Overall Purpose, Objectives and Curriculum Sequence
State Standards Lesson 1: DNA Replication Lesson 2: Protein Synthesis ... Grading Rubric PURPOSE:

The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate to the biology student that the cell is not a static object. It is a complex functioning unit carrying on those activities necessary for life. This unit will emphasize the role of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) and cell organelles within the cell as interrelated cooperating and functioning components dependent upon one another for the survival of the whole. OBJECTIVES:
The students will be able to demonstrate a working knowledge of cell interactions such as DNA replication, protein synthesis (transcription and translation), through active participation in a cooperative group. CURRICULUM SEQUENCE:
This unit will follow the unit in which the students have learned the structures and functions of the cell organelles and cell dynamics. This unit will include instruction in DNA replication, transcription, and translation. The test at the end of the unit will be one in which the students become a living working cell within the confines of the classroom.

CREATIVE WAYS TO teach EVOLUTIONARY CONCEPTS. talents and interests, for planningsuitable activities. Synthesis,; Mutation,; Gene Expression,; Molecular biology
Myrtle A. Brijbasi
1993 Woodrow Wilson Biology Institute
DNA, the genetic blueprint of living organisms, plays an essential role in the continuity of life. Therefore, the structure and function of DNA must be explained to students as simply as possible, using the most appealing methodologies. DNA is often described by scientists as "the chemical language of life" (Monsanto, 1990). If the language were "edited"/changed, then the message it delivers to the cell would also be changed. The result is a natural event in evolution. Evolution is the genetic change in a population of organisms over time , produced by the integrating agencies of natural selection and variation. (Beck, Liems, Simpson, 1991) Changes (mutations) in the gene pool of a population result in genotypic variation. These influence the destiny of the population from one generation to the next.

    Biographical Information
    I have been teaching at the same school for six years now. I teach 7th grade Social Studies and Science. Originally, I planned on becoming a lawyer but plans changed after leaving D.C. as an intern and going to NY for a week to visit my cousin. It was there that he inspired me to become a teacher. Each day I would read to him, take him to school and participate in his school activities, which really changed me. I have been blessed with a wonderful family. My dad (who plays golf with me), mom and my brother – Mark are close knit. In my pastime, I love to travel. I have been to countries like Japan, Malaysia, Singapore (I’m originally from here), Thailand, Nepal, Mexico, China and Canada. I even lived in Mexico for 4 months as a missionary. I can still speak a bit of Spanish if given the opportunity. So here’s a bit about me!

    Teach a Person to Fish Jan Swinton
    Teach a Person to Fish: Report on a Paired Biology
    by Jan Swinton At Spokane Falls Community College, Introductory Biology has traditionally been a challenging class for science as well as nonscience majors. Many beginning and returning students are confronting for the first time, the challenge of having to learn a great deal of technical material at a rapid pace. In response, biology instructor Diana DeFelice and English/Reading instructor Jan Swinton have paired Biology 101 with a Study Skills class in two modes. Though the makeup and format of the two differ somewhat, the goals have been the same: to help students learn biology and pass the course with a C or better; to help students learn study strategies that they could use immediately in the biology course as well as in other classes; and to help students develop more personal responsibility for their learning. "I was taking a ‘teach a person to fish’ approach in this project," says Jan Swinton. "If we could teach the students HOW to learn biology, and not just the biology, they could take this approach to other classes. I wanted the students to recognize that learning is their responsibility, no matter how tough the textbook and no matter how complex and fast-moving the lectures are."

    BRD Activities in South Dakota
    • In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Agricultural Research Service , the BRD is conducting experiments on the use of prescribed fires to enhance biological control of leafy spurge, a major exotic pest plant found throughout the northern Great Plains. Results of these studies will benefit ranchers as well as State and Federal land managers.
    • Information collected under a BRD science initiative focusing on the Central Plains will help resource managers in South Dakota identify land management practices to protect the remaining grasslands in the State while accommodating economic activity. The initiative fosters partnerships among scientists, farmers, and State and local planners to help maintain populations of the unique plants and animals found in native grasslands.
    • The Conservation Reserve Program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture has taken millions of acres of marginal farmland out of production to enhance their value as food and cover for wildlife. The BRD has been cooperating in a number of integrated studies to identify the benefits of this program to ducks, pheasants, hawks, and songbirds. Results are of interest to hunters, farmers, and conservation groups.
    • BRD scientists are conducting studies in the prairie pothole region of the State on the effects of coyote and red fox predation on duck nesting success. Information gathered during this study will be used to implement strategies to increase duck production in Waterfowl Production Areas administered by the

    Bentley College, Waltham, Mass.
    Marcy Crary Our team-taught elective, "Managing Diversity in the Workplace," focuses on the opportunities and challenges of a diverse workplace and the knowledge and skills required for working productively with differences. We use simulations, role-plays, case-studies, and exercises to explore the individual, group, and organizational dynamics in which we all play a role. Students do a "cultural immersion" paper for which they are asked to visit a place in which they are in the minority and write about their experience. They also interview two managers (one the same race and gender as the student and the other a different race and/or gender) about their personal experiences with diversity and their companies' strategies for creating more inclusive and productive work environments.

    Teresa Healy, Elaine Klett, Barbara Tozzi, Linda Wang Many courses in our mathematics department have strong problem-solving components where students use mathematical skills and concepts while working with real-world data. This provides an opportunity for introducing issues of diversity. For example, students in our statistics course compare and contrast data on diverse population groups. These students might also perform Chi Square Tests of Independence on data relating types of professional jobs held at colleges to ethnic groups. Students in basic math courses analyze charts and graphs relating race and age to health and other social issues.

    Lessons About Drugs, Nerve Gas Teach Students Biology and Chemistry More Effectively
    DURHAM, N.C. By developing lessons about cocaine, amphetamines, drug testing and nerve gas, a pharmacology professor and a chemistry teacher have discovered that they can grab the attention of high school students to more effectively teach them biology and chemistry. In fact, they found in a nationwide test of their more relevant approach, students taught using the lessons scored far higher gains in their understanding of biology and chemistry than is common in even the most successful curriculum experiments. The developers of the new curriculum called the Pharmacology Education Partnership (PEP) are Rochelle Schwartz-Bloom, a professor of pharmacology and cancer biology at Duke University Medical Center, and Myra Halpin, a chemistry teacher at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. They published the results of a comparative analysis of their approach with the usual teaching methods in an article in the November 2003 Journal of Research in Science Teaching. Development of the PEP curriculum was supported by the science education program at the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
