1. Topic-
Introduction and Basic Principles of Biochemistry
2. Content-
The topic gives an overview on what Biochemistry is all about. The discussions will involve its definition, history, great scientists involves, importance and uses of Biochemistry, especially in the field of healthcare and medicine. Moreover, we will also discuss the branches of Biochemistry and an overview about Metabolism and the different metabolic activities.
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
At the end of the lesson, the students are expected to:
1. Understand and define Biochemistry and other terms and concepts related to it.
2. Differentiate and analyze the branches of Biochemistry
3. Define and distinguish the similarities and differences about the different metabolic activities and biochemical reactions that occur in a living cell.
4. Objectives-
1. Appreciate the importance and uses of Biochemistry in man's everyday living, especially in the field of healthcare and medicine
2. Cite the physiological function of metabolism in the human body and identify the relationships within the phases and routes of metabolism
3. Express comprehensively things that they have learned in this topic through recitation and quiz.
5. Materials and Aids-
1. PowerPoint presentation with laptop and LCD projector
2. Photocopies of Handouts for students
3. Related educational film
4. Chalk and Chalkboard
5. Picture charts
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1. Have a brief comprehensive review about General Chemistry and relate it to Biochemistry
2. Ask opinions and expectations of students about the course
3. Explain the rationale why they should Biochemistry

B. Development-

1. Discuss comprehensively the specific contents of this topic through lecture discussion with the aid of power point presentations
2. Ask practical questions from the students related to the topic
3.Present picture charts about the flows of metabolism and explain

C. Practice-

1.Allow students to express their practical thoughts about Biochemistry
2.Put them into groups and allow group discussions as they cite the importance of Biochemistry

D. Independent Practice-

1. Provide a homework regarding the biography and important contributions of Great Scientists in Biochemistry
2. Let them bring items that are made up of the biomolecules to be presented next meeting

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1. Video viewing about metabolism
2. Suggest websites and encourage students to open this in the Internet to expand their learning about the topic.
3. Make a blog discussion about the topic in the Internet.
4. Perform an experiment in the Chemistry laboratory related to the topic

F. Checking for understanding-

1. Let them present or report their output in the class regarding their opinions about the importance of Biochemistry
2.Have a recitation activity regarding the topic
3.Present their results in the experimental activity
4. Require them to make a reaction paper regarding the video viewed

G. Closure-

1. Discuss a comprehensive summary and give conclusions about the topic
2. Inspire students with a reflection regarding the importance of Biochemistry
7. Evaluation-
1.Give a quiz, seatwork and/or examination regarding the topic next meeting
2. Do a recitation activity to evaluate the comprehension of students
8. Teacher Reflection-
The topic I will teach deals with the objective study of the chemical composition of living matter. It deals with the study of the structure and function of the biomolecules namely, the carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins and nucleic acids. I will also emphasize the medical, clinical, and human implications of the concepts presented, so designed as to enable students understand it and also to help them appreciate the importance in the chemical processes of the human body, to enable them to use these knowledge in their chosen fields of specialization as well as in their practical living which can be essential and helpful.
