PROJECT TO LEARN ABOUT DIFFERENT HUMAN DISEASES AND MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES THAT WOULD HELP DIAGNOSE OR TREAT IT.
Here is a great research project for high school students studying biology. Included are 12 different cases, each describing an individual who is experiencing some unusual health symptoms.
Your students' task is to work in groups of 2-3, to research possible human diseases or conditions based on the case description. And also research different medical technologies that are available that would help diagnose or treat that condition.
Presentation of the project is completely up to the classroom teacher. I've had students do oral presentations, skits, storybooks, poster boards, etc.
Included: 12 different cases, Brainstorming handouts for students, rubrics, self-assessments, peer-assessments, and TEACHER ANSWER GUIDE
