Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Heart and Blood Disease - Flipped - Section 3: Explore


I especially like using the sickle cell anemia website because of its strong connection to our previous studies in genetics. Using this website helps students understand the purpose and benefit of Punnett squares and serves as a good review of the information studied in the genetics unit. The students were also very proud of themselves because they remembered how to complete the Punnett squares and determine percentages. I was proud of the fact that some of the students were so familiar with Punnett squares that they were able to determine percentages automatically without completing the square.
