Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Written in Bone: Forensic Anthropology (5 Day Mini-research Project) - Section 2: Day 1: Explore


One of the videos in this Blendspace is over an hour in length. I do not expect the students to watch the entire video, but rather to skim through it at their own pace. Some students will take an interest in the topic and will really want to watch the whole thing. For these students, I offer to leave it on my website for the week so they can watch it at their leisure. However, please note that watching the entire one hour video in class would not be beneficial, as it will lose many students' interest and cover more information that necessary to meet the objectives.
