Tuesday, March 20 Assignment

Today’s assignment has two parts, each described below. You should complete them working with a partner. A partner is one other person in the class. This does not mean you should mess around for an hour and then copy something from someone in another group.

  1. Read this case study here, on the ethics of taking a genetic test. (You may have heard something about this gene a few years ago when Angelina Jolie had a preventative double mastectomy after finding she had a copy of this gene.) At the end of the case study there is information presented about the perspectives of 5 different people. You are to pick 3 of these people and write a letter to Kathy from each of those three people’s perspective (as if you were that person). Each of your three letters should at least address these three questions:
    • Would you encourage Kathy to get the test? Why or why not?
    • What other advice would you give Kathy?
    • How might these decisions affect Kathy cognitively, psychologically, emotionally?

2. Make a photosynthesis and Respiration Poster using either Google Sheets or Powerpoint. Follow these instructions below, making sure you include all 14 of the words listed:

A sample of the type of picture you might come up with (minus all the color and creativity I’m sure you’ll include) is below:
