Title: Permanent foresty plots: a potentially valuable teaching resource in undergraduate biology porgrams for the Caribbean

Author: Valles, H.; Carrington, C.M.S.;

Date: 2016

Source: Caribbean Naturalist Special issue no.1

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: There has been a recent proposal to change the way that biology is taught and learned in undergraduate biology programs in the USA so that students develop a better understanding of science and the natural world. Here, we use this new, recommended teaching– learning framework to assert that permanent forestry plots could be a valuable tool to help develop biology literacy in the Caribbean and to help reverse what we perceive to be a trend of increasing detachment from nature in our Caribbean undergraduate biology students.

Keywords: teaching–learning framework, biology literacy, teaching methods, teaching tools, Caribbean
