: First, tell how this event (lecture, play, presentation,field trip, etc.) made you feel. This reaction is the emotional one.It made me feel a little anxious learning about all the differenttypes of venom and how damaging they can be on the body. I amsomewhat nervous about the ocean now, because a large number of the top ten most venomous animals live in the ocean. The cone snailwhich shoots out a harpoon with venom so powerful that it is beingstudied as a bio weapon.
The second reaction is intellectual. What did it makeyou think about? Once it was over (or during the event) did you findyourself: agreeing, disagreeing, making connections, consideringcontrasts, proposing alternatives, making predictions, etc? Be specificand give examples.
What stood out to me in this program is how the the type of venom and the delivery system is highly adapted for its venomousanimal. The toxins in jellyfish paralyze fish extremely quickly bystoping the heart, which is advantageous to the jellyfish whose flimsytentacles could be damaged if the fish fought. By knowing themechanisms that venom affects the body helps to make better antivenoms.
The third reaction asks you to relate this event to one of the corelearning outcomes (CLOs) on your syllabus for this class. How did thisevent help you better understand or relate to that outcome? Bespecific and give examples.
