ADL15 Mutation Story- Angelman Syndrome

Part 1: My story

Angelman Syndrome gene story

Part 2: The making of my Mutation Story

Some of the questions I answered to aid me in making my gene story:

  •  How does the syndrome effect my host’s life?
  • how does the protagonist of my story work inside the cell?
  • How does the syndrome effect the functioning of the host’s body?
  • What caused the mutation to occur?

Some digital tools i used to aid in the making of my story:

  • Google chrome
  • bookmarked pages that I used to research my mutation
  • other websites then Wikipedia
  • Microsoft Word

Order I did my work:

  • Research mutation
  • brainstorm and make notes about mutation/story
  • forget about story until day before due date
  • write story
  • proof read my story
  • check criteria
  • make Edublog post
  • check criteria again
  • sit back and relax

Overall I found this project enjoyable. I love writing and getting a chance to write a story about something that relates to both writing and science inspired me. I don’t think there’s anything about this project I would do differently, only that I should’ve finished sooner 🙂

    I really appreciated the creativity you put into your story. I did wonder why the story was about Ben and you had a picture of a girl in it. Other than that, the story and your part 2 were clear and engaging.

      Thank you for the feedback, I didn’t even realize the picture and character didn’t match! I’ll fix that right away 🙂
