Lesson Plans

The teacher plays a critical role in facilitating successful use of Geniverse by students; it is not designed to be a stand-alone activity. In many respects, Geniverse is more like a game than a typical genetics simulation. Depending on one’s intended use of the program and on one’s familiarity and comfort using games in the classroom, this may require a new approach. See Teaching with a Game for more information.

We provide these lesson plans to assist you with implementing each Case in Geniverse. They are based on the BSCS 5E Instructional Model, often completing the cycle across multiple lessons. They are best used in conjunction with the Teacher Guides. Each includes an assortment of handouts to support the work students will be doing, and some include assessments.   For a quick summary of each Case, check out Lessons in a Nutshell.
