Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Taxonomy of Fungi (Part 2/2) - Section 7: Teacher Mini-Lecture: How Alternation of Generations Works


In the second day of this lesson, we work to mature students' naive thinking about taxonomy by helping students better understand differences in anatomical structure and life cycles by using fungi as a model organism.  They also need to understand the importance of Fungi to humans.  We use it for food and we also need to control certain types harmful fungi. This video explains how I aid my students in improving their taxonomic thinking.
