Do Now Read ‘Is Depression in Your DNA?’ Answer the question. Cite evidence from the text to support your answer.
Scientific Method Reading Read ‘Army Blew Up Donated Bodies’ NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (AP) – Seven cadavers donated to Tulane University’s medical school were sold to the Army and blown up in land mine experiments, officials said Wednesday. Tulane said it has suspended dealings with a national distributor of donated bodies. Tulane receives up to 150 cadavers a year from donors but needs only between 40 and 45 for classes, said Mary Bitner Anderson, co- director of the Tulane School of Medicine’s Willed Body Program. The university paid National Anatomical Service, a New York-based company that distributes bodies nationwide, less than $1,000 a body to deliver surplus cadavers, thinking they were going to medical schools in need of corpses. Answer – Is this an appropriate use of these cadavers?
Scientific Method Reading Discuss the appropriateness of the use of donated bodies by the Army. Cite evidence to support answers. Create an experiment to test new boots to be used in Afghanistan. Discuss science versus ethics.
Organic Chemistry Read ‘Obesity expert: Sugar is toxic and should be regulated’ and ‘Are Fructose Fears Unfounded’. Answer – Are sugars like fructose “toxic”? Support your answer with evidence from the text.
Organic Chemistry What causes Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, etc.? – Overconsumption MIGHT What can someone do to lose weight? – Reduce calories, increase exercise (burning calories) Specifically, what should we avoid when trying to lose weight? – Soft drinks Should you avoid fruit in your diet? – Support answers Sugars are in what class of organic compounds? What are uses/functions of sugars?
Cell Theory Do Now: Actively read ‘Early Observations on the Cell’, Biological Challenges – Discoveries: The Cell Theory’, and ‘Cell Structure and Function: Animalcules and Cells Fill’d With Juices’.
Cell Theory Cell Theory: Students will read ‘Early Observations on the Cell’, Biological Challenges – Discoveries: The Cell Theory’, and ‘Cell Structure and Function: Animalcules and Cells Fill’d With Juices’. After reading the articles, students will re-read the articles to identify the scientists who contributed to the cell theory. Then, students will create a timeline for these scientists (scientists and when their work was completed). Students will next re-read to identify the major contributions each scientist made. Students will then re-read the articles to identify the major tenents of the cell theory. Students will then match the scientists with their contributions to the cell theory
Cell Structure and Function Do Now: Read pp. 544-545 in your textbook and answer ‘Are viruses cells? Why or why not?’ Cite evidence from the text to support your answer. The previous day Characteristics of All Living Things – Students were expected to incorporate these characteristics into their answers. Cell Structure and Function: Students will read a collection of texts (possibly the textbook) to identify structure and function of selected cell organelles and structures. After reading, students were to identify 18 cell structures. Then, students had to identify the functions of those 18 structures. Cell City Analogy – students will create a “map” of a city relating selected cell parts to various entities within a city.
Cellular Transport Standards: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the structure and function of cells and their organelles Objectives: Explain how active, passive, and facilitated transports serve to maintain the homeostasis of the cell. Process: Do Now: Read ‘ Wreck of the Whaleship Essex’ (pp.1-3). Would you get on a ship with Owen Chase? Cite evidence from the text to support your answer. THEN, continue to actively read the rest of the pages. Cellular Transport: Discuss the ‘Wreck of the Whaleship Essex’ – Would you get on a ship with Owen Chase? Cite evidence from the text to support your answer.
Cellular Transport Cellular Transport: Discuss the ‘Wreck of the Whaleship Essex’ – Would you get on a ship with Owen Chase? Cite evidence from the text to support your answer. – Why did I really have you read this essay? (Can you drink saltwater? Why not? – RELATE to hypertonic, isotonic, and hypotonic solutions)
