NEA - Using HHMI BioInteractive Resources and the Science Practices to Support Student Understanding of Molecular and Classical Genetics

During this workshop, we’ll explore free HHMI BioInteractive resources as part of a lesson sequence focused on helping students understand the relationship between molecular biology and classical genetics by exploring genetic diseases. Using best practices, we will demonstrate how three-dimensional phenomenon-driven instruction makes student thinking and learning visible. Along the way, we’ll engage with several science practices including modeling, analyzing data, and constructing explanations as we model classroom implementation strategies to help students build mastery of genetics, and to prepare for the ATLAS biology assessment.

Workshop participants will also engage as practitioners to reflect on how to incorporate and adapt resources and strategies shared in the workshop into their classes to deepen student understanding of how the inheritance of traits is the result of the mechanism of gene expression.

This workshop is for teachers who teach any level of high school biology (introductory, AP/IB, etc.). Middle school teachers, particularly 8th grade life science teachers, are also welcome to attend. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
