Would you want to know if you have a genetic disease? With this genetic testing article response, students will consider the pros and cons and defend their decision with evidence from the text. Even if your curriculum is packed, you can find time to include literacy and current issues in science with this fun activity!
After reading an article about genetic testing (available at four different lexile levels) and filling out a graphic organizer with pros and cons, students will write an informed opinion and share it with their peers. Clear, easy to follow teacher directions are included with ideas for sharing between partners with opposing view points.
