Conceptually, how genetic switches function and their role in the process of evolution, can be difficult for students to visualize. "Gene Switches—A Model" attempts to make all of this more understandable through the use of clips from the HHMI DVD Evolution: Constant Change and Common Threads and the construction of a model. This activity can be done as a demonstration, a student inquiry activity, or a combination of the two.
