Transcription - DNA Replication - A Senior Biology PowerPoint Lesson & Notes
Product Description
Transcription - This 22 slide Senior Biology PowerPoint Lesson package looks at DNA replication, the first part of protein synthesis, Transcription. Specifically, it describes the One gene – One polypeptide hypothesis, DNA vs. RNA, the three types of RNA, the process of Transcription (Initiation --> Elongation --> Termination) and Post transcriptional Modifications. It is geared towards a senior level biology and/or an AP biology classroom. The PowerPoint contains many diagrams, explanations and videos. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the Power Point), 2 embedded videos and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.

Included in the lesson package is:

- The teacher version of the PowerPoint
- The student version of the PowerPoint
- 2 videos embedded into the PowerPoint
- Student lesson handout

In order, the lesson covers:
- One gene – One polypeptide Hypothesis
- DNA vs. RNA
- Three types of RNA
- Transcription (Initiation, Elongation and Termination)
- Post transcriptional Modifications

Within my Molecular Genetics Unit you can also find the following lessons
- Lesson 1 - Genetic Material - DNA and RNA
- Lesson 2 - DNA Replication and Repair
- Lesson 3 - DNA Organization and Aging
- Lesson 4 - Transcription - DNA Replication
- Lesson 5 - Translation - Protein Synthesis
- Lesson 6 - Mutations and Mutagens
- Lesson 7 - Viruses in Bio Technology
- Lesson 8 - DNA Manipulation
- Lesson 9 - PCR and Gel Electrophoresis
- Lesson 10 - Biotechnology and Health

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
