Summary Online Learning Experience
This hybrid course on genetics is structured into four modules and is focused on
ensuring that students recognize how biological traits are passed on to successive
generations. As well as, explaining the role of genes and chromosomes in the process of
inheriting specic traits. These are the Georgia standards that will be the focus of the
course. The learning outcomes for each module are as follows in the table below.
Module 1
Structure and Function
of DNA
Module2
Transcription
and Translation
Module 3
Genetic
Mutations
Module 4
Mendels Law

the structure of
DNA.
Explain the
relationship
between DNA,
genes, and
proteins.
Explain the
relationship
between traits and
heredity.
Explain how genes
and alleles are
related to genotype
and phenotype.
Describe the basic
structure of a
DNA molecule.
Outline the basic
steps in making
a protein.
Describe the
experiments of
Gregor Mendel.
Use the information
in a Punnett
square.
Explain how DNA
molecules can
be copied.
Describe three
types of
mutations, and
provide an
example of a
gene mutation.
Explain the
difference between
dominant and
recessive traits.
Explain how
probability can be
used to predict
possible genotypes
in offspring.
Describe two
examples of uses of
genetic knowledge.
Describe three

SUMMARY ONLINE LEARNING EXPERIENCE 3
This class is unique in make up because the school is an international school and is
made up of serval nations from around the world. The class is made up of 10# ESL student
who receive services and are at the high level of ESL at levels 4 and 5. There are also many
other students that speak English as a second language but do not need services. There are
an equal number of male and female students represented in this class. Two students have an
IEP due to a learning disability.
The assessments used in this course will show student growth and mastery of the
standards. There is a combination of formative and summative assessments. The
instructions can be di$erentiated to engage visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. To
accommodate the students with special needs the assignments can be modied in length.
Accommodations can also be made using assistive technology. Students also have access to
supplemental material that helps to support student learning. The students with special
needs will also have a special education aid available to assist them when needed while they
are in the classroom. The course pages, headlines and titles will be able to be read using a
screen reader. The images that contain content will be provided with alternative text. The
contrast of the content will be appropriate and easily legible. Users will be able to enlarge
the text if necessary. Any Audio will have a visual alternative.
