Producing Genetic Modified Organisms: Gene Splicing

Gene Splicing: AHS.13 : Identify Resources for Continued Growth (all,IA) (PDF) | (PPT)

Students discover positive characteristics of themselves through the SCANS assessments. Relate to choosing traits of organisms when splicing genes.

Gene Splicing: AHS.46 : Recruiting FFA Members (3) (PDF) | (PPT)

Engage students in a discussion on the traits that you want to add to an organism to make it better. What are those traits, why are they desirable, and how do we get that trait into the organism. Relate this to the types of students that need to be in FFA to make our Chapter better. What steps do we need to take to get these students.

Gene Splicing: HS.10 : Defining Core Values (all,IA,2) (PDF) | (PPT)

Correlate how selecting a specific gene in gene slicing and how it relates to personal values. Just as looking at selection of a specific gene show the relationship of how people tend to pick a specific value that someone has that people tend to judge someone on.
