The podcast that I listened to was entitled Misconceptions: Breaking down the barriers.  This podcast showcased teachers techniques used to break down students misconceptions about evolutionary biology.  When teaching a subject, depending on the topic, a lot of students already have preconceived ideas about the subject and those ideas corrupt the material that is being taught to them.  Prior to beginning an education lesson this podcast introduced ways to acknowledge students’ preconceived ideas and create opportunity to inform them if their notions are right or wrong.  This is important because people have preconceived ideas and if not acknowledged than bad information would be continuously passed along.
