Great Transformations

Today (or tomorrow for G period) students watched PBS's Great Transformations episode from the Evolution series.

C period: Finish watching the video below (begin at minute 42).  Tomorrow C period will have a Harkness style discussion.  If you do not have Mr. Locke or Mr. Dibbert, you may not be familiar with Harkness discussion.  Here is a short guide of what to expect.

The opening discussion question will be:

"Evolution is also called the "unifying theory of biology". What does this mean? Why do biologists find it nearly impossible to understand biology without understanding evolution."

You should come prepared with notes on what you saw in the video, your notes on evolution thus far as well as five discussion questions to ask the class.
