Movie Mitosis
Bogiages, Christopher; Hitt, Austin M.
Science Teacher, v75 n9 p36-43 Dec 2008
Mitosis and meiosis are essential for the growth, development, and reproduction of organisms. Because these processes are essential to life, both are emphasized in biology texts, state standards, and the National Science Education Standards. In this article, the authors present their methodology for teaching mitosis by having students produce stop-animation films. They have found that this approach is equally effective for teaching students about meiosis as well. (Contains 3 figures.)
