Product Description
In this non-fiction reading, students learn what genetic diseases are and what causes them. An open-response prompt asks students to use evidence from the task to decide what qualifications people who counsel couples about genetic diseases (genetic counselors) should have. This reading helps teachers "kill two birds with one stone" - help students acquire content knowledge while they practice the important skill of making a claim and defending it using evidence and reasoning. Grade-8 level reading.
