Developing a Biology Extension within Physics and Everyday Thinking
  Location: SS 104
  Date: Monday, Aug.1
  Time: 9:40 AM -9:50 AM
  Author: Seth Manthey, Florida International University
  Co-Author(s): Natan Samuels , Eric Brewe
  Abstract: We present the results of a cogenerative teaching experience in an elementary science content and methods course. This course implemented the Physics and Everyday Thinking (PET) curriculum, which we adapted to meet student and programmatic needs. In this talk we will be discussing a specific adaptation we made to the PET curriculum. This change was achieved by uncovering the students' needs using the Cogenerative Mediation Process for Learning Environments (CMPLE) and then creating an extension from the infrared portion of the PET curriculum. This extension connected PET and physics in general to biological concepts. This extension was a result of cogenerative discussion regarding the needs of the students.
