Reviewer Comments:

These materials were created by Teach for America teachers and alumni as part of a unit for High School Developing Biology. These resources would also be suitable for grades 6 – 8 Life Science classes. The lessons include a series of PowerPoint presentations. This first one, a school – cell analogy, would require some modification by the user since the names are specific to the contributor’s school. The images are good, but the sound transitions are a little dramatic. There is also a well-organized worksheet that goes with the PowerPoint that asks students to record each cell part’s function, location, sketch, and analogy. The project “edible cell” includes an organizer and assessment checklist. All of these resources are great starting points, but the CRS feels the pedagogy could be more developed. The worksheet and project would benefit from some objectives and an answer key.

It is a very nice presentation. It can give elaborate view about the cell. I really appriciate the effort of the creator. TVRK
