  • Author(s) (last name followed by first initials; secondary authors: initials followed by last name); year; Book title or article title; publisher (for books) or Periodical title (for articles); volume and page numbers (both for articles)

Formatted examples:

About this project draft page

My Biology in elementary schools course provides hands-on teaching experience for our students while providing a service to local schools by supplementing their science curriculum. The format of this collaborative effort is as follows:

  • Collaborating teachers from our partner schools provide a list of learning objectives specific to the needs of their students.
  • Saint Michael's College students develop short lesson plans to address the learning objectives.
  • After dry running the activities in the laboratory for their peers, our students teach their lessons to small groups of grade school students either on our campus or in the classrooms of the partner schools.
  • Our students then reflect on their experience and re-work their lesson ideas in light of their experience working with the children.
