“Fostering Scientific Literacy in the Biology Classroom”

Hosted by Erin Baumgartner


If you teach the non-majors biology course, you likely aim to help students build their scientific literacy. Given that course may be the only science class they take in college, it's crucial that students walk away as more informed citizens and with an understanding of how to evaluate scientific claims that they hear in the news and on social media.

Join the Norton Biology team to learn how "Biology Now" Fourth Edition can help you meet these goals. Erin Baumgartner will share tangible tools and tips from her own 15+ years of teaching experience, including: how to highlight the relevancy of science, the importance of objectivity, and activities/assignments that help build skills.
