    Over the course of the semester, the student is expected to:
    1. Independently test and optimize laboratory procedures and/or Identify in the literature alternative, related procedures, test them.
    2. Identify links to social justice and cultural competence to collaborate with in building these lessons.
    3. Write a preliminary lab handout for students and teaching notes for TAs.:
    4. Observe the lab in progress; what is and isn't working?
    5. Revise materials based on laboratory observations.
    6. Analyze students outcomes and do further revisions
