Grading Sheet for the Blog Project


Section I: Personal Bio and Material


I live in Franklin Township, I'm sixteen years old, and I like to spend time with my friends, talk, volunteer, dance (sometimes), and do anything food or gymnastics related.  Most of the time I like to think I know what I'm talking about, even though most of the time I'm probably wrong.  I also tend to over analyze things. I'm a hard worker and pretty confident but as far as my future goes, I'm not entirely sure of what I want to be although I'm considering something in the medical or business field. 


Section II:  Interesting/Useful Scientific Material





   1. http://www.dnalc.org/resources/animations/ 


  • This website has good, easy to understand animations of the different processes of dna.


    2.  http://www.biologybinder.com/ 


  • This link provides helpful quizzes that help you label diagrams and assess how much you know about your topic (e.g. biochemistry, microscopes, evolution, and etc.)


    3. http://library.med.utah.edu/NetBiochem/macromol.htm 


  • Macromolecules are described in detail in this site.  It provides us a good idea of what macromolecules are and how they are classified (carbohydrates and nucleic acids and their different units, such as monomers). 


    4. http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/begin/dna/transcribe/ 


  • Colorful, interactive games are always a good way to help you learn and remember important concepts.  This website helps you understand the transcribing and translating of a DNA strand. 


    5.  http://anthro.palomar.edu/biobasis/bio_2.htm 


  • This site is dedicated to explaining cell reproduction, it includes diagrams, statistics, and a description of the cell reproduction process. 






  1. http://image.wistatutor.com/content/feed/u2077/cell_cycle%203.jpg 


  • This is a picture of the cell cycle.  It gives a short description of what happens in the G1, S, and G2 phases.  It is color coated and has arrows that make it easier to understand and read. 



     2. http://www.phschool.com/science/biology_place/labbench/lab3/images/stages1.gif 


  • The stages of Meiosis 1 are briefly summarized and illustrated so that most people can understand it. 


     3. http://www.ebi.ac.uk/microarray/biology_intro_files/cell.jpe 


  • A diagram of an animal cell is a picture that I referred to frequently during my first biology class, so I thought I'd put a labeled diagram up here as a reference just in case we needed it. 


     4. http://kvhs.nbed.nb.ca/gallant/biology/mitosis_phases.jpg 


  • This image shows the different stages of mitosis, it's useful because it accurately shows the different stages of mitosis in order, and it is labeled.  


     5. http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/plants/images/plantcell.jpg 



  • The plant cell is a very well known diagram because we learn a lot about the processes that occur in this cell.  I figured that it would be good to list this diagram as a reference because it's labelled and has pretty good illustrations. 





1. http://www.wiley.com/college/pratt/0471393878/student/animations/citric_acid_cycle/index.html 


  • This video depicts the citric acid cycle; its animations, labels, and narration helps you understand how the citric acid cycle works. 


     2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj_WKgnL6MI 


  • The process of photosynthesis is described in detail in this video to help you understand step by step the vital properties of photosynthesis. 


     3. http://www.science.smith.edu/departments/Biology/Bio231/glycolysis.html 


  • This animation highlights the major stages of glycolysis to help you generally understand this important cell process.  


     4. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Idy2XAlZIVA 


  • The electron transport chain is explained in this video, its animations and narrations work together to help you better understand the electron transport chain. 


     5.  http://vcell.ndsu.nodak.edu/animations/regulatedtranscription/movie-flash.htm 


  • This video shows transcription in DNA.

Good research. THe next thing I want you to try is using the plug-in option for video and using tables to organize your images. We can talk this week about that.
