Cell Cycle Planning Unit
Cell Cycle can be a very abstract and difficult section of Biology to learn. The goal here is to use constant reinforcement with students and allow for open communication between teachers and students for help and discussion. Students will be asked not only to identify and the steps in the cell cycle for somatic cells and gametes, they will be asked to create hypothetical situations to “stump” other students. The class will also have a focused discussion of cellular regulations and their role in helping the body run smoothly. Allow the students to be loud, argumentative, and competitive, it will make this unit much more fun for all involved parties while navigating correct online and debate etiquette!
