This 32-slide teaching PowerPoint presentation covers Topic 2.2 - Cell Structure & Function in the 2019 AP Biology curriculum. Each slide identifies the relevant learning objective and essential knowledge being covered as well as key terms that students should make note of (editable).
The presentations themselves contains minimal information as they are intended to be used with teacher guidance. There are sometimes 'Video' slides which link to relevant and informative YouTube content as well as 'Review' slides which present basic questions. The slides are formatted to be visually pleasing and to also print well for handouts or revision. Please see the preview file (first 8 slides) for an idea of the aesthetic and level of detail in the presentation.
I have had success using these presentations to review topics after students have been exposed to the material at home. I typically have the class read relevant material (book, websites, etc.) and then watch the videos the day before introducing a topic. During the class period, I use the slides to structure the discussion around the AP Bio Essential Knowledge objectives. The remaining class time is spent reinforcing the knowledge or working on activities geared toward the 'Learning Objectives'.
**These presentations are based on the AP Biology Course Guide and does not follow any textbook
As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. These are always a work in progress!
