Biology class

Biology class (Anne Martin, Grade 9)

Anne taught them the function and operation of the heart in pumping blood, with the help of coloured slides of heart diagrams and an overhead projector. Students got to try using the stethoscope, mechanical blood pressure monitor, and observe microscopic slides of heart tissues. That much is pretty standard science theory teaching plus experimentation.

The interesting bit was to see students' active participation in class. They asked interesting questions such as international trade of organs, and I saw the teacher showing the world map in explaining the related geography. Another question was why a person’s vision sometimes blacks out temporarily when one stands up quickly after squatting.

Anne emphasised relating the subject to their daily life to help students remember and understand.
