Your Body: A Bacteria Incubator!
Developed for the second grade. Students learn about bacteria and safe food handling. Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary level. Unless otherwise noted, the lesson plans have been tried at least once by students from our partner schools. This wiki has been established to share ideas about teaching biolo
Record test results - Maintain Laboratory Records
An introduction to microbiological laboratory procedures for lab technicians in scientific and medical testing laboratories. Covers procedures for recording results.
Respond to non-conformance of food safety controls
A Food Safety Program enables food establishments to ensure food production methods are safe, hygienic and that they comply with food regulations and legislation. The Food Safety Program systematically identifies the food safety hazards that may be reasonably expected to occur in your workplace. It identifies where and how each hazard can be controlled, describes how these controls are to be monitored, the corrective action required if control conditions are not met, and
Space School: Mars
This seven minute video offers insights and statistics about Mars. Well done with excellent images. The red planet Mars is very much like Earth because it also has rolling plains, mountain ranges, and giant canyons. Mars, one of the rocky inner planets is roughly half the size of Earth. Its core is most likely composed of iron, nickel, and sulfur. A day in Mars is 24 hours and 39 minutes long. Mars' orbit around the sun takes almost two Earth years. A Martian year lasts 687 days. This is some of

Implementation guidelines: ACE School Management and Leadership (PDF)
This manual provides an overview of the design and expected delivery of the new programme. The key focus of the ACE (School Management and Leadership) programme is to facilitate real transformation in schools that is grounded in recognition of the challenges of particular contexts and the values underpinning the South African Constitution. Principals and would-be principals must understand that it is not acceptable simply to pay lip service to the ideas presented in the programme, to develop pol

De student oefent luister- en spreekvaardigheid met als doel een kleine conversatie te voeren over transportmiddelen.
"Economic Growth, Fall 2009"
" This half semester class presents an introduction to macroeconomic modeling, focusing on the theory of economic growth and some of its applications. It will introduce a number of models of non-stochastic and stochastic macroeconomic equilibrium. It will use these models to shed light both on the process of economic growth at the world level and on sources of income and growth differences across countries."

Erythemal Index for August 2000 through July 2001: North and South America
The Erythemal Index is a measure of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at ground level on the Earth. UV exists to the left of the visible spectrum and is divided into three components (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C). UV-B (290-320 wavelengths) is the most dangerous form of UV radiation that can reach ground level. Atmospheric ozone shields life at the surface from most of the harmful components of solar radiation. Chemical processes in the atmosphere can effect the level of protection provided by the ozone in the
"Bioethics, Spring 2009"
" This course does not seek to provide answers to ethical questions. Instead, the course hopes to teach students two things. First, how do you recognize ethical or moral problems in science and medicine? When something does not feel right (whether cloning, or failing to clone) — what exactly is the nature of the discomfort? What kind of tensions and conflicts exist within biomedicine? Second, how can you think productively about ethical and moral problems? What processes create them? Why do pe

2.1 Institutional science promotion events
This unit will look at how public engagement in science and technology might be achieved through science promotion. Science promotion and public involvement in policy making can require both formal and informal objectives: some are explicit and some are implicit, some are articulated at the planning stage and some are unexpected. These objectives can entail participation, engagement, knowledge exchange and learning – all of which require a degree of motivation by all parties.
7.4 Summary of Section 7
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
What they said - the view from India
Planning for succession in India has traditionally been a matter for the country's family-run businesses. The recent leadership transition at Infosys Technologies could set new standards for professional management in the country’s burgeoning publically-held companies.
