Here is our success criteria! This is what we decided would make a successful enquiry into how plants move (tropism). I will edit our fantastic ideas into a word document and post it on here. This will be downloadable and fully editable by yourselves. If you see something on it that you don’t like or you think you could improve please do so and bring it to the next lesson! A special star prize to anyone who re-works the success criteria.
Why do I want you to do this?
I want you to take ownership of your learning. My idea is that you will be more interested in the topic and more likely to develop a deeper understanding of it. Here’s some food for thought – this is kind of where we’re going with this project. Looks fun or not? Think it will help you to learn? Leave me some feedback by commenting.
Just imagine what the world would be like if we allowed human cloning to take place. Many say that it has already done so and that human cloning’s widespread use in inevitable. In this series of lessons I aim to get 11-2 thinking about the possible future consequences of decisions the scientific community makes today.
The imagine project aims to get you thinking creatively about science and exploring the big debates that matter today. Human cloning is possibly one of the most contentious issues our species has ever been faced with. Check out the debate for yourself.
We are going to carry out a series of 4 ‘explorations’ into human cloning, starting first with a look at the technology that has allowed us to think realistically for the first time ever about the possibility of producing cloned human beings.
On Tuesday 27 November 2012 I want you to answer these questions:
We’ve already looked at the possibility that a human clone could have been made already. In Wednesday’s lesson we’ll look critically at this claim and assess the evidence available about whether it’s true or not.
Thursday will see us draw together the strands of the debate and try to suggest further routes to explore during Friday’s lesson when we’ll conclude our look at this most divisive and important issue facing the future of our species.
Welcome to your Biology GCSE resource hub. This website will support you with your studies as you prepare for your Biology GCSE exams. It is aimed to be a self study tool. Use it to prepare for lessons by reading the lesson content before the day of the lesson or to review the topics we covered in a lesson. It is hoped that this site will help to give you a deeper understanding of the topics you’re being taught and allow you to explore them at your own pace.
