School is in full swing in Colorado and Wyoming! At Donor Alliance, we know that teachers have been working hard for weeks: setting up classrooms, planning curriculum and looking for new and innovative ways to teach students about their content.
For those innovative teachers looking for more interactive ways to engage their students while teaching practical information, Donor Alliance has a FREE school curriculum program, Transplantation Science, which teaches the science behind organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation to students in grades 7-12. Simply submit a request here and we will send an educator and materials to your school to teach your students.
New Items Available:
- New Website Resources: We spent the summer making updates to the FAQs and Educational Resources pages on our website. An outline of the Transplantation Science curriculum is now available to download as well as easy access to our warm-up activities and intro videos.
- Sheltered Instruction Workbooks for English Language Learners (ELLs): Whether you have a whole class of Sheltered Biology students or a few ELLs in some of your classes, we have new workbooks available for these students. The workbooks are based on the Middle School workbook content with simplified texts to read and scaffolded activities. When requesting a class, include the number of books you would like in the Notes section and we will let your educator know.
- Transplantation Science Traveling Trunk: If your school is located more than 100 miles from Denver, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, or Casper and you teach less than 50 students, consider signing up for the Transplantation Science Traveling Trunk We will ship all the materials for the class to you, you set up and run the class and we will schedule an educator to video conference with your students.
- High School Medical Careers Program: If Transplantation Science doesn’t fit your school’s needs, consider requesting a speaker through our Donor Alliance Staff Speakers Bureau The Medical Careers presentation includes an overview of the donation process and the facts about donation combined with a review of the careers available at Donor Alliance. This is ideal for students who are interested in medical careers and a great way to invite students to explore what is available in the fields of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.
