Students choose an infectious disease that became an epidemic in the 21st century. Students then study the background biology, the impact of the disease, how the disease was collaboratively studied at a national and international level and any future concerns and developments.
They then need to create a 1000-word assignment summarising their findings.
It includes an assessment rubric.
I do have available a teaching process and some sample assignments which I will upload later or contact me if you are interested.
