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).
Please have a look around and feel free to ask questions or leave me comments!
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.
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.
