Not So Neutral Views
Students are introduced to acids and bases, and the environmental problem of acid rain. They explore ways to use indicators to distinguish between acids and bases. Students also conduct a simple experiment to model and discuss the harmful effects of acid rain on our living and non-living environment, as well as how engineers address acid rain. In an associated literacy activity, students learn how persuasive techniques are used to develop an argument, and create an environmental case study.

Supporting Teachers Intervention in Collaborative Knowledge Building
In the context of distributed collaborative learning, the teacher's role is different from traditional teacher-centered environments, they are coordinators/facilitators, guides, and co-learners. They monitor the collaboration activities within a group, detect problems and intervene in the collaboration to give advice and learn alongside students at the same time. We have designed an Assistant to support teachers intervention in collaborative knowledge building. The Assistant monitors the collabo

Conservation Ecology: Lessons from the physics education reform effort
Starting in 1992, introductory physics students at Indiana University were pre- and post-tested on their knowledge of general physics. Some students received standard classes of lectures and tests, while others were taught using interactive engagement (IE) techniques. The goal of the study was this: can IE methods increase the effectiveness of introductory mechanics courses? Though the study focused on physics and mechanics specifically, the techniques used can be applied in teaching other scien
