PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you're a Life Science, English/Language Arts, or Social Studies whose students are learning about cells, scientific research or African American history, look no further than this resource. This lesson plan and resources are a great starting point for teaching about cells, PARCC-style research writing, and informed consent.

It is a dual text lesson plan based on the story of Henrietta Lacks, the black woman whose cervical tissue cells were removed without permission, leading to numerous medical advances. This resource contains the lesson plan, as I taught it to my 7th graders in a Title 1 middle school in D.C. The resources I used, including a link to a great video, two articles, and a R.A.C.E.S. graphic organizer to help students write about the topic, are also included.
