Marking period 3
This marking period we are examining the ethical issues surrounding cell research and the human body. We are reading a variety of texts that discuss the ethics of studying the human body, selling tissue, etc. This topic has generated a great deal of discussion and some incredible topics that involve a higher level of thinking. In addition, each student is responsible for a 2 to 3 page research paper which will also include a cover and citation page. The student's are able to pick a topic that interest them that also involves the human body and medical conditions. The project will be completed in a step by step process which allows each student to work at their own pace. Also each student will have individual conferences with me so that I can monitor their progress and make sure they are successfully completing their research. We are very busy and spending a great deal of time researching and writing. This is a very exciting time for the students as they work diligently on a number of higher critical thinking skills. As always please feel free to contact me at anytime.
