Exploring the Evolution of Human Skin Color through the Science Practices with HHMI BioInteractive Resources
This workshop will be offered on Thursday, February 29, 7:00–8:30PM EASTERN. Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
Do your students wonder about skin color? Are you looking for resources that tie a relevant phenomenon to NGSS science practices in an engaging way? During this workshop, participants will experience how the scientific practices of analyzing data and constructing models can be threaded together to construct a scientific explanation centered on the evolution of human skin color. Using HHMI BioInteractive’s resources about human skin color and best practices in the classroom, we will explore a scaffolded series of activities to help students build skills related to these practices.
This workshop is for educators who teach any level of high school biology, including introductory and advanced courses (AP, IB, etc.) and undergraduate educators who teach at 2- or 4-year institutions.
- The workshop will be hosted via Zoom meeting.
- Our workshops actively engage participants and often feature small group work in breakout rooms to build community, foster discussion, and model classroom practice.
- Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation and access to the free BioInteractive resources modeled in the workshop.
Live transcription will be available in the main Zoom meeting room. If you require live transcription in the breakout rooms, or any other accommodations in order to fully participate in the workshop, please indicate this on the registration form.
