Reflection: Real World Applications Cell Poetry Cafe (Day 2 of 2) - Section 4: Independent Practice: Organelle Self-Portraits


This video clip provides the reflection on today's lesson where the students took the spotlight and showcased their creative writing, public speaking, and mastery of cellular biology.  This lesson was a huge success and the students have already requested that we use the same format in future units of study.  The success of this lesson proves that when you take a leap of faith and go outside of your comfort zone, you may find true success that would otherwise remained out of reach!

Objective: SWBAT describe the structure and function of their assigned cell organelle through the presentation of their personification poem and self-portrait masterpiece. Students will also develop narratives to visualize how the individual parts work as a whole to sustain the cell's life.

Big Idea: Students' creative writing will take center stage while the lights are dimmed and the poetry passion heats up! Cell organelles have never been so entertaining!
