[Killietalk] Re: Killietalk Digest, Vol 23, Issue 24
I can certainly write it, if there's interest in the AKA of setting up a
proper channel for distribution. I'm doing a program at MACNA this year on how to
design instructional programs around aquaria in the classroom.
From: "Koran, David HQ02" David_Koran at hq02.usace.army.mil
Another approach centered on enticing students and Mike Jacobs related the
success he had and interest stimulated by his project. In the past there is
some thought about offering or sponsoring student membership in the AKA.
Personally I think if you look at the economics it isn't a wise investment.
At the discussion there were also a few folks who were involved in education
and also related some of their experiences both classroom and curriculum
approaches. I had contact both Mike Reed (Michigan Killi-Kids guy) and Tim
Patterson (sort of took over for Royal Ingersoll) about how they used killies
in the classroom. I have suggested that maybe we might be better off if we
produced a teacher's guide for using killies in the classroom. We might
consider this as an offering produced through Special Publications. However,
I can't write the thing and I need expert input and help in putting it
together. Reference to the AKA should be part of it as well as a list of
resources teachers can access to assure there success. I don't think we
should expect to be swamped with members from this but it will plant a seed.
