article description
In today’s society when it is really hard to keep students’ attention, it is necessary to incorporate a variety of learning styles to inspire different kinds of learners. If students are failing classes because they were struggling to pay attention is it 100% their fault? Everyone is different and has different learning styles that need attention. It would be better for students to actively participate in lessons rather than just absorb information. This project was on designing an activity based lesson on evolution and adaptations. There was also an opportunity to see how effective it was with two BIOL 2050 classes.
