Universcience-VOD- La plasticité du cerveau part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Coached Problem Solving:Examples
In this lab exercise, students of intermediate-level French will watch a short video on brain plasticity from the universcience VOD collection online.
RNA processing and northern blot technique problem part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Coached Problem Solving:Examples
Students are given a figure from a journal article of a northern blot, and are asked to interpret the results, demonstrating an understanding of both the northern blot technique and RNA processing in eukaryotic cells.
Gleevec and the cell cycle problem part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Coached Problem Solving:Examples
Students are given a problem about a relatively new treatment for cancer, Gleevec, and asked to apply and synthesize what they have learned about cell signaling and the eukaryotic cell cycle to explain why this targeted treatment works to prevent cell division with fewer side effects than traditional chemotherapeutic agents.
Gene expression during development: Experimental design problem part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Coached Problem Solving:Examples
This problem challenges students to design experiments using techniques measuring gene expression (reverse transcriptase PCR, microarrays, in situ hybridization).
Phylogenetics problems part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Coached Problem Solving:Examples
Students receive information about cladistics and apply this phylogenetic approach to two problems, collecting data, determining whether traits are ancestral or derived, and using this information to select the most parsimonious tree.
Malnutrition, DNA replication, development, and schizophrenia homework problem part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Coached Problem Solving:Examples
At the beginning of a DNA, DNA replication, and mitosis unit, students are given a short science news article summarizing a recent research paper. This assignment links the article to figures and key techniques from a related journal article, requiring students to apply and transfer the knowledge they gained in the unit.

Extinction: Is it inevitable? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Using Issues to Teach Science:Examples
Students read an article titled "The Sixth Extinction" by Niles Eldredge on past mass extinctions and the current rate of loss of species. The instructor can choose from a suite of activities which include having students respond to discussion and extension questions about the article, write an essay on the article defending Eldredge's view, create an extinction chart, and debate the actions of stakeholders faced with an endangered species vs. human water needs scenario. Students will need to research additional references to complete the activities and be prepared to defend their positions.
