Each week Mike Magee, MD, discusses a timely science, medicine, and health topic on his Health Politics Web site (www.healthpolitics.com). Dr. Magee's extensive archives have now been made available to Access Excellence users as "Health, Science, and Society." The archival materials that have been selected by AE's editors all meet the following guidelines and criteria: They address National Science Education Standards and/or National Health Education Standards; they are included in middle and high school science and health curricula; and they are of particular relevance to middle and high school students. Each topic includes four to seven discussion questions, links to additional information on the topic, and links to downloadable slides and transcripts of Dr. Magee's talk.
The text of Dr. Magee's presentation is available as a downloadable
video, as a Web-based HTML file, and as a printer-ready PDF file.
Presentation slides can be downloaded as PDF files or as PowerPoint
presentations (with speaker notes) ready for you to use as part of your own presentation. In addition,
some topics are further explored by a guest interview or an in-depth
article that provides background information on the particular topic.
