List of journals that publish plant science pedagogy articles?

Hello all,
         Does anyone have a list of journals that accept and publish 
plant science pedagogy articles for the undergraduate level of 
instruction?  I know a few but am certainly not aware of all of the 
potential venues.  I would be willing to collate and post such a list 
from any responses I receive.
         I am also interested in tracking down or assembling a 
bibliography of plant science articles for the UG level of teaching. 
Again I would be willing to maintain such a bibliography.  Primarily I 
am interested in laboratory exercises, but lecture concepts are also of 
interest.  Since Carol Reiss' manual seems to be a baseline for everyone 
in the field I don't see the potential for a whole new book coming out 
anytime soon, but I would like to gather together innovations and ideas 
that have made it into print since then.  Additionally, since many good 
ideas are often presented at the ASPB meeting, I would also be 
interested in collecting abstracts of the education posters in a 
bibliography so that the author can be contacted if the lab/concept has 
appeal.
         As you may guess I am wanting to 1) assemble a better lab
curriculum for my plant physiology course based on the trial and error 
of others who have put time into a similar endeavor and 2) decide if any 
of the innovations/ideas for labs that I generate are novel and have 
interest to a community so that I may gain some scholarship credit for 
the time I put into the course.  An approach I am particularly in is 
whether anyone has had success with integrating 'service learning' into 
a lab based science course?
         If this has already been done or exists elsewhere on the web, I
would be most grateful to be pointed in that direction.

Sincerely,

Douglas Bielenberg
