NOTE: We have a general Unlectured Series video (above) to preview the general sequence of items that is in all of our Unlectured Series topics. As the video preview mentions, the preview video uses the 'mitosis' topic (our first Unlectured Series topic) as an example. However, we have placed two images from the slideshow portion in the preview images specifically that you can view.

*UPDATE June 29, 2019: We made an updated version of the Amoeba Sisters DNA replication video (on YouTube) with improved audio and art. It is very similar to the original video (on YouTube) and does not change the rest of the Unlectured work (which itself has recent DNA replication art). We will keep both of our videos available on YouTube and either one can be used, but we are including 1 additional annotated video script template for the updated video in this zip folder as it has a little bit extra about topoisomerase.*

Purpose of Unlectured Series:

Our Unlectured Series offers an alternative to lecturing on a topic by promoting questioning, student discussion, and student creation. The series is designed to be used in place of traditional lecturing, and all topics are designed to be used as part of a science course that already offers hands-on lab experiences. In addition, many portions are very useful as part of revisiting as end of year/final exam review.

We are passionate about teaching with questioning and discussion! However, this may not be for everyone. Please note: this supplement may NOT be ideal if:

• you are wanting a traditional slideshow of information (this is definitely not that)

• the content on our free DNA Replication video on YouTube is not sufficient (this is based on this content)

• you do not have access to YouTube in your classroom (viewing the short, free video clip on YouTube is recommended before students complete annotated script template)

• you cannot open zip files (this is all in one zip file)

What this Unlectured Series is Designed to Do

• Provide information in an engaging, question format. While designed to be the first time students have seen the topic, these can additionally be used for end of year reviewing as well.

• Encourage active student discussion of topics through questioning.

• Emphasize the importance of “why this content is important?” and “how is this useful in our world?"

• Use comics/cartoons that are relevant to students (and sometimes humorous) so that they are memorable.

• Be versatile! The Unlectured slideshow can be placed in a variety of digital tools. (Tool is not the focus)

What’s Included in Zip Folder

• Annotated Video Script TEMPLATE for DNA Replication (including 2 versions of this template: one for the old video and one for the updated. The templates are very similar but the newer version has a bit about topoisomerse)

• Unlectured Slideshow for DNA Replication (While it is in the format of a PowerPoint, it can be placed in other tools. Slideshow questions/images are NOT designed to be editable so that it can be used in other tools without formatting issues- however, you can always choose to add on if desired. Note: some minor features such as spinner/linked table of contents may not work in other tools)

• Freebie Unanswered Question Template, Number Spinner

• Facilitation Guide

What You’ll Need

• Access to YouTube (to correspond to our free video) for either you to show the short clip to students or students to view individually

• Highlighters or Colored Pencils for annotation on the Annotated Video Script Template

• A classroom environment where students feel safe and empowered to discuss topics where students may do more of the talking than the teacher. There is an optional "create" activity at the end of all of our topics, which will at minimum require paper---or you can also choose to use a tech tool if preferred.
