Title: Stem Cells Across the Curriculum
Url: http://www.stemcellcurriculum.org
Publisher: Stem Cell Across The Curriculum
Description: Stem Cells Across the Curriculum (SCAC) offers college-level lesson plans and activities designed to help students explore the intersections of science and society and explore ethical debates within the scientific community. These lessons have been crafted by a team of scholars with support from the New York State Stem Cell Science program,NYSTEM. As the team notes, "The topic of stem cells provides an engaging framework for integrating biological concepts and principles with a diverse range of perspectives spanning social justice, religious studies, gender studies, disability studies, and economics." SCAC includes four modules to engage students with these issues: a module about stem cell ownership and property, highlighting the Henrietta Lacks case; a module about the use of human eggs in stem cell research and the question of financial compensation; a module about stem cell research and disability rights; and a module about religious and cultural beliefs and discussions of ethics and stem cell research. All of these modules include complete lesson plans as well as links to readings, videos, and other accompanying resources.
