Trying to make genetics meaningful to my students can often be challenging. This past summer, I discovered the book "Mercies in Disguise," a true story of a South Carolina family's struggle with a rare and deadly inherited disease. The book not only brings science to life, but holds deep ethical questions for students to ponder and discuss in the classroom. I want my students to become scientifically literate so they are able to understand what is going on in the world around them and hopefully enjoy reading in the process. This set of books will remain in the classroom to serve multiple classes and to ensure that each student has an opportunity to read. During our DNA and Genetics related units, students will be given time at the beginning of class to read. Chapter questions will be provided to help guide daily reading, promote critical thinking, and promote lively classroom discussions. The reading project will culminate with a hands-on lab investigation with a mobile genetics laboratory. With the help of your donations my students will gain a perspective on why science is important outside of the classroom and how it can changes lives.
