View Resource An Exploration into Niche Competition and Population Ecology: A Case-Based Biology Lesson Plan

In this case-based learning activity, students will: investigate whether there are any possible long-term solutions to restoring woodpecker numbers and demonstrate why these solutions may be successful; devise a plan to collect data on nest cavities, woodpeckers, and starling density along the Arkansas River; and devise a plan to determine starling numbers at a local feedlot.

View Resource Interactions Between White Oak and its Environment: A Case-Based Lesson Plan

After completing this case-based activity, students will be able to: (1) demonstrate that both environmental conditions and pathogens affect plant growth or by stating plausible explanations for variations in tree growth over time as shown in annual rings; (2) consistently identify a small group of important oak species and state what features they are using for identification; and (3)...

View Resource Tomatoes and the Study of Ecosystems: A Case-Based Biology Lesson Plan

In this case-based biology lesson plan, students investigate the components of ecosystems by exploring why two next-door neighbors experience radically different results in their attempts to grow tomatoes, despite living next to each other and purchasing tomato plants from the same store.

View Resource A Case on Invasive Species and Control: A Case-Based Biology Lesson Plan

In this case-based learning activity, students will: develop an understanding of plant/animal interactions, communities, populations, and the impact of exotic, invasive species; engage in an ecological inquiry; be engaged in the use of science knowledge to make informed environmental policy decisions.

View Resource Rivers, Land Use and Wetlands: A Case-Based Biology Lesson Plan

In this case, students will evaluate the importance of the ecological communities in their area, specifically a freshwater river ecosystem. Students will also be exposed to possible problems or controversies arising from development, including its effect on the environment. Finally, students will relate these issues to their career interests and improve critical thinking and collaboration...
