Use this forum to share a website you found particularly interesting or informative on the topic of sex & gender determination. After surveying the site, and seeing what it has to offer, come back into the forum, link to the site, and describe what the reader/viewer can expect to find there. I'm guessing that all searches from school should be smart with the word "sex" (unfortunately) since that word is so often pulled out by web filtering software. Unfortunately, even our very liberal filtering policies here tend to squeeze biology content a little bit from time to time.
Vary search terms to find unique sites, and remember: you cannot re-post one that has appeared before you in the thread. Try to mix & match: "gender", "sex", "determination" "genetic", "genetics", "gamete", gametes", etc.
Be sure to be as discriminating as possible when evaluating sites. For example, this site
is one of the top returns in Google when entering the following simple search: "gender determination". Do you think the information on this site is based more on science, or folklore? This exercise will certainly be more challenging than the last two, considering those topic are rarely ever addressed outside of scientific circles.
Put more simply: you're going to have
to get past the first page of results from an open search engine.
Also, keep in mind that this prompt doesn't necessarily confine you to sex determination in humans, does it? It would also be interesting to see how this may vary among differing groups of animals.
When you post... if it is a simple link to a site, post that link and also perhaps links to other pages within that you would like to direct your classmates to. If you have a really nice piece of video that you can embed directly into the discussion, do that here as well.
Be sure to tell us: why you chose the site. Why did this one stick out to you? Why does it do a good job of teaching the processes involved with sex determination? What is a criticism of the site if any? Is there something that could be added to make it perfect? What is the main thing you learned already from your brief review of this website? Since we need to look over all of these sites and provides comments, we won't have time to explore each site as deeply as you did. So- direct us specifically to what you determine to be the "good stuff."
