NPR Science: February 14

Week of February 14, 2011

Click on the logo above to go the the NPR Science site, or use the links below to navigate to one of the stories that I thought may interest you.

Last week, I showed my students my most recent NPR post and allowed them to pick the story title that most interested them to watch and talk about at the beginning of class.  They picked the video on the Meat-Eating Furniture and were quite intrigued.  Then, I showed them James Randi’s video on Homeopathy.  None of them had heard of homeopathic treatments but they appreciated being educated regarding the difference between these treatments and drugs that have been through FDA approval.

Happy listening!

I am a high school biology teacher at Blue Valley North High School where I have taught freshman Biology and Honors Biology, Field Biology, Zoology, and AP Biology for the past 15 years. I am sponsor of the Environmental Club and our molecular modeling S.M.A.R.T. Team program. I am also the current treasurer of the Kansas Herpetological Society. Although I like most things biological, I have specific interests in the natural history of KS endemics (the outdoors) and things molecular. I am a pretty avid reader, I enjoy maintaining my website, and taking photographs. I plan on having students blogging and creating podcasts by the end of the year.
