Today we will be discussing Chapters 1-2 of OPF. You will have an in-class group assignment. Your group today -- and throughout this unit -- will be your biotech research group.
1. Download this set of discussion questions: Chapters 1-2 (DOC)
2. Your group will be responsible for answering the two questions that correspond to your group number and defining the one vocabulary term that corresponds to your group number. You will have approximately 15 minutes to formulate your responses, which you will record on your eWorksheet.
3. In addition, you will also formulate one analytical question raised by the questions you answered or the responses you gave. This should be a question that can potentially generate class discussion.
3. Your group will then present your responses to the class -- for discussion. Your presentation is worth 15 points.
For next class -- Tues. (A4), Wed. (A2)
Your second reading assignment is Chapters 3-4. Be prepared for a quiz on this material.
