Which study method would you most recommend?
FLASH CARDS. Flash cards incorporate all three learning styles. They are visual (you SEE the question or definition and its answer), kinesthetic (you move them and flip them around), and, if you follow my advice and read them aloud, you have auditory as well. The are the BEST study tool because you get the most bang for your buck.
Explain the Theory of Endosymbiosis.
Scientists have noticed that small organelles in plant and animal cells--mitochondria and chloroplasts--are very similar to bacteria. These organelles also have their own DNA and divide on their own, completely independent of the cell. This evidence led scientists to form the Theory of Endosymbiosis, which says that mitochondria and chloroplasts were once free-living bacteria that were absorbed into an early eukaryotic cell. These cells eventually, over a long period, came to depend on one another (the eukaryotic cell got food from the bacteria; the bacteria received protection from the eukaryotic cell). Over time, they came to be completely dependent on one another, neither able to live without the other.
Why is using Bloom's Taxonomy in the classroom important for student understanding?
Bloom's Taxonomy creates a framework that makes it easy for teachers to create high-level thinking questions. We don't want our students to only be able to answer multiple choice questions; we want them to have to really think. We want them to take what we teach them in the classroom and be able to apply it to real life. Bloom's aids teachers in creating questions and activities that promote deeper-level thinking.
