Mon, Jul 20, 2020 4:05 PM Career Investigations - Medical Scientist
One of the most important topics for our high school students is career explorations. Students need a purpose, and exploring different careers can help them identify goals for themselves and provide direction as they slowly gain more freedom to choose their course and career path. This resource provides a great introduction to the career of a Medical Scientist and covers all of the most pressing things student want to know: what the professional's daily life is like and what education and training they needed to get there. I like that this resource also provides an "advice for students" section, contains colorful photos, and is a short, easy read. The only thing that could make this resource better would be a link to a corresponding video for extension of student engagement. That being said, I am looking forward to using this resource in my classroom this year.
Mon, Jul 20, 2020 3:58 PM Circadian Rhythm - Fruit Flies & Students
This resource covers one unit of 8 lessons and engages students through Project Based Learning related to their daily lives. In addition to collecting data on their own environment, students will learn about how we use fruit flies in scientific investigations and students get to learn how to use simulation software to generate and collect data. While this article does not provide detailed lesson plans for each of the eight lessons, it does provide a purposeful overview and examples of rubrics for assessment of student learning. This resource is a great outline for a student-centered unit in a Human Physiology of Biology classroom.
Mon, Jul 20, 2020 3:49 PM Models for Kinesthetic Learners
This lesson looks like a lot of fun for students. It engages students through multiple hands-on and verbal activities including having students repeat a chant about the structure of DNA while modeling with their own arms, hands and shoulders. Students also use different colored pipe cleaners to build their own double-stranded DNA. I can't wait to use this in my classroom this year!
