I designed this 6+ day unit for my 11th/12th grade Anatomy & Physiology students (not AP Biology students). To understand the content covered, please view the preview file. I have also included 2 extra days of action potential resources, including a story-book style lesson simplifying the complicated subject. The main resources in this bundle are a unit schedule, 16 page teacher script packed full of memory hooks, demonstrations, and anecdotes, a 195 slide PowerPoint, student notes (the preview), student fill-in-the-blank notes, a lesson on neuroplasticity and choosing your words wisely, a review game, a study guide and key, and two versions of a test/key. Enjoy!
Note: I do NOT put the notes on the PowerPoint for any of my units. Instead students are required to fill the notes in as we talk, which fosters student independence and active learning.
