Using technology to Blend Teaching and Basic Research

The Science Teacher—November 2006

The CHANCE (Connecting Humans and Nature in the Costa Rican Environment) program is a coordinated effort between The Pennsylvania State University (PSU) and the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) that trains 9th- through 12th-grade teachers in environmental science and ecology. The program provides teaching strategies that will develop students’ knowledge of and concern for the environment and its biodiversity (McLaughlin 2006). Because most states must meet similar standards, the CHANCE program provides a viable framework for renewing high school biology education nationwide.
