Learning Objectives<br />To learn a new revision technique<br />To practice summarising your learning<br />Outcomes<br />To produce flash cards on a particular given topic<br />
What is a chromosome?<br />In which part of a cell are chromosomes found?<br />A chromosome is a long length of DNA that carries lots of genes<br />What is a gene?<br />A gene is the basic unit of inheritance and controls what an organism is like.<br />Chromosomes are found in the nucleus of a cell<br />How many chromosomes do we have in our body cells?<br />Genes <br />What is a clone?<br />Human beings have 46 chromosomes in their body cells<br />A clone is a genetically identical copy of an organism<br />How many chromosomes do we get from each parent?<br />A recessive gene is the “weaker” gene. It will not express itself when a dominant allele is present.<br />What is a recessive gene?<br />We get 23 chromosomes from each parent<br />What is a dominant gene?<br />A dominant gene (allele) is the one that expresses itself in an organism. It is the more “powerful” allele<br />
What are flash cards?<br />A card containing key points about a particular topic, issue, subject etc.<br />
What do flash cards include?<br /><ul><li>Subject/topic on one side
Diagrams</li></li></ul><li>Why are flash cards useful?<br />The brain works better with bite-sized chunks of information<br />Force you to break down your knowledge and learning into key points<br />They are easily organised<br />Once created, they are time-savers<br />Useful tool when revising in groups<br />
Task – Create a set of flash cards on a topic from Genetics & Cloning<br />Use the resources provided to find the information you need about your topic<br />Read, then summarise that information<br />Create flash cards about your topic<br />You have 20 minutes to complete this task<br />
Example: create a set of flash-cards on the topic of Huntington’s Disease<br />Your flash-cards might include information, in relation to your specific topic, about the following:<br />Causes<br />Symptoms<br />Types of gene<br />Genetic cross<br />Embryo testing, particularly including ethical issues<br />You may be able to create a flash card that includes all of these issues, or choose a number of them to concentrate on<br />
Share with the group<br />Circulate around each table to see what other groups have produced<br />
