From personal DNA analysis to modern medical advances to GMOs to RNAi and CRSPR - it's hard to keep up with advances in modern genetics. It's even harder to know what to teach and how to do it.
This lesson features an organizer for a Storify page used in a Biology class I teach. Storify is a media system for organizing online resources on topics of choice. This is a dynamic page, when changes as the stories covered continue to develop.
The Storify page organizes a series of current news reports, videos, interactive activities, articles, etc. regarding biotechnology. The organizer asks students to make choices as to which resources to explore, and then prompts them to make notes on each resource.
A Teachers Guide provided gives suggestions as to how students should use the organizer, as well as NGSS Correlations for the lesson.
