information to students
student need to take what they already know and apply it to what they do not know. giving the students a chance to do hands on work after they are given the lesion will help them remember the information and be able to apply it later on.
Instructing a healthcare class hands is the best for most students that's when it all comes together and students retain the information given.
Yes I agree Holly, application is very important for students. Often times older students need that relationship between the assignment and how it applies to thier goals or reasonings.
