Teaching students the concepts behind biology and the life sciences is an enormous challenge. Unfortunately, the task is made even harder if the students are in any way developmentally challenged. However, author Peggy Palmeri offersStar Trek and Other Media Biology Workbook as a powerful and unique resource to help those students who may have a hard time learning through the use of traditional materials.
Using Star Trek television episodes, the art of M. C. Escher, cartoons by Gary Larson, and various public and cable television documentaries, this book supplies reproducible activities and study guide worksheets to help impart knowledge in a visual and easy to retain manner.
Used in conjunction with the textbook Biology: Principles and Explorations by Holt, Rhinehart, and Winston, this book offers a fun and enjoyable method to instruct biology students on biological topics of importance. For fans of the L.E.E.F.Nature Activity Book, each lesson is matched with a textbook chapter and provides a learning objective from the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and Florida State Standards.
For visual learners, homeschoolers, Trekkies, or even couch potatoes, this innovative and low-tech tool is an essential addition to any educators library.show more
