Prior to the activity, students are assigned a reading to give them the needed knowledge for the activity. This reading is summarized by the instructor before the activity begins.
Individually, students formulate a physiological strength and a weakness on a piece of paper. The paper is then crumpled and thrown at the instructor (Snowballing). The instructor assigns groups of 4-6, distributing the “Snowballs” among the groups.
Working as groups, the students propose solutions to the weaknesses identified in the snowballs, then write the issues and their corresponding solutions on a whiteboard. They select one, and present their solution for overcoming it to the class.
This activity is followed by an interactive lecture in which students are required to answer questions, which can itself be followed either by an online interactive game or a peer-instruction activity employing Poll Everywhere.
