Androgen sensitivity disorder or testicular feminization is the result of a genetic code that results in deficient receptor protiens. Sex-linked traits, cultural norms, emigration, human embrionic development, hormones, endocrine and reproduction are discussed within the reading and assigned tasks. As an extension, students are asked to make inferences at an intrapersonal level.

Supports Common Core Standards. To be completed over 3 days,if doing the writing extension.
