ENTOMOL 671-USING INSECTS IN THE CLASSROOM.
INSTRUCTOR: DR. JOHN STOFFOLANO
*** Corrected announcement ****
Insects, without a doubt, are ideal organisms to teach children
science process skills. Their universal presence, their wonderful
colors and unusual body shapes, plus their ability to fly have always
captivated the minds of young children and naturally stimulates them
to ask meaningful questions. Thus, the first part of any scientific
investigation has begun (i.e., making an observation and asking a
question). This course will provide you with the essential background
information about insects and their arthropod relatives to help you
and your students find answers to questions. You will finish the
course feeling confident in raising insects in your classroom,
studying them in the outdoors, and directing students to the
appropriate content resources. Insects will become an integral part of
both your life and your students. Why not learn technology along with
your academic course content? This course will give you this
opportunity and will demonstrate how you can most effectively use
these in your own classroom. You will use an online discussion session
to interact with your fellow students, post your autobiographical
information for others to see, post your ideas about 2 interesting
articles, watch videos, share ideas and information about how you are
using insects in your classroom, and learn about various
computer-based programs. A project is required and focuses on your
preparing a teaching unit that incorporates the science standards for
your school using insects.

online this fall.
