Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Epigenetics - Section 3: Explore Epigenome


Often when I teach this lesson students have several "at risk" answers, and they come to me to ask for guidance about how to modify their monster to show the risk. My answer to them is, "Decide whether your monster heeded the advice of health care practitioners and modified his/her habits.  It is not for me to decide, the responsibility lies on your shoulders." This simple interaction drives the point across that they have serious choices to make, and that they are in fact crafting their own future with their choices.
