Gene Technology


Created by Bethany Snyder


Grade Level/Subject/Topic: 10th Biology/Gene Technology




Standards Addressed:


3.1.10.B4:

Explain how
genetic technologies

have impacted the fields of medicine,
forensics
, and agriculture.


Essential Unit Questions
:

How is
the hereditary information in genes inherited and expressed? (students should be
able to answer this before this series of lessons)


How do various areas of technology influence the economy, the environment, and
society?


Objectives:



Know
(Facts/Vocabulary):




Definitions for gene technology, genetic engineering, cloning, vector, ethics,
gene therapy, forensics, genetically modified crops, designer babies, etc. (based
on chosen project topic(s))



2
-
3 ways gene technology has directly affecte
d medicine, agriculture, and
forensics


Understand (Big Ideas):




The impact of gene technology on the fields of medicine, agriculture, and
forensics



With scientific developments comes controversy and ethical concerns



Do (Specific Skills student is able t
o do after the lesson):





Make and defend a scientific argument using at least three pieces of evidence for
or against various genetic technologies in a written essay.



Use glogster to create effective and interactive way to present information



Collaborate

using class wiki page.



Materials/Supplies:





Smartboard
, Smart Genetic Technology Smart Notebook


Computers with internet access

have)

Procedures/Activities
:


Bellringer: Video: My Sisters Keeper Clip (mild controversy for engagement)

shown

Focus Ques
tion: Based on the clip and your knowledge of genetics, come up with a
working definition of genetic engineering


-
Discuss Defin
itions of Genetic Engineering, ask students to form hypotheses about how
the girl in the clip was “genetically engineered”

(lead into discussion of selective breeding and have students review knowledge of
punnett squares by predicting the probability the sister would be a match given
circumstances, then discuss other ways the a sibling could be genetically designed to
match a
nother)

(*see
Gene Technology Notebook File)


Assessment: Students will work in small groups to research (using Science Research
Form *see attached) a specific topic in gene technology. They may choose one from the
list on the assignment sheet entitled Genetic Engineering Project (*see attached), or

they
may seek approval for another related topic. Once topic is selected, students will upload
their selections to
https://spreadsheets0.google
.com/spreadsheet/ccc?hl=en_US&key=t32zhF0Yb5oecbx6eg
asS6Q&hl=en_US#

to ensure no two groups are using the same topic.

Students will be given 2 days to research and create a glog which includes pictures, links,
a glossary etc. as listed on the
Genetic Engin
eering Project (*see attached)
. This project
serves to introduce students to the technology, how it works, important terms, and pros
and cons.


Teacher will provide informal feedback as students are working on their glogs and once
approved the glogs wil
l be linked in the Gene Technology Project page of the
jbadvancedbiologywiki where they can be viewed by classmates.


Students will view each groups glog and compare and contrast the topic presented to their
own using the summar
izing note sheet (*see attac
hed). Students will hand these in to
receive formal feedback from the teacher and when handed back students will then have
1 week to complete a persuasive paper for or against a technology presented by another
group, using unbiased evidence to support the
ir argument.

Genetic Engineering Project


Project Overview


Humans have long altered the genes of organisms through selective breeding (e.g. cattle,
dogs, corn). Recently, however, advances in our understanding of DNA have enabled us to
modify organisms by directly altering the genes of these organisms, a techniqu
e called
genetic engineering. The rapid advances in genetic engineering have brought about great
possibilities for ways to combat world hunger, malnutrition, illness, and infertility. With
these advances, though, have come great ethical questions about h
ow much we should
manipulate DNA, or whether we should manipulate it at all. Your job is to choose one of
these genetic engineering topics that you would like to research. Topic ideas are listed
below. You are to use the information you find to formulat
e a solid argument for or against
the topic you have chosen. You will then create a poster in which you share this information
with your class. After all projects have been shared, you will write a reflective essay over a
classmate’s presentation about w
hich you have a different point of view.


Requirements

When creating your poster, you must have scientifically valid resources to back up your
claims (not wikipedia.org). You must have at least

one

print

source
(not Internet
; may be
textbook
), and at
least five sources overall. A research sheet

will be due when you turn in
your project.

Your poster should have an informative title, give an overview of the topic

detailing
opposing viewpoints
(written in a
respectful
way that
even
non
-
scientists
could

understand),
explain in detail at least three

scientifically valid

reasons to support your stance on your
issue,
explain three scientifically valid reasons opposing your stance, a conclusion explaining
your viewpoint and describing your reasoning behind yo
ur viewpoint.

Your poster should
also include

a glossary with at least five words defined
, have
at least one picture,

one video
or interactive game link, a neat appearance, and be
easy to read.


When writing your reflective essay, it must be
at least one

page long
. It should be 12 pt,
Times New Roman font, and double
-
spaced. This should include an accurate description of
the point of view of the presenter, and then clearly explain
your point of view
. You must
discuss, in detail, at least three reasons
f
or your stance on the issue.
These reasons need to be
well thought out, and must include supporting details and facts.
You may not write the
paper on your own topic.


You may choose to reflect on more than one topic if you choose.

Possible Topics

Genetically modified food

Genetically modified organisms for use in
medicines

Stem Cells

Cloning

Genetic enhancement “Designer babies”

Transgenic organisms

Gene therapy

Extending life due to genetic engineering

Recombinant DNA

Nature vs. Nurture

Gene Technology



You may choose a topic not listed here, but discuss it with your instructor first.
