From the people at the University of Utah who brought you the beautiful and informative site Learn.Genetics, the Teach.Genetics website proves to be just as visually appealing and useful. The website is very new (in its Beta preview as of this writing), so interested readers should continue to check in as the site grows. In the meantime, however, there is still plenty to explore. The Print-and-Go lesson plan index page is an excellent resource for educators, as it provides all-in-one lesson plans, student worksheets, and answer keys. The topics are varied and fall under categories such as “The new science of addition: genetics and the brain” and “Gene therapy: molecular bandage?” In addition to the lesson plan index, there are also materials for an entire unit on heredity, as well as teaching materials to supplement the “amazing cells” and “epigenetics” curricula from the sister Learn.Genetics website.
