This Cancer Webquest was made for an Anatomy and Physiology course, but it could easily be used for a secondary or post-secondary life sciences course focused on cells and tissues. The following objectives are addressed in this Webquest:
· Describe the connection between tissues and various types of cancers.
· Define cancer, risk factors, and how it is spread.
· Choose one type of cancer to identify the following: Symptoms, How it is diagnosed, Anatomical description of the disease, Treatments, ONE current research paper related to your disorder.
This Webquest ends with an opportunity for students to research a type of cancer of their choice and then share what they found with peers in a peer-conference activity. (I call it Speed Dating)
