Before transitioning to Unit 4: DNA, we launched class with a short movie starring Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson which served to remind everyone why the study of science is so vital to our democracy:
Next, we followed up on the House A freshmen advisory meeting from last week in the gym (focusing on attendance, behavior, and grades) by reviewing specific sections of the syllabus .
Finally, we launched Unit 4 by reviewing the Unit 4 calendar and then holding a brief class discussion in which students shared out what they know (or think they know) already about DNA. Students then received a worksheet with questions that were answered by watching The Double Helix video. The completed worksheet will be turned in tomorrow.
