Description of how to implement in the class: I have created a Quizlet on the four major macromolecules. I will first introduce the subject
to the students and then allow them to use Quizlet to reiterate the material. There are many new terms in the macromolecule unit and I believe drill and practice
will aid the students in remembering these new terms. This will help us be able to build upon the concept of macromolecules and apply it later when we are
discussing concepts like translation or transcription with nucleic acids. I will allow them to work in small groups which will help the students come up with ways to
remember this new information and not rely completely on memory. If students finish an assignment early then I will allow them to run through Quizlet to keep
them from being bored or getting into trouble.

* Examples of common instructional models include whole group, teacher-led, student self-paced, small group, or
individual learning activities. Use as many of these descriptors or other descriptors as apply.
