  This week we start looking into the nuts and bolts of DNA and what it is all made of. We have a strawberry DNA extraction lab on Monday and continue with DNA replication and lots of practice/activities.

   I am going to start doing non-graded quizzes with the end result focusing on the parts of content students are comprehending yet. We will go over the answers as a class and have quite a bit of discussion. I am hoping this will lend the students will retain information better and not just memorize for the test and forget. We will have our first one on Friday as a take home assignment. 

Our week (approx.):
Tuesday 13th: Strawberry DNA extraction lab
Wednesday 14th: DNA notes and practice drawing DNA
Thursday 15th: DNA replication notes, practice and poster project
Friday 16th: DNA taping activity and a Non-Graded DNA Quiz for take home
