Problem-Based Learning in the Lifescience offers a great new way to ignite your creativity.
Authors Tom J. McConnell, Joyce Parker, and Janet Eberhardt show you how to engage students with scenarios that represent real-world science in all its messy, thought-provoking glory. The scenarios prompt learners to immerse themselves in analyzing problems, asking questions, posing hypotheses, finding needed information, and then constructing a proposed solution.

In addition to complete lesson plans supporting the Next Generation Science Standards, the book offers extensive examples, instructions, and tips. The lessons cover four categories: life cycles, ecology, genetics, and cellular metabolism.

But Problem-Based Learning in the Life Science doesn't just explain why, how, and when to implement problem-based learning (PBL). It also provides you with what many think is the trickiest part of the approach: rich, authentic problems. The authors facilitated the National Science Foundation-funded PBL Project forTeachers and used the problems in their own science teaching, so you can be confident that the problems and the approach are teacher


Target Audience:

This book is specifically written for Life Sciences Teachers.
