Students use a website to research the anatomy, treatment, prognosis, and current research in eight common neurological or brain related diseases and disorders. The website is provided on the first page of the assignment. Students then pick two additional disorders from the website to research. Teacher could alternatively print information on the diseases out from the website as class sets for students if a computer lab is not available.
I used this as a general assignment in my on-level psychology class, and as an emergency substitute assignment in my AP psychology class. It would also work well in a health class.
