Natural Selection: Using Simulations and Storyboards to Demonstrate How Populations Change

Saturday November 10

Akron

Lisa Bugenske (Beachwood High School) & Alexander Paulchell (Beachwood High School)  HOW do populations change over time?  WHY do populations change over time? In this workshop we will use different simulations and models to help students answer these important questions.  You’ll learn how to “see” what students are thinking and identify many of the common pitfalls surrounding students’ ideas about evolution. You’ll come away with activities and various ways for students to represent changing populations — adaptable to all levels of Biology. Please arrive about 15 minutes early to complete registration and enjoy some light refreshments.  After the event, please feel welcome to join us for lunch at a local hotspot to debrief and network with your new colleagues. Location TBA.
