Abstract

This project provides a theoretical framework to support the use of the local context and the experiences of students in the teaching and learning of biology. Eleven activities have been designed to incorporate the local context and the experiences of students in a small isolated fishing community. The stress is on linking the daily activities of these fishing people to the concepts and issues in the currently Biology 3201 course. However, these activities are adaptable to a general science course and may be molded to fit specific contexts using student input. The final activity and the questionnaire in Appendix A provide the opportunities to continue the process and to design additional activities that fit the local context.
