Mark Johnson

This week we welcome journalist Mark Johnson to the show.  As medical and science journalist for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, researching and communicating science to the public is the core of Mark’s work.  Excelling in long form journalism, Mark shared the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for One In A Billion: A Boy’s Life, a Medical Mystery. Mark joins us to tell us about his experiences in science journalism and to discuss his new series from the lab of Dr. Murray Blackmore.  Listen to the show to see how you might use science articles in the classroom to learn science content, discuss ethical issues and examine examples of real scientific research.
