Watching the Movie - GATTACA

Students watched the movie GATTACA (can be rented at a video store) and answered questions on the viewing guide, which can be found as a file at the bottom of this web page: http://www.middletownhs.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=41979&type=u&rn=1482866, or at this web site:
http://mshartatgreenhope.googlepages.com/Week16.doc This is part of our study of genetics.
The answer key for the viewing guide questions can be found here: http://www.middletownhs.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=41979&type=u&rn=5497465

Here is another website that has questions about the movie GATTACA, and lessons about genetic engineering humans:
