1. Central Dogma Lesson Plan Renee Hunt Lisa Coughlin

2. The Setting Mrs. Nunley’s 9th grade general biology class A computer lab at Lafayette High School SOL review of genetic unit previously taught incorporating visual representation

3. Objectives The student will be able to explain the differences between DNA and RNA The student will be able to construct a DNA molecule using nitrogen base pairing rules Given a sequence of DNA nucleotides the student will be able to transcribe it into a RNA strand Given a RNA sequence the student will be able to translate it into a protein

4. Materials A computer with internet access for each student System for projecting internet onto a TV screen Worksheet http://gslc.genetics.utah.edu/units/basics Click on build a DNA molecule. Build a molecule. Go back to previous page and click on”transcribe and translate a gene”. Scroll down and click “begin”. Go back to the previous page and scroll down to the “And Beyond…” section. Choose either “what makes a firefly glow?” or the “Mystery of the stolen artifacts?”. http://www.dnaftb.org/dnaftb Molecular Genetics #21

5. The Activity Explain online tutorial about DNA, RNA, and transcription to students as they follow along on the computer Review translation using PowerPoint presentation

6. Activity Cont’d Guide students through online activities When completed activities students further explored topics using real world examples

7. Assessment Questioning during review lecture Observed student progress as they were completing the activity Worksheet

8. Reflections The use of interactive activities enhanced student involvement in the learning process and therefore it was more enjoyable for them Giving adequate assistance to students having difficulties

9. Reflections Cont’d Importance of ensuring that students are on the right track Test every aspect of the technology before the lesson Always have a back up plan!
