APPROACHES TO TEACHING AND LEARNING IN CLASSROOMS

Thinking, Communication and Social Skills

Mrs. David's IB Biology HL Juniors made stop motion animation videos to demonstrate the phases of meiosis. Student groups were required to narrate and animate the movement of the chromosomes in going from a diploid germ cell to a haploid sex cell. Some groups were required to show how errors during meiosis, called non-disjunction, cause genetic disorders, such as Downs Syndrome. Click the links below to see some samples of the students' work.
