Web Sites of Interest

Human Anatomy

This website, crafted by the State University of New York-Upstate Medical University, brings together key resources for students and others interested in human anatomy. These materials were designed with first year medical students in mind, but they will also be of use to ndividuals taking biology and other science-related courses. On the site, visitors can make their way through six sections ranging from extremities to the head and neck. Each area contains a variety of detailed anatomical charts, glossaries, and images. Radiology resources are also prominently featured within each section, providing students with a different perspective of the human body through x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. Other helpful resources include fact sheets, quizzes, teaching materials, and other freely available course materials offered from other medical schools. [KMG]

Understanding Science: Teaching Resources

The world of science is diverse and fascinating, but traditional methods of teaching sometimes don't do it justice. This site from the University of California helps teachers help their students become fascinated by the process of scientific discovery. The site contains several "teachers' lounges" where educators can share information, resources, and also learn about new pedagogical developments and innovations. Visitors shouldn't miss the Guide to Understanding Science 101, which includes answers to questions like What is science? and so on. Moving on, the site also contains other areas, including Correcting Misconceptions, Teaching Tools, and Conceptual Framework, which helps educators identify age-appropriate learning goals. [KMG]

Conserving the Future: Wildlife Refuges and the Next Generation

This thoughtful policy document from the National Wildlife Refuge System "sets forth a path for the next decade." Illuminating the Refuge System's vision, Conserving the Future highlights the best ways to continue the organization's mission of preserving and enhancing unique habitats and recreation areas for future generations. On the homepage, visitors can learn about the implementation team, read through their 24 recommendations, and check up on their stated goals over the coming years. Users can also read the entire Vision Document online or look over the complete Implementation Plan. Additionally, the homepage offers a Recommendations drop down menu (not to be confused with The Recommendations PDF) that offers brief synopses around themes such as "Conservation Plans," "Access to Data," and "Hunting/Fishing."
