Instructional Ideas

  • Between each segment (structures of DNA/RNA, replication, central dogma, and genetic engineering), pause the video to allow scholars to take notes, ask questions, and process the information as a class
  • Use this video to supplement unit on genetics
Classroom Considerations

  • Classroom should have a computer, access to the Internet, and a projection system
  • Video assumes scholars understand base pairs
  • The video is part two of the instructor's DNA and RNA videos
  • Eighth video in a series of 31
Pros

  • Includes a link to a concept map, slideshow, and a review worksheet
  • Great visuals of transcription and translation
Cons

  • None
