Human Cloning -Dead or Alive?




Work in a group of three students. Your mission is to create a pamphlet on facts and issues on human cloning. Follow the steps closely and your group will achieve this goal easily!

Step 1: Discuss and select a role first. Student A is the pamphlet designer and co-writer, Student B is the graphic researcher and co-writer and Student C is the logo designer and co-writer of the pamphlet.

Step 2: Plan and organize your pamphlet to make it appealing. Add some interesting graphics and pictures. Conduct a research and gather information for the contents. Evaluate all the information gathered before it is written in the pamphlet. Contents can be based on the questions asked below: 

標hat is human cloning? Explain the cloning process.
標hat are the three different types of cloning technologies? Discuss all of them.
標hat are the
pros and cons of human cloning?
標hy are there

標hat are the future of human cloning? Discuss the history of cloning technologies

Step 3: After reading and exploring all the links on the pros and cons of the issues on human cloning, each member must decide and write an argumentative essay each on 'Should human cloning be allowed?' Send your essay to your teacher by using email for evaluation and comments.
