Synergistic Activities
Curriculum Development: Designed and developed research-based curriculum materials for use
in middle and high school including interactive, internet-based biology modules in partnership
with Agile Mind, a grade 8 curriculum for BSCS Science: An Inquiry Approach, the revision of
BSCS Biology: A Human Approach both in print and online, and a nanoscience module for BSCS
Science: An Inquiry Approach
. Worked with the Singapore Ministry of Education to develop a
new national curriculum for elementary students. Additionally, developed case studies to be used
in introductory biology at Emory University and a bioethics course for the Morehouse College
Summer Academy.
Professional Development: Designed and led a variety of professional development workshops
for K-12 educators. These include work with Cincinnati Public Schools to learn about inquiry
over the course of a school year, Orange County, FL and districts in Washington state for BSCS
curriculum implementation, and consultants for Kendall/Hunt Publishing to learn more about
BSCS materials. In addition, developed and led workshops for the Singapore Ministry of
Education as during the development of a new national elementary curriculum. These workshops
included instruction on inquiry, the BSCS 5E Instructional Model, curriculum development, the
AIM process, biology content, and formative assessment.
Educational Technology: Developed interactive, internet-based biology modules in conjunction
with Agile Mind. As part of this work, designed appropriate means of conveying science content
online, developed interactives and visualizations for biology content, and worked closely with
the production group to ensure accurate, pedagogically appropriate materials. Additionally,
working to develop an online environment and user group for one BSCS program.

Information about the GP Care Trans-rectal Ultrasound and Biopsy Why might I need to have a trans-rectal ultrasound and prostate biopsy? If the prostate gland is enlarged it can make it difficult to pass urine. You may need a trans-rectal ultrasound to let your consultant see any enlargement and it may provide further information as to the cause. The main types of prostate problem are
