Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Cell processes

Of all the things I teach my students, they seem to loose the most interest in cell processes (mitosis, meiosis, photosynthesis etc.) I am trying to make it as much fun as I can and try to incorporate all types of real life experiences, but its like pulling teeth. I assigned students to create a depiction of the cell cycle and almost every student turned in a project that was copied straight from the book. I don’t know how to get students to stop plagarizing. Plagarism is so wide spread throughout our school that I don’t know how to approach it in my classroom. I want to focus on the science, but it is so tempting to get on a soap box about plagarism.
