"Gender, Race, and the Complexities of Science and Technology: A Problem-Based Learning Experiment,
"What can we learn about science and technology–and what can we do with that knowledge? Who are "we" in these questions?–whose knowledge and expertise gets made into public policy, new medicines, topics of cultural and political discourse, science education, and so on? How can expertise and lay knowledge about science and technology be reconciled in a democratic society? How can we make sense of the interactions of living and non-living, humans and non-humans, individual and collectivities i

Beyond Response: Transcending Peer Feedback Through Critical Collaborative Assessment
Composition has long recognized a rift between good classroom pedagogy for the instruction of writing and the institutional necessity of summatively assessing writing for a grade. While the former is student-centered, process-oriented, often collaborative, and increasingly constructionist in its approach, the latter is typically authoritarian and positivistic. Several pedagogies, such as contract grading and portfolio assessment, have emerged to address the rift between the two practices. By del
Judging the Hate Crime Victim: Law School Student Perceptions and the Effects of Individual and law
The present study examines the effects of individual and law school factors on the perceptions of African-American, gay, and lesbian hate crime victims for 283 law school students from two schools in western Pennsylvania.

The extreme challenges of life in the polar regions require the animals who make their habitat there to make many adaptations. This unit explores the polar climate and how animals like reindeer, polar bears, penguins, sea life and even humans manage to survive there. It looks at the adaptations to physiological proceses, the environmental effects on diet, activity and fecundity, and contrasts the strategies of aquatic and land-based animals in surviving in this extreme habitat. This unit builds
The infusion of evangelical Christianity in sports comes at a scarcely examined cost to the religiously diverse communities that support major league franchises, particularly Jewish (and other religious minority) populations. Tom Krattenmaker, the author of the new book 'Onward Christian Athletes,' will explore the ways that Jewish concerns and rights have been too often ignored--indeed, violated--by evangelical activity in pro sports, and will begin a long-overdue discussion of measures to ensu
