Using Profile Projects To Pull Together Concepts


"The National Research Council (1996) has challenged teaching faculty at all levels to develop activities that promote student inquiry while integrating all aspects of science education. Groups such as the National Science Teachers Association have seized this challenge and supported a wide array of classroom-based support materials designed to promote exemplary science (Yager, 2005). In support of these broad-based efforts, we have developed an organizational framework called the Profile Project that promotes intellectual curiosity, connects biological concepts, and enhances student visual and information literacy skills. Specifically, this project supports National Science Education Standards by promoting the development of self-directed learners and providing faculty a unique classroom assessment technique in science education."
