1. Introduction

Interactive Case Studies for Biology: A Problem Solving Approach  
This session will introduce teachers to interactive on-line case studies that are designed to help students learn difficult biological concepts through inquiry and problem solving.   Each case provides a captivating real-world scenario where students solve problems by making observations, collecting and analyzing data, forming and testing hypotheses, and communicating their findings.  As students complete their explorations, teachers receive immediate formative assessments to guide teachers in identifying which concepts and skills require additional study.   We will meet at South Cobb High School in the 9th Grade Academy Building.
