Becklin, Katie M. – American Biology Teacher, 2008
Plants and insects share a long evolutionary history characterized by relationships that affect individual, population, and community dynamics. Plant-herbivore interactions are a prominent feature of this evolutionary history; it is by plant-herbivore interactions that energy is transferred from primary producers to the rest of the food web. Not…

Flammer, Larry – American Biology Teacher, 2006
Surveys reveal that many in our society have an inadequate and inaccurate understanding of evolution (Alters & Alters, 2001). Much of this can be traced directly to popular misconceptions about the nature of science. This, in turn, can be linked to misrepresentation by those opposed to evolution, although inadequate or ineffective treatment by ill…

Feldstein, Sharon M.; Benner Michael S. – American Biology Teacher, 2004
Outcomes of Rider University's model of a secondary-postsecondary partnership are documented. This was developed in response to school districts' need to provide their students with hands-on experiences in the theory and practice of modern biology. It was observed that partnership models not only helped students to increase their knowledge, but…

Sadler, Troy; Zeidler, Dana L. – American Biology Teacher, 2004
According to research, students often perceive the ethical implications of issues such as genetic engineering, but sometimes they are not equipped to handle multiple perspectives and articulate well-reasoned positions. A modified jigsaw activity, appropriate for secondary and introductory college biology classes, that introduces students to human…

Tessier, Jack T. – American Biology Teacher, 2004
Problem-based learning is becoming a popular and effective approach in Science, as it touted as an effective way to promote active learning and encourage students to develop life long learning skills. The problem-based learning could easily be adapted to the high school level and used as long-term project for a biology laboratory.

Yusten, Jason; Gerber, D. Timothy; Beck, Judy – American Biology Teacher, 2003
Because soils provide water, minerals, and a medium to anchor the roots of plants, measuring the basic physical/chemical components of soils is important to maintaining healthy garden plants and agricultural crops. Historically, soil analysis has been practiced to determine fertilizer and lime applications, soil fertility, and soil improvement…
