Assessment: Infographic, Discussions, Worksheet Chart, Consensus Activity Lesson Reflection: I found that this lesson was particularly engaging for my students. The topics are particularly interesting, and having taken a course in environmental philosophy I feel that I have a comprehensive understanding of them. This lesson includes aspects that appeal to both visual/spatial and verbal/linguistic learners. I gave students the opportunity to work in large groups to complete infographic, which provided opportunities for interpersonal learners to excel, but the lesson also requires students to complete work on their own which benefits intrapersonal learners. My yeast growth curve analogy to explain population concerns and their relation to sustainable prosperity engages both visual/spatial learners and logical/mathematical thinkers. I think I would benefit from adding a music video or a song to make the lesson well rounded. I did not have enough time to complete the consensus activity so it will be my lesson opener next class.
