A. Course description This course will build skills in research and inquiry that will enhance the participant s natural history knowledge. On-line, we will provide reading and discussion to prepare you for field investigation then we will meet you for five intensive days in South Dakota. We will spend four days in the Badlands National Park and one day in the Black Hills learning to use a variety of sampling methods such as ethograms, mapping, prediction and observation. We will study prairie dogs, bison, and other mammals, and we will learn about the vegetation and the unique geology of this area. At the conclusion, you will be asked to go back on-line and complete your observations and build on your field experiences. B. Statement of purpose: This course is designed to provide students with enhanced skills in inquiry and field research while building a greater understanding of the large mammals and natural communities of the Great Plains and prairie biome. C. Schools and Society: The need for inquiry skills and research understanding and knowledge is essential in today s classroom and has been highlighted in both state and federal guidelines for

4 education. The acquisition of these skills is best accomplished by actual practice and use. These same skills can then be applied in the classroom and local area. D. Teachers and Learners: The understanding of social structures and interactions depends upon our understanding of systems. The Badlands and the large mammals give us a chance to not only develop research skills, but understand the interrelationships that are part of all systems both social and biological. E. Knowledge: The large mammals are often referred to as charismatic mega fauna because of their appeal. But we really do not know them in depth and this course will provide the participants with a high level of knowledge and understanding about their behavior, natural history, the prairie biome, the landscape and geology, and the politics of the park and protection of the species. F. Inquiry and Reflection: The entire course is built upon inquiry, research, and reflection. There will be discussion, prediction, observation, data collection, and analysis during each day of the field study. SUGGESTED PACKING AND EQUIPMENT LIST Clothing Guidelines Dress is casual throughout the program. Flexibility in clothing is the general rule for comfort.
