Teachers' Domain, Regulation and Behavior, published August 24, 2010, retrieved on ,
Regulation and Behavior is a graduate-level professional development course designed to enhance your understanding and teaching of life science. You will explore how organisms get what they need in order to survive and thrive. You will investigate regulation and behavior using hands-on activities and online resources including video segments, interactive activities, readings, and other multimedia materials. These resources are drawn from Teachers' Domain, WGBH's digital library service.
Regulation and Behavior
This course helps you understand and teach about how organisms get what they need in order to survive and thrive.
Session 1: Regulation
Learners explore how various types of organisms provide the conditions their cells require to survive and function properly. Teaching and learning strategies focus on the use of prediction as a learning tool and on ways to integrate a range of resources into classroom activities.
Session 2: Behavior
Learners look closely at behavior and find that an animal's ability to respond to other organisms and to changing environmental conditions and internal states can be just as important to its survival as any physical trait. Teaching and learning strategies focus on environments for learning.
All sessions and their content correspond to the National Science Education Standards.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
