This 5-page reading covers human genetics covered in 10th grade biology--sex linkage, pedigrees, blood typing, recessive disorders (Cystic Fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, PKU), a dominant disorder (Huntington's Disease), a co-domiant disorder (Sickle Cell Anemia), and sex linked disorders (Hemophilia and Muscular Dystrophy). The reading guide uses a balanced literacy model which allows students to take notes as they read and use critical thinking to analyze the inheritance patterns in terms of prior knowledge. It asks students to use the basic vocabulary covered in Genetics Vocabulary Practice and Assessment. A great follow up activity is Genetic Pattern Cut and Paste
