The following are the objectives for the two week unit on genetic and heredity:
1. Describe the results of Mendel's experiment
2. Identify the role of alleles in controlling the inheritance of traits
3. Define probability and describe how it helps explain the results of genetic crosses
4. Explain the relationship between genotype and phenotype/heterozygous and homozygous
5. Describe complex patterns of inheritance (incomplete/co-dominance/multiple alleles/polygenic)
6. Describe how genes interact with the environment
7. Distinguish between acquired and inherited traits
8. Explain why chromosomes in body cells exist in pairs
What is your job title and description?
What are your job duties?
How do genetics and heredity relate to your field? Do you use this information on a daily basis?
What are the most interesting things about your career?
This tends to be a lesson in which the students are highly engaged. Along with gaining a deeper understanding of the material, I would like for them to understand the importance of these topics in their personal lives as well as in possible future career endeavors. Generally, students only relate these topics to the broad medical field including doctors and nurses. It would be great for them to understand that genetics is involved in a diverse set of careers.
Leaving honest feedback and rating gives members a good idea of what to expect when dealing with other members. Leaving Feedback is also a way to express your appreciation for a session well done.

Why we record sessions?
We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
