As teachers, we are always looking for tips to improve our practice in our classrooms. For high school science teachers, it can be hard to take the time to pause and be reflective on what we are doing and what we could improve.  So here are 5 ideas for secondary biology teachers to use when teaching cells (organelles, transport, mitosis, and cancer) in their classrooms.

Fun Mitosis cell bulletin board! Great for science.

Mitosis bulletin board that would serve both biology and anatomy classes. Students need to understand the process of mitosis in order to understand how the body is able to grow and repair itself.

After the biochemistry unit, it’s pretty traditional to teach about cells next.  During my first year, I struggled teaching this unit, because it feels so full of details with seemingly very little connection to each other.  There is nothing worse than standing in front of a class and listing the organelle names and their …

My students turned my whole classroom into a giant cell! Each group of students built an organelle (with a rough scale model in relation to the size of the classroom) and presented them to the class. I love this because it helps students really connect
