EDSP 603 Biodiversity of Northwest Ohio

Biodiversity of Northwest Ohio is a course that will help teachers take their classes into the schoolyard or natural area and give them the basic tools they need to identify common plants, insects, birds and miscellaneous invertebrates in this area. Collection and preservation techniques, as well as ethics of collecting and research will be included. Opportunities for educators to incorporate content into hands-on activities and methodologies to enhance conceptual understanding and assimilation are part of the course work. State and national standards at the pre-kindergarten to grade 12 (P-12) levels across curricular areas will be addressed.
