The Project

Project Title Locke's Bugs
Insects To Study Isopods, mealworms, etc
Project Description I plan to use Bugscope as part of an introduction to microscopes. I plan to tie it into a lesson on scientific method. At Locke High School there are about 60% Latino and 40% African-American. This breakdown also occurs in each class. Gender wise it is about 50%/50%. I make sure to be as equitable as possible by monitoring who I call on and how my groups are arranged. I am the science department chair and I firmly believe in sharing all resources and ideas. I plan to share this experience with my collegues and encourage them to apply as well.
