AmoebaMike the blog:

AmoebaMike is designed to parallel a typical American high school Biology class.  Using a popular text that’s found throughout high schools across America, AmoebaMike also aims to meet most state curriculum standards.  In the case of differing standards, since the blog is based in Indiana, the focus will be on Indiana’s state requirements (pdf).

AmoebaMike the character:

He may be a bit cartoony, but that’s only because the Author’s art skills are questionable at best.  As evidenced by his lab coat and hat, AmoebaMike is part cowboy and part scientist.  Yes he rides an amoeba, and no amoeba don’t have tails.

The Author:

Michael Lombardi is a certified teacher (licensed in Florida for Biology: 6-12) was a licensed science teacher in Florida for 6 years.  While no longer in the classroom, Michael is still in education working primarily in the field of curriculum adaptation for Independence Science, which is based at Purdue University’s Research Park.  Michael’s intent for this blog is to be a free resource to a wide group of students.  Michael earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Science, with a minor in Chemistry from Florida State University, which he attended back when the Seminoles fielded a championship-caliber football team.

If you’d like to connect with the author outside of the AmoebaMike persona, you can find him on many social networks, including:

  1. Welcome to the blogosphere! Can’t wait to hear your opinions on teaching high school. It’s a whole different animal than elementary. ;-) Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope you will visit again!

  2. I appreciated your visit to my blog — thoughtsonteaching.wordpress.com — and your comments about a big issue on most university campuses — online courses.
    I’m involved with the Journalism Education Association’s mentor program, which matches experienced high school journalism teachers with beginning high school media advisers. So I’m interested in curriculum issues in the high school and will look forward to learning more about science education from your blog.

  3. Wow, I’m surprised your blog escaped my notice before.

    I recently won a grant allowing me to set up a wireless classroom–I may be adding some of your posts to the mix the kids will use.

  4. What a great idea, Mike! I wish you the best of luck!

  5. so much superb info on here, : D.
