With the short period today, we reviewed how to identify credible scientific sources and how to properly cite those sources using APA format. Students were introduced to the website Citation Machine which helps extract key citation information from websites and helps quickly build citations. For the project, teams must cite a minimum of 5 credible scientific sources. Because of the technological challenges faced during the Chromosome Project, student groups received a paper copy of a document prompting them to save sources.
Students worked the remainder of the class period to properly cite previously identified sources and continued making progress on Mitosis Projects, providing me with time to check in with each group to see how the projects are progressing and to ensure students have what they need to continue moving forward.
