There is a shortage of classroom exercises for teaching natural selection that require the active participation of students, that have been designed specifically to deal with misconceptions, and that have been shown to be effective in promoting a deep understanding of natural selection. In this investigation, we developed and assessed six classroom exercises for teaching natural selection to undergraduate students. The primary learning goal for the exercises was for students to thoroughly understand natural selection. METHODS Participants and Context We designed and assessed with institutional review board permission six lessons relating to natural selection in an introductory course on ecology and evolution during and

Abstract Researchers aimed at investigating the impact of classroom over crowdedness on teacher- student interactions in teaching and learning process and specifically identify the problems both teachers and students face in over-crowded classrooms and identify solutions to the problems and finally determine the relationship between over-crowded classrooms and teacher-student Interaction in learning and teaching process.
In Africa, the problem of over-crowded classrooms was studied by Ijaiya n. The average number of pupils per classroom in surveyed schools is 81 much higher than the National target of 40 pupils per classroom, in half of the schools; pupils must sit on the floor: Therefore, the researcher investigated the impact of overcrowded classrooms on teacher-students interactions in the process of teaching and learning: Statement of the Problem There was an alarming problem of over-crowded classes in schools of Arusha city council due to high population as it is a city centre.
One class carried pupils, hence it was difficult to imagine how effective was teaching and learning under one teacher. This research therefore, investigated the impact of over-crowded classrooms on teacher-students interaction in teaching and learning process at the selected primary schools in Arusha City council.
To identify the problems both teachers and students face in over-crowded classrooms in teaching-learning process in selected primary schools in Arusha city council.
To identify solutions to the problems both teachers and students face in the overcrowded classrooms on teacher- students interactions in teaching and learning process in selected primary schools in Arusha city council.
To determine the relationship between over-crowded classrooms and teacher-student Interaction in learning and teaching process. What are the problems both teachers and students face in over-crowded classrooms in teaching-learning process in selected primary schools in Arusha city council?
What are the solutions to the problems both teachers and students face in the overcrowded classrooms on teacher- students interactions in teaching and learning process in selected primary schools in Arusha city council?
There is no significant relationship between over-crowded classrooms and teacher-student Interaction in learning and teaching process? Research Hypothesis There is no significant relationship between over-crowded classrooms and teacher-student Interaction in learning and teaching process.
Significance of the Study The researcher hoped that this study would serve school principals to identify the problems faced by the teachers in overcrowded classes, in order to find solutions and to decrease the effect of these problems on the level of teachers participation and students achievement.
This study would provide base for further research in this field and would be very fruitful in the best interest of the students, teachers, administrators and government to think over the problems and do something for their solutions.
The findings from the study would help the government to know the impact of overcrowded classrooms on teacher — student learning process in primary schools hence would find out the ways of how to reduce or remove the impact to primary schools.
The government also would use some of the ways provided by the researcher to overcome the problem to primary schools. The findings of this study is going to help teachers of primary schools to understand the outcome of the overcrowded classrooms in the process of teaching hence use or find out the ways of how to teach the class of more number them the required number.
The teachers of primary schools at will benefit through giving out their views on how to be made in order to reduce the problem through questioners which will be provided to them.
The findings of this study will help the students to know the impact of overcrowded classrooms on students learning process and therefore if the government will reduce the problem through building classrooms, students at primary schools are going to benefit because the performance will increase.
Also findings will help the community to help primary to build classrooms. Scope or Delimitation of the Study This research will be conducted in Arusha city primary schools where two primary schools will be selected as a case study.
The primary schools which were selected included: Limitation of the study This study may be limited by several factors during the field work like; some of the school authorities may refuse to accept the request to correct the information.In , The Babson Survey Research Group reported that 28 percent of all U.S.

In this study, qualitative case study approach is used to look into the perspectives of one junior. Attitudes of Students towards the Study of Physics in College of Education Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria The measurement of student’s attitudes towards physics should take into account their attitude towards learning environment (Crawley and Black, ).
changes of classroom processes which in turn affect the nature of the. Average and below average students will struggle all the more to advance in an overcrowded classroom.
These students need more direct instruction, one-on-one instructional time, and minimal distractions to maximize their learning potential. 3 Main Causes Of Indiscipline In Schools – Explained!
