Bscs Science Tracks: Connecting Science And Literacy: Designing Environmental Solutions Teacher Edition
Author(s): Biological Sciences Curriculum Studies-10789
SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY-In this module, students examine possible solutions to environmental problems, such as water pollution from oil spills, solid waste, and destruction of wildlife habitat. Students evaluate proposed solutions to such problems by using the IDEA Method--identifying the problem, describing possible solutions, evaluating the risks and benefits of each possible solution, and arriving at a solution. In this process, students become acquainted with the constraints and trade-offs involved in proposing solutions to environmental problems. They apply the processes of technological problem-solving as they investigate a local environmental problem and propose possible solutions.
BSCS Science TRACKS includes a Teacher's Edition, complete with facsimile pages of the student guide, placed exactly where you need them with the Teaching Strategies. In addition, the Teacher's Edition incorporates the following features, designed to help you organize and manage an activity-based science program within your busy teaching day. The Program Overview explains:
- the general philosophy, goals, and features of the program;
- the relationship of the program to the National Science Education Standards, including the content, teaching, and assessment standards, and Benchmarks for Science Literacy;
