STRAND: Research to Practice

Show Details

A Research Experience for Teachers Program at the University of Puerto Rico (BIORETS: BioInteractions) aims to engage eight secondary school teachers in the development of standards-centered curricular materials after they participate in a summer research immersion experience. The focus of the research experiences is on the overarching theme of biological and biomolecular interactions. Teacher participants engage in a broad range of research activities: from molecular biology to ecology. Curricular materials are designed based on their research experience to promote students’ scientific literacy and foster positive attitudes towards STEM. In this session, we will share experiences from the summer research immersion experience as well as examples of the curricular materials that have been developed and tips for their implementation.

Attendees will take away strategies to transfer scientific research experiences into their classroom to promote students’ scientific literacy and positive attitudes towards STEM.

Strategies in teaching Cellular Respiration

Saturday, March 25 • 8:00 AM - 8:30 AM

Georgia World Congress Center - C213

STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

Engage students in a hands-on cellular respiration learning activity using handouts and manipulatives.

1. Learn the stages of cellular respiration; 2. Discover how to follow glucose through the oxidation steps and track the carbons that are converted to CO2; and 3. Calculate the energy production (ATP) through substrate-level phosphorylation and oxidative phosphorylation.
