20100208121018eNadu.jpg

For this assignment you will take on the role of either a biographer, a teacher, the scientist, or a family member of the scientist. 

As the biographer, you would present the information in the form of a biography about the scientist.  For example, you may write the life history of Erwin Chargaff, including his discovery about DNA. 

As the teacher, you would present the  information to teach others about the scientist.  For example, you may create a PowerPoint that would be used to teach a class about Erwin Chargaff and his discovery about DNA.

As the scientist, you would give the information from a first person point of view.  For example, you could write a skit where you are Erwin Chargaff and you explain his discovery about DNA.

As the family member, you would be sharing the history of the scientist with a younger family member or as part of a family history.  For example, you are Erwin Chargaff's grandson and you are telling your own son about Chargaff and his discovery about DNA.

You may choose the way that you want to present the information from the Choice Board document that is on this webpage.  You must choose from the column that matches your group color.  Choose your scientist(s) from the list on the Scientists document.  You must choose from the list with your group color.
