Hello, I am a senior in college studying elementary education. I recently used a lesson plan from this site titled Sense of Smell. I had to teach this lesson to a group of fellow future educators. Everyone loved this exercise, however, my professor disputed some of the information in the What's Going On section. My professor (PhD) said that taste is influenced by smell but no scent molecules travel up to the olfactory organ through a back door (the passage at the back of the throat). I really liked this activity and felt that it taught the lesson effectively, but I do not want to present inaccurate information to my students. Please help me resolve this theoretical conflict. What sources were used to compile this lesson? What are the credentials of Karen Kalumuck? What fact-checking procedure is followed before a lesson is posted on this website? Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Amber Hardin Get more from the Web. FREE MSN Explorer download :
