Reflection: Relevance Generations of Traits - Section 3: Explore

 

Creating lessons that include a degree of relevance to students lives is always a good teaching strategy.  One of the great unintended consequences of this strategy is a decrease in classroom disruption and overall misbehavior.  I've always have been a firm believer that well though out lessons embed a classroom management component that requires little to no extra work from the teacher.  

In this particular lesson what is relevant to students is the pursuit to answer the questions of why we are all unique individuals?  This activity allows students to visually see how all of us are a unique combination of traits not just from our parents but rather previous generations whose traits have been passed down to us.
