Mt Hood Community College Biology 102 book cover

Mt Hood Community College Biology 102

CC BY (Attribution)   English

Author(s): Christine Anderson, Lisa Bartee

Subject(s): Biology, life sciences

Publisher: Open Oregon Educational Resources

Last updated: 29/06/2024

BI102: Survey of Molecular Life and Genetics is intended for one term of the introductory biology course for non-science majors taught at many two- and four-year colleges. The concepts of genetics, as they apply to the study of life, are introduced, including the principles of inheritance, genetics, and gene regulation.

This textbook incorporates the mandates found in Vision and Change and focuses on the non-content aspects of biology education that are just as important. Additionally, this book explicitly teaches the general education outcomes that we have identified as important for this class. This textbook pulls together biology content resources that are accessible for our community college non-major biology students, as well as resources to provide them with explicit instruction in the quantitative literacy, communication, and information literacy general education outcomes as they relate to the biology content they are learning.

SOU-CCJ230 Introduction to the American Criminal Justice System

Subject(s): Legal aspects of criminology

Publisher: Open Oregon Educational Resources

This OER covers law enforcement, criminal courts, sentencing, penal institutions, and community-based sanctions. It also includes historical and contemporary perspectives on components of the criminal justice system, as well as the legal and constitutional frameworks in which they operate.

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will increase the breadth of their knowledge and understanding of the American Criminal Justice System.
  • Students will enhance their critical thinking skills via writing, reading, and discussion.
  • Students will learn the history, functions, responsibilities, processes, and importance of each component of the criminal justice system.
  • Students will become familiar with research and its relationship to criminal justice policy.
  • Students will use the foundations learned about the American criminal justice system in future CCJ courses.
Additionally, myths and controversies are incorporated in the course covering the above-noted content areas in the American criminal justice system. In our experience, this tends to be the most exciting part of the class. It also helps students build all learning outcomes through assignments, readings, and materials covered in class. The primary goal when writing this book was to make it easy to read, with fun examples, thought-provoking discussion questions, and is accessible to all to ensure that students would read. The content level targeted first-year students who are taking their first course in Criminology and Criminal Justice, but also as a general education course for those that may not intend to major. In order to ensure each area has accessible materials for the course and meets our learning objectives and goals, we have conducted preliminary research in order to determine our best option is moving forward.
