Reflection: Checks for Understanding The Nerve of Stem Cells! Day 1 - Section 3: Explore


       During this activity, assigning students times for tasks helps a great deal to keep them focused and discussion of post task is critical to get a gauge on how students are actively engaged in the activities. I have learned to stress the connections between each activity and to maintain the overarching theme of how the nervous system formed during each discussion point. This helped students of all learning levels to continuously review and understand the continuity and scaffolding nature of the activities. This was a big a-ha moment for me while I instructed.
