 Biology 448 – Directed Studies: Peer Teaching

Many undergraduates develop expertise in areas of plant biology. The peer teaching directed studies provides students experience in classroom teaching. In Biology 209, 210, and 321 undergraduate students are mentored by graduate teaching assistants and me.
