A Journal of The Cell

From Mrs. Mazen...

Throughout the first semester, our class has examined the various structures and functions of the cell. As a culminating experience, students were asked to compose a magazine with the following: a feature article about how science has affected their life, the use of technology in cell research, abstracts on labs performed relating to the study of the cell, an essay about a famous scientist, DNA replication centerfold, and advertisements about cells.

The format that their collection of information follows is that of a scientific journal. Each student acts as the writer, artist, editor, and publisher. The journal allows the students an outlet to show creativity, express opinions, and even some humor. This is one of my favorite assignments because it allows me to see each student's individual personality.

Plan Ahead...

Next month, some of the students will share their cell journals online.
