And Now, What Do You Know About Microbes? (post-assessment)

Author(s): Nancy Moreno, PhD, Barbara Tharp, MS, Deanne B. Erdmann, MS, Sonia Rahmati Clayton, PhD, and James P. Denk, MA

Session 1

In the activity, “Microbes: Pre-assessment,” students were asked to pose questions about microbes and indicate what they thought they knew about microbes. Revisit these questions with the class and ask, Can you answer any of the questions now? Discuss the students’ responses. 

Use the information presented to create a class concept map on the board.

Have students return to their groups to review the concept maps they started in the pre-assessment activity. Tell them to focus on their most important findings, and then have each group present one key finding to the class.
