This lesson thoroughly teaches when to use "less" and "fewer". It includes a brief explanation, followed by three pages of practice sentences to complete and correct. Would occupy about 10 to 15 minutes of class time.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Ph.D. in Zoology, UCDavis; 25 years as avian ecology researcher; 10 years teaching essentially introductory college biology to 8th-grade students at a math and science specialty public school. Extensive writing experience, non-fiction and fiction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I do as many hands-on activities, labs, and engaging exercises as possible. I have high expectations and my students generally do well in meeting them. I show students a lot of live protists, doing much microscopy. I try to model what it is to be a professional, PhD-level scientist. In Biology Club (every Friday), 16 students are learning to key beetles out to the family level, and getting pretty good at it--this is more of a college-level activity. I also teach them to make study skins of mammals, and we do tons of dissections of road-killed birds and mammals.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The occasional invited speaker at scientific meetings; numerous scientific publications.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Much field experience studying birds, especially in Mexico and Guatemala. Fluent in spanish. See my recent book: "Neotropical birds of prey: biology and ecology of a forest raptor community." Also very fond of herps, insects, and small-stream fishes of the eastern U.S. Botanist at the hobby level, and some plant ecology experience and research. Grow hay on our 5 acres for her 2 horses; have a few tractors my age and equipment to match. Enjoy writing (nonfiction and fiction) and drawing natural history subjects.
