Product Description
During this tutorial, students will click their way through animations, review question, and various diagrams to illustrate/animate the process of transcription in a unique and easy to follow manner.

Students will begin with an introduction to DNA and genes. They will progress their way through the process of transcription, onto a section where they must perform transcription, and culminate with a review quiz to check for understanding.

From the student point of view, this sure beats a 30 minute lecture as it is much more engaging. From the teacher point of view, this beats a 30 minute lecture as it allows the students to be engaged with the process of transcription. This is not a simple PowerPoint presentation where students are shown bullet point main ideas. This PowerPoint is full of creative animations and probing questions that require a student generated answer in order to proceed.

I use these interactive tutorials as a way to introduce or reinforce the topic in question. I have found these tutorials to be very helpful as they allow the students to work at their own pace, go back to an early topic, or move forward. These tutorials were created with Microsoft Power Point 2003, but they are compatible with the newer 2007 version. Since this is a PowerPoint, you don't have to worry about installing unfamiliar software such as Flash and Macromedia. If you do not have PowerPoint, Microsoft has a program called "PowerPoint viewer" that allows you to view a PowerPoint for free. You can download this program from Microsoft's website.

Once you download the paid version, feel free to make multiple copies to use with your students. I burned a class set of CDs to use in my classroom. When we go to the computer lab to work on this tutorial, I simply pass out 1 CD to each student and they can then work at their own pace. I recollect the CDs when finished.
