Want your high school students to have better note-taking skills? Cornell notes are a great training tool for your students and they fit perfectly into interactive notebooks or binders. This huge digital note set and three presentations provide all the notes you'll need for a unit on DNA and protein synthesis including DNA structure, DNA replication, RNA, transcription, and translation. The pages are set in Google slides for students to type and edit in 1:1 classes.

What's included:

  • 18 EDITABLE Google Slides on DNA structure and replication
  • 9 EDITABLE Google Slides on RNA and transcription
  • 14 EDITABLE Google Slides on translation
  • 4 digital Cornell Notes pages (students type on digital pages)
  • 2 digital Interactive Notebook pages

How can I use this in a virtual learning environment?

The PowerPoint coordinates seamlessly with the note pages. Notes can be taken on a device while viewing the PowerPoint to introduce or reinforce content.

Topics include: DNA structure, nucleotide structure, double helix shape, scientists (Chargaff, Franklin, Watson and Crick), genes, chromosomes, histones, DNA replication, base pairing rules, semiconservative replication, Meselson and Stahl experiment, RNA structure, mRNA, tRNA, rRNA, transcription, codons, introns and exons, ribosomes, anticodons, amino acids, translation, polypeptide chains

*This resource is a digital note-taking method for 1:1 classrooms that use Google Apps. If you do not have Google Classroom or do not use digital note-taking methods, you will want a traditional version of these notes.

What are Cornell notes?

Cornell notes consist of 1 page separated into 3 sections. A left-hand column provides major ideas and essential questions, while the large right-hand section is for detailed notes. A third section is found at the bottom of the page for summarizing the notes.

Why should you use the Cornell note-taking method?

Cornell notes are organized and efficient. They help students easily pick out the important ideas for any topic. They also make studying easier because students can use the left column of questions as a self quiz.

Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells. Assessment does not include identification of specific cell or tissue types, whole body systems, specific protein structures and functions, or the biochemistry of protein synthesis.
Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring. Assessment does not include the phases of meiosis or the biochemical mechanism of specific steps in the process.
