Genetics Analysis and Principles 6th Edition PDF Free Download
In the sixth edition of Genetics: Analysis & Principles, the content has been updated to reflect current trends in the field. In addition, the presentation of the content has been improved in a way that fosters active learning. As an author, researcher, and teacher, I want a textbook that gets students actively involved in learning genetics. To achieve this goal, I have worked with a talented team of editors, illustrators, and media specialists who have helped me to make the sixth edition of Genetics: Analysis & Principles a fun learning tool. Overall, an effective textbook needs to accomplish four goals. First, it needs to provide comprehensive, accurate, and upto- date content in its field. Second, it needs to expose students to the techniques and skills they will need to become successful in that field. Third, an effective textbook should have pedagogical features, such as formative assessment, that foster student learning. And finally, it should inspire students so they want to pursue that field as a career. The hard work that has gone into the sixth edition of Genetics: Analysis & Principles has been aimed at achieving all four of these goals! FLIPPING THE CLASSROOM A recent trend in science education is the phenomenon that is sometimes called “flipping the classroom.” This phrase refers to the idea that some of the activities that used to be done in class are now done outside of class, and vice versa.
For example, instead of spending the entire class time lecturing over textbook and other materials, some of the class time is spent engaging students in various activities, such as problem solving, working through case studies, and designing experiments. This approach is called active learning. For many instructors, the classroom has become more learner centered rather teacher centered. A learner-centered classroom provides a rich environment in which students can interact with each other and with their instructors. Instructors and fellow students often provide formative assessment—immediate feedback that helps each student understand if his or her learning is on the right track. What are some advantages of active learning? Educational studies reveal that active learning usually promotes greater learning gains. In addition, active learning often focuses on skill development rather than on the memorization of facts that are easily forgotten. Students become trained to “think like scientists” and to develop a skill set that enables them to apply scientific reasoning. A common concern among instructors who are beginning to try out active learning is that they think they will have less time to teach and therefore will cover less material. However, this may not be the case.
