Reflection: Modeling Reading DNA - Translation - Section 3: Explore

 

This activity is a great example of how modeling makes content accessible to all students.  Pacing along with modeling allows students of all levels to learn and wrap their minds around difficult concepts such as Biology's Central Dogma.  

The use of modeling allows abstract concepts to come alive through the use of visual and kinesthetic learning modalities.  In the beginning of the school year I assess students preferred learning style and the majority of my students self-assess themselves as visual and kinesthetic learners.  Possibly due to their proficiency in English they prefer activities where they are not solely dependent on text based instructional resources.  As I continue to challenge my students I will continue to find ways to incorporate the use of models in my teaching.
