In the beginning of March I wrote about using undergraduate lab exercises as a tool for community out reach and teaching. You can read that post here. In April we are trying to expand the use of graduate labs for science teacher development. Recently a School of Ed class of Masters students taking a science teaching course sat in on an graduate lab where the students were purifying genomic DNA from mammalian cells.
I asked the Ed students to write down their descriptions and reflection as to how they might take their observations of scientists practicing science process skills and apply these to their students.
