      • BIOC 633 Secondary Biology Lab Curricula. What are the characteristics that most great instructional activities share? How can you modify an exsisting activity to increase study involvement, interest, and understanding? How can you make use of current events to communicate with students about the fun and complexity of doing science? And how do national and state science standards drive your curricular choices? In this totally online course, we will explore these ideas by using and discussing exemplary curricula taken from a variety of sources. The emphasis will be for teachers to adapt classroom activities to reflect the results of research on teaching and learning in science and to promote greater student understanding in biology.
