Lesson Plan Integrating Technology & Pedagogy Directions and Outline
Name _Morgan McAdam__________________________________ Date ___11/30/15______
Standards:
Next Generation Science Standards HS-LS3-3.
Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of
expressed traits in a population.
ISTE Standards
Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity: Engage students in exploring
real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources.
Lesson Objectives:
A.) The students will calculate the probability of inheritance in relation to a persons blood
type. The student will learn the four different blood types and how antigens affect a
persons blood type. Students will also learn the role antigens and antibodies play in
blood transfusion.
B.) Students will be able to use website activities to help strengthen their understanding of
the material that is presented in class.
Introduce the Learning Activity:
A.) The teacher will introduce the lesson by asking the class what they remember about
genetics.
a. This will provide a brief review of the material learned in the previous class.
b. Important terms to review include homozygote, heterozygote, allele, dominant allele,
co dominant allele, recessive allele, phenotype, and genotype.
B.) Once review is finished, the teacher will explain that what the students learned yesterday
about genetic inheritance and probability, relates to the real life application of a persons
blood type and blood transfusions.
C.) The teacher will then show the 2 minute YouTube video, 100 greatest discoveries-blood
transfusion. to engage students and motivate their learning.
a. This video can be viewed by clicking this link:
http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/29280-100-greatest-discoveries-bloodtransfusion-video.htm
b. This video is also available in the teachers resources tab on her website.
D.) The teacher will explain the genetics of blood and what alleles are needed to create the
four different blood types. The teacher will have students practice what they have learned

by having them work on Solving ABO Blood Type Problems (see below) before the
teacher covers the next section of material.
E.) The teacher will explain what antigens are and how their presence determines a persons
blood type. The teacher will explain what antibodies are and how they affect blood
transfusions. The teacher will also explain what blood types are compatible with each
other. The teacher will allow students to practice what they have learned by playing The
Blood Type Game (see below).
Provide Information:
The teacher will provide a handout that has example blood inheritance patterns that she
will hand out to the students and she will go over the handout with the class using the
projector. The teacher will also provide a handout from the American Red Cross that
describes what antigens are present on each red blood cell, has blood compatibility
charts, and has a chart of blood type inheritance.
Provide Practice:
Solving ABO Blood Type Problems
a.) The students will go to their teachers website:
http://student.plattsburgh.edu/mmcad002/
b.) In the Resources tab, the students will click the link:
http://www.sciencemusicvideos.com/solving-abo-blood-type-inheritance-problems/
c.) The students will complete The Genetics of ABO Blood Type and Solving Blood
Type Problems.
d.) Students will be given about 5 minutes to complete both activities.
e.) This activity allows the students a chance to practice their knowledge of blood type
inheritance.
f.) The teacher will use this time to observe students working independently to assess if
they are understanding the material and give students the opportunity to ask the
teacher or their peers for help with the questions.
The Blood Typing Game
a.) The students will go to their teachers website.
http://student.plattsburgh.edu/mmcad002/
b.) In the Resources tab, students will click the link:
http://www.nobelprize.org/educational/medicine/bloodtypinggame/gamev2/index.html
c.) The students will select Quick game-with random patients. They will then complete
blood transfusions for the three patients provided.
d.) The students will be given 3-5 minutes to complete this game.
e.) This activity allows students to practice using their knowledge of blood transfusions.
f.) The teacher will use this time to observe students working independently to assess if
they are understanding the material and give students the opportunity to ask the
teacher or their peers for help with the questions.

Provide Knowledge of Results:


A. The teacher will provide verbal feedback by observing students as they are working
on both the Solving ABO Blood Type Problems and during The Blood Typing Game.
B. The students will receive feedback from Solving ABO Blood Type Problems while
completing the activity because the website will say correct or incorrect each time the
students answer a question. The students will receive feedback during The Blood
Typing Game because the website will say correct or incorrect and the patients will
scream with delight or pain as students are playing the game.
Review the Activity:
At the end of the lesson, I will ask students to tell the class one thing that they learned in
todays lesson about genetic inheritance, blood types, or blood transfusions.
Method of Assessment:
The teacher will email a questionnaire to all of her students via their Gmail using Google
Forms. Students will have to open their email and answer the 5 questions before they are
allowed to leave the class. The students answers will be automatically emailed to the
teacher, so she will know what questions students are struggling with individually, and
what questions the class as a whole struggled with. The students answers will not be
graded, unless they get all of the questions correct, in which case they will receive 2
bonus points on their next quiz.
