Integrative Mini-cases in the Ecology of Infectious Disease NIH

Project Goals

  1. Develop and test mini-cases in the ecology of ecology of infectious disease for middle and high school students.
  2. Coordinate and host local teacher professional development workshops and provide post-workshop support for teachers who will implement mini-cases.
  3. Disseminate mini-cases and teacher materials nationally.

Project Description
We are working with a group of teachers in the development of mini-cases in the ecology of infectious disease that will reinforce core concepts and skills in biology. The mini-cases will initially be delivered via an Outreach model, and then implemented more independently by teachers. We will be stimulating the interest of all students in careers in science as well.
