Teaching about cells

Start here

So, we’re supposed to teach our students biology – but where to start? What topics to cover? And in what order should we cover them? And for each topic, what are the relevant learning standards? This sequence works for me:

Characteristics of Life
Organelles, an introduction
Organelles: In more depth

What is the role of enzymes in cells?

Diffusion

Osmosis

Endocytosis and exocytosis

Then we move on to types of cells

Bacteria

Archaea

Now the bitty-gritty: Cell reproduction

Mitosis

Asexual reproduction

Meiosis

For those teaching Honors Biology

Active transport across cell membranes

Ion channels and carrier proteins

Endosymbiosis: origin of eukaryotic cells from prokaryotes
