THS Teacher Uses New Approach to Enhance Learning –
Timpson High School science teacher Mrs. Jourden recently conducted a comprehensive review of learning skills with her biology classes. Students worked with a partner using hands on materials to determine mastery of learning objectives. The stations included cells, cellular processes, DNA and RNA genetics, biochemistry, systems, balance and environment. Students have developed individual journals this year that allow them to make notes, recorded course related information that helps them review skills taught in the classroom. Mrs. Jourden’s hands-on approach has enhanced student learning and provides a method for students to be active partners in their learning. Using these methods has also proven to help students better retain and apply the information they have learned.
