Instructional Ideas

  • Present the slideshow on day one of meiosis instruction
  • Biology learners may take notes during presentation; an alternative for a more diversified approach could be to have students construct vocabulary flashcards throughout 
 
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires Internet access to view the tutorial listed on slide 19; consider scheduling class time in the computer lab or library if students do not have access to the Internet usage outside of school 
  • Presentation contains appropriate vocabulary items needed for beginning-level biology students to grasp the concept of meiosis
Pros

  • The presentation provides a solid foundation for the meiosis concepts required in high school biology
  • Embedded videos add interest and help to round out two key points within the slideshow content 
Cons

  • The link did not open on the page from launch and would not open in a separate window; instructors may need to copy and paste the link into their browser of choice to open it
