A Classroom Model for Teaching Natural and Artificial Selection on Your Schedule

by Carolina Staff

 

Think you don’t have enough time for students to observe the results of selection pressure on plant populations in real time? Whether you’re teaching natural selection or plant breeding for desirable traits, it is beneficial for students to take an active part in their learning. This 75-minute webinar will show you how to accomplish that.

We’ll present 3 easily achievable lesson schedules that will allow students to gather real data on the effects of exerting selection pressure on a heritable trait that is easy to identify. We’ll also offer examples of how students can visualize their data at any level and how advanced students can analyze their data using χ2 analysis.

Participants will come away from the webinar with knowledge of a new, easy-to-use model of natural and artificial selection in plants, as well as plant-breeding practices, that can be implemented in these time scales: approximately 1 week, approximately 3 weeks, and approximately 7 weeks.
