Issue-Oriented Science: Using Socioscientific Issues to Engage Biology Students

In today’s global society, with science and technology advancing at a rapid pace, issues about biological topics are common. A typical standards-based high school or general college-level biology classroom naturally lends itself to teaching issue-oriented science.
