In this brown bag, Dr. Landin will share activities designed to help students learn biology by drawing illustrations for text and, alternatively, by developing text for images. Drawing can encourage greater attention to detail in writing activities. Alternatively, developing captions for images works as a stress-free exercise in careful word selection. Be prepared to sketch (stick figures welcome)!
