Stem Cells, CRISPR and Genetic engineering

1️⃣ Introduction
2️⃣ Round №1
Look through the materials provided to students for the lesson.
Spend 5-7 minutes talking about, explaining, asking questions and introducing materials (aka vocabulary) to students.
Make sure they now understand how to use it.

▶️ Spend more time on this part if necessary
▶️ You goal is to make students realize that they actually learned something today
What are stem cells, what do you know about them?
Have you ever heard of CRISPR? Can you explain what it is?
What would be the next step for scientists to do in gene engineering? Why?
Scientists are now able to grow a human embryo outside the body for around first 14 days. At what point it becomes unethical to grow humans in a lab? Does it become unethical at any point at all?
If it was possible, would you like to edit your DNA? What would you want to change and why?
What business would gain the most from Genetic engineering available to regular people?
What is the relationship of Genetic engineering to religions of the world? Is it mutually exclusive? Why (not)?
3️⃣ Round №2
4️⃣ Outroduction
Gene engineering will only widen the divide between the rich and the poor.
CRISPR should be regulated in the same way GMO is.
Business must invest in modifying animals to stay competitive in the market.
There is potential to use the CRISPR-technology to prevent inheritable diseases before birth.
Gene therapy is a way of repairing genetic disorders like autism, down syndrome or Parkinson's. Everything possible must be made to make advances to save people, even if it means crossing some ethical lines.
American authorities call CRISPR a potential weapon of mass destruction for a reason.
Spend 5-7 minutes discussing the mistakes people made.
Give good and bad examples of how the vocabulary you discussed in the beginning was used during the lesson.
Visit breakout rooms and write down students’ mistakes
engage with the students as much as the situation requires
write down common mistakes
write down misuse of the vocabulary (materials) of the lesson
