Journal Article Review

by Jamie Lovitt

This assignment is designed to integrate literacy in the content area, combining research and writing practice with interesting science topics of the students' choosing. It is also designed to act as a catalyst for discussion about why journals are different from other types of writing, though I have allowed students to use high quality scientific magazines for articles to review. I require students to use a formal writing style for this project and go in-depth about what formal writing entails.

Mitosis flip book

by Jamie Lovitt

This is a very cool assignment that helps the students "see" the phases of mitosis (and the larger cell cycle). It is project based, which helps with classroom management! The essence of the flip book is that the students draw the changes happening very slowly on the different pages of the book, so that when the pages are flipped through, the Cell Cycle happens seamlessly! The students love it.
