Reflection: Real World Applications Cellular Hydration - Movement Across a Membrane Day 2 - Section 4: Connecting the Learning


I am confident students will remember the process of osmosis. The research shows that we remember information with more ease if it is presented in a story format than as a series of simple facts or concepts.

The story of the men aboard the USS Indianapolis is powerful. The details of cellular dehydration are told within the context of the days the men spent in the water awaiting rescue. It is simply hard to forget.

Bringing literature into the science classroom engages students in content and helps provide a context for remembering new information.
