Personal Genetics Education Project (www.pged.org).
We develop and distribute teaching resources for high school and college teachers, and also conduct outreach events at schools and for the general public. Current high school students are the first generation of people who will come of age in an era of personalized medicine, and they need to grasp the scientific and social issues they will face if we want to see personal genetics adopted in a fair and ethical way. Our materials consist of innovative lesson plans that tackle complex ethical issues while remaining focused on key scientific concepts that are all aligned with the Common Core Standards. Examples can be found, all free of charge, at: www.pged.org/lesson-plans. To give you a sense about our work, here is a link to a very short essay we contributed to the Genomics Law Report published by Robinson, Bradshaw and Hinson.http://www.genomicslawreport.com/index.php/2009/10/20/the-next-generation-is-in-high-school/
