I was thinking about the Lesson Study model of collaboration and I wanted to see if anyone wanted to try and work together on a unit which we would try out in our classes. I have evolution, plants, a few human systems, and vertebrate diversity (I usually do this outside of class) left to cover.
I was thinking we could pick a week or two and discuss what activities and labs work best. Then we would try them out and discuss how they went. I would be willing to film my class to provide more food for discussion.
It would be even cooler if part of our collaboration involved having our students collaborate (a voicethread, wiki, or discussion board). Anyways, if you think you might want to work together on a week or 2 or lessons, let me know.
I am using Campbell 7th edition, but I don't think that different texts would limit our ability to teach the same activities.
