Guided notes and PowerPoint I use to introduce RNA in 9th grade Biology. Includes objectives and essential questions. PowerPoint contains 12 slides (plus an embeded copy of the Amoeba Sisters youtube video on DNA vs. RNA), guided notes is 2 pages plus a full answer key. Designed to accompany Miller and Levine Biology Foundations Edition.

HS-LS1-1. Construct a model of transcription and translation to explain the roles of DNA and RNA that code for proteins that regulate and carry out essential functions of life.
Clarification Statements: Proteins that regulate and carry out essential functions of life include enzymes (which speed up chemical reactions), structural proteins (which provide structure and enable movement), and hormones and receptors (which send and receive signals).
• The model should show the double-stranded structure of DNA, including genes as part of DNA’s transcribed strand, with complementary bases on the non-transcribed strand.
State Assessment Boundaries: Specific names of proteins or specific steps of transcription and translation are not expected in state assessment.Cell structures included in transcription and translation will be limited to nucleus, nuclear membrane, and ribosomes for state assessment.
