Biotechnology High School Curriculum Exchange
Back to Curriculum Table of Contents
Last updated: May 2, 2006


We receive numerous requests from high school Biotechnology teachers for ideas on how to teach Biotechnology. As a high school Biology teacher we know you are concerned with developing materials related to Biotechnology and the impact of Biology on our lives. We would like to use this page in the Bio-Link Clearinghouse as a platform for sharing materials among high school biology teachers. We intend this to be a survey of the large variety of curriculum material that is currently used in different programs at the high school level.

Check out the materials that we've collected below. We would like to include the material you use in your Biotechnology courses. Material can include a copy of the syllabus, a course outline or a list of topics or resources used in teaching. Teachers who are developing a Biotech curriculum or trying to decide which topics to include in a Biotech course have indicated this would be useful to them. We here at Bio-Link will get an indication of the directions that Biotechnology Education is going at the high school level. Your response will be a valuable resource.

The materials that you submit will be put in an electronic format and posted on the "Curriculum Materials" page of the Bio-Link Clearinghouse. The documents will be attributed to you with your name and school name. You maintain control over your material and should you decide that you no longer wish to participate you may withdraw the material from the site. Access to the Bio-Link Clearinghouse is only available to Bio-Link subscribers, so your information is not openly posted on the Internet.

Overview
Questions and answers related to starting up a new biotechnology program, called "Experiences at Madison Area Technical College," are compiled by Dr. Joy McMillan, Madison Area Technical College in Madison, Wisconsin. (Although this case study focuses on starting a program at a community college, it can help build the foundation of a program at the High School level.)
