In this lesson, students read and analyze an excerpt from the text that describes how the Lacks family discovers the HeLa cells, and how the research community makes use of the Lacks family’s DNA to untangle a cell culture contamination problem. Students read and analyze the text, and work to identify a central idea based on specific details. Students are introduced to the pre-search process and the Pre-Search Tool.
