In this non-clinical intermediate course, students examine the major concepts around interdependencies between organisms within ecosystems and explore the best methodologies to teach these concepts. The major concepts include: natural factors that affect population size; human influence on populations; factors that influence biodiversity; carrying capacity; and the role of group behavior on ecosystems. The student develops multiple engaging activities and lesson plans to teach middle or high school children details within the major concepts. Students create formative investigations and assessments related to the major concepts as well as satisfy summative assessment requirements. Students plan an integrated/thematic unit with lessons that align with Next Generation Science Standards.
