Hello High School Biology Teachers,
In a previous message, I described a biotechnology course that I will 
be offering for CPS high school teachers this fall.  My message 
stated that teachers must sign up for Lane Promotional Credit.  I 
have recently been informed that teachers who do not wish to get Lane 
credit could attend the course to exclusively receive CEUs from the 
ISBE (our program is an approved provider).  These teachers would not 
need to register through Teachers Academy, but MUST contact me prior 
to the first class to check if there is room in the class (enrollment 
is limited to 26).  Brief details regarding the class are noted below.

The course, entitled "Bringing Biotechnology to Your High School 
Classroom", will be held on three Saturdays, Sept. 22, Oct. 20, and 
Nov. 17 from 8:00am - 1:00pm at Whitney Young High School.  The 
course will feature hands-on laboratory activities appropriate for 
high school classes.  Laboratories will include DNA extraction, 
antibiotic screening of bacteria, transformation of bacteria, and 
analysis of DNA using agarose gel electrophoresis.  Teachers who 
successfully complete the course will receive 3 CEUs.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the course.
