      Strategies: Advanced Work

      The following activities are suggestions for working with students who are ready for advanced work. We hope that the activities spark ideas and conversations among teachers about useful classroom strategies that can supplement existing curriculum.

      Water Everywhere

      Students are expected to describe means of comparing the benefits with the risks of technology and how science can inform public policy (Science and Technology, Benchmark B). This includes demonstrating an understanding of how decisions about the implementation of technology involve assessing benefits and risks on the environment and on humans.

      Click here* for "Water, Water Everywhere?", a lesson plan in which students work in teams to research data related to local water usage and potential sources of contamination, Students then make recommendations to the local government regarding disposal or industrial waste, and announcements to the general public regarding the use of bottled water, filters and lawncare. This activity includes student understanding of how changes in technology can cause significant changes, either positive or negative, in environmental quality (Life Sciences, Benchmark G).
