Teaching High School Biology helps teachers identify the benefits of an inquiry-based approach to science education, explore a range of methodologies for teaching challenging topics, and examine the process of lesson design incorporating the use of multimedia. Participants use multimedia to explore novel learning environments and strategies that foster student interest, involve them in the research process, advance their critical thinking skills, and develop their conceptual understanding.

Teachers’ Domain Professional Development courses integrate inquiry learning with video clips and interactive experiences from award-winning PBS science programs and Web sites, including educator favorites NOVA, ZOOM, and A Science Odyssey. This course introduces a media-rich learning environment teachers can use with their students, and provides models, including videos of exemplary practice, to illustrate ways to teach beyond the textbook.

A course participant exclaims, “The different sections are clearly laid out and help give teachers specific information about what is essential in an inquiry-based classroom and examples of how to incorporate these elements into their own classroom. After taking this course I will be sure to pay closer attention to the planning process and I will spend more time trying to identify the preconceptions students might have, in hopes of increasing their understanding.” 

Teaching High School Biology joins Teaching Elementary Life Science, Teaching Elementary Physical Science, and Teaching Middle School Life Science in the Teachers’ Domain Professional Development portfolio. Resources within the courses correspond to state standards, the National Science Education Standards, and the MCREL Compendium of Standards.  These research-based courses are available by license to educational service agencies, districts, schools and universities for delivery to the K – 12 teachers they serve. 

More information about the courses is available at www.teachersdomain.org/courses.

Teachers’ Domain Professional Development draws on the resources of Teachers’ Domain www.teachersdomain.org, an online multimedia library of K-12 science resources correlated to national and state standards. Funded by the National Science Digital Library as part of the National Science Foundation, Teachers’ Domain includes lesson plans, background essays, and customization features for introducing multimedia resources into the classroom.
