Grade 9 Biology Honors Students showcase presentations on Genetics

Grade 9 Biology Honors students take time this week to showcase their learning through student-produced and curated presentations about genetics. Using knowledge they have learned throughout the year, students are delivering presentations on a variety of topics including thalassemia, autism, sickle cell disease, Bloom syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, gene therapy, and more. 

 

As a high school that values future-focused skill development, this project and the associated presentations teach students the value of using research in conjunction with their own knowledge they have acquired. Additionally, because these presentations are conducted in small groups, students had to develop refined collaboration skills as well as presentation skills. Certainly, their presentations and the ways that they communicate their ideas to their classmates and audiences are important to their overall success. ~ Dr. Leslie Williams, High School Director
