Find Science Lesson Plans, Videos, and Animations on BioInteractive

HHMI’s BioInteractive is a good place for science teachers to search for science lesson plans, videos, animations, and slideshows to use with students.

The resources available through HHMI’s BioInteractive appears to be best suited for high school settings. The “click and learn” activities available on BioInteractive could be good to assign to students to view as homework prior to a lesson on the topic.

Do you live, or work, in a Super Zip?

Super Zips are “the country’s most prosperous, highly educated demographic clusters. On average, they have a median household income of $120,000, and 7 in 10 adults have college degrees.” This fascinating map from the Washington Post reveals how “it’s possible to live in a Super Zip and rarely encounter others without college degrees or professional jobs.” That’s problematic because “the trend is isolating well-to-do Americans from the problems of the poor and the working poor.”

The SAMR Ladder Through the Lens of 21st Century Skills

I have created an interactive graphic of the SAMR Ladder to illustrate the big picture. The image includes a sample of a vocabulary centered wiki project at each level of SAMR. The Ladder includes questions designed by Dr. Ruben R. Puentedura, Ph.D. for reflection about making the transition to the next level. The circle at each level targets research, writing and digital citizenship. There you will find a quick suggestion about ways to capture and embrace the natural progression of skills at each level.

Girls Lead in Science Exam, but Not in the United States

Researchers have been searching for ways to explain why there are so many more men than women in the top ranks of science. 
Now comes an intriguing clue, in the form of a test given in 65 developed countries by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. It finds that among a representative sample of 15-year-olds around the world, girls generally outperform boys in science — but not in the United States.

Women as Academic Authors, 1665-2010

Women’s presence in higher education has increased, but as authors of scholarly papers—keys to career success—their publishing patterns differ from those of men. Explore nearly 1,800 fields and subfields, across four centuries, to see which areas have the most female authors and which have the fewest, in this exclusive Chronicle report. See how overall percentages differ from the important first-author position and—in two major bioscience fields—from the prestigious last-author position.
Although the percentage of female authors is still less than women’s overall representation within the full-time faculty ranks, the researchers found that the proportion has increased as more women have entered the professoriate. They also show that women cluster into certain subfields and are somewhat underrepresented in the prestigious position of first author. In the biological ­sciences, women are even more underrepresented as last author. The last name on a scientific article is typically that of the senior scholar, who is not necessarily responsible for doing most of the research or writing but who directs the lab where the experiment was based.
