Students Conceptualizing Transcription and Translation from a Cellular Perspective
Concannon, James; Buzzetta, Maegan
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v47 n3 p83-88 2010
It is difficult for students to conceptualize biochemical processes that are portrayed as two-dimensional figures in a textbook. Instead of relying on overheads, PowerPoint, or textbook figures, the authors have students imagine themselves actually being inside a cell. Students have a specific role in the cell: helping with the transcription and translation process. (Contains 12 figures.)
