" This course explores recent historical and anthropological approaches to the study of life, in both medicine and biology. After grounding our conversation in accounts of natural history and medicine that predate the rise of biology as a discipline, we explore modes of theorizing historical and contemporary bioscience. Drawing on the work of historian William Coleman, we examine the forms, functions, and transformations of biological and medical objects of study. Along the way we treat the history of heredity, molecular biology, race, medicine in the colonies and the metropole, and bioeconomic exchange. We read anthropological literature on old and new forms of biopower, at scales from the molecular to the organismic to the global. The course includes readings from the HASTS Common Exam List. The aim of this seminar is to train students to be participants in scholarly debates in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences about the nature of life, the body, and biomedicine."

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Where did we come from? What were our ancestors like? Why do we differ from other animals? How do scientists trace and construct our evolutionary history? The History of Our Tribe: Hominini provides answers to these questions and more. The book explores the field of paleoanthropology past and present. Beginning over 65 million years ago, Welker traces the evolution of our species, the environments and selective forces that shaped our ancestors, their physical and cultural adaptations, and the people and places involved with their discovery and study. It is designed as a textbook for a course on Human Evolution but can also serve as an introductory text for relevant sections of courses in Biological or General Anthropology or general interest. It is both a comprehensive technical reference for relevant terms, theories, methods, and species and an overview of the people, places, and discoveries that have imbued paleoanthropology with such fascination, romance, and mystery.

Developing environmentally literate citizens is the primary goal of environmental science.  One of the four components of environmental literacy is "connecting to nature".  Culture plays a key role in the way individuals connect to their environment.  Understanding culture also supports the development of a culturally responsive classroom and helps students develop an understanding of environmental justice, another key concept of environmental science.  This lesson helps students explore their own culture and compare and contrast it with other cultures.

Sociology is the study of human social life. Human social life is complex and encompasses many facets of the human experience. Because of the complexity, the discipline of sociology subdivided over time into specialty areas. The first section of this book covers the foundations of sociology, including an introduction to the discipline, the methods of study, and some of the dominant theoretical perspectives. The remaining chapters focus on the different areas of study in sociology.

Introduction to Sociology is a featured book on Wikibooks because it contains substantial content, it is well-formatted, and the Wikibooks community has decided to feature it on the main page or in other places. Note: See "Instructor Resources" to find a list of Course Adoptions and accompanying PPTs.

Rating
0.0 stars

The Wisconsin Social Studies/Civics K-5 Suggested Scope & Sequence is divided by grade. Each grade has a theme, with K-2 having a common theme of “place” and 3-5 having a common theme of “Wisconsin and U.S. Studies”. Each grade has 4-10 topics, which could align to local units. This formatting was adapted from the 2018 History and Social Science Framework by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and
Secondary Education.

Each topic is further divided into planning ideas tied to specific grade-level indicators from the Wisconsin Standards for Social Studies (2018). These planning ideas include:
• Potential Essential Questions, tied to the standards
• Focusing Questions for the topic
• Driving (DQ) and Guiding (GQ) Questions from the Educating for American Democracy Roadmap
• Specific Social Studies Indicators met with this topic
• Important Terms and Points to Consider
• Supporting Resources to Consider, including lesson plans from trusted resources, and suggested additional texts such as primary sources and trade books.

The essential, focusing, driving, and guiding questions are meant to help guide instruction
and determine quality resources and lessons for use in the classroom.
