Society of the United States, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The "Teacher's Guide" was reviewed by members of the National Academies Teacher Associates Network. "Science, Medicine, and Animals" is recommended by the National Science Teacher's Association. Student worksheets are included. [Cover Title: "Science, Medicine, and Animals: A Circle of Discovery. Teacher's Guide." Additional support for this Teacher's Guide was provided by the President's Circle Communications Initiative of the National Academies.]
