The American Anthropological Association (AAA)
Personal Genetics Education Project @ Harvard Medical School
The website of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) offers K-12 teaching resources, field schools, public ed, and higher ed learning resources. Two online resources of note:
“The RACE Project explains differences among people and reveals the reality – and unreality – of race. The story of race is complex and may challenge how we think about race and human variation, about the differences and similarities among people.” (A video from this project makes an appearance in ANYA!)
“World on the Move: 100,000 Years of Human Migration, draws on scholarship concerning the depth of human history and the breadth of cultures across the globe to help people rethink their ideas about moving, displacement, and belonging—and to use what they learn to better understand their own migration histories and those of others.”

Frontline Genomics: Resources
The Personal Genetics Education Project raises awareness and sparks conversation about the potential benefits as well as the ethical, legal, and social implications of personal genetics. They have free lesson plans available for high school and educators.
Genetics Generation (UC San Diego)
From associations and blogs to genomic databases and government initiatives, discover a wide range of genetics and genomics resources available online. Courtesy of Frontline Genomics.
NIH: National Human Genome Research Institute
Created by Dr. Laura Rivard's’ UCSD biology students, this site includes a range of introductory genetics tutorials, updates on current research and testing, and a chance to explore genetics laws and ethics through case studies.
This is a great place to start, but be aware that it appears to have been created in 2015 and may not be up to date.
The Genetics/Genomics Competency Center (G2C2) provides an online repository of curated genetics/genomics education materials for educators and practitioners. Includes peer reviewed collections for genetic counselors, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and physicians.
