Standards for Grade(s): 9-12

Biology/Life Sciences

This presentation focuses on how to integrate current scientific research on diseases into the California State Standards in Biology for grades 9-12. Learn how small group research projects can make the study of cells, genetics, microbiology, and human physiology more relevant to the students' lives. The projects are organized to guide students to self-manage their research, delegate tasks within the group, improve literacy skills by using Directed Reading Thinking (SDAIE) Activities to read scientific articles, self-evaluate progress using a grading rubric, and evaluate peer projects.
