Title:  Crossing Over: TN Common Core & Active Learning Lessons in Heredity for Biology I

Date:  June 2-3, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Location:  Fairview Building, Learning Laboratory Room 202

Abstract:  This Biology I workshop will focus on challenging topics of the Heredity Strand in the End-of-Course Exam. In addition, the topic of heredity lends itself to integration with ELA/Literacy Common Core Standards through reading and writing tasks that include reading primary literature. The K-12 Science Framework will be introduced to participants through activity lessons that are identified as research-based practices in science education. Topics will focus on meiosis, chromosomal genetics, pedigrees, DNA function, mutations, and biotechnology.
