This case study is about the flu and it’s prevention and treatment. It provides the student with a look at someone who is going through the process of sitting at work hearing the sounds of sickness to their recovery. It has 22 questions that require the student to look up things about common medications used, length of the flu, what causes fever, the purpose of fever in fighting an infection, and common complications.
A key is provided for all questions. The product could be used in any HS or higher education biology or health class. It would be a great assignment to complete during the flu season to help education students about the virus. The product could be used as a homework assignment or an in class assignment tied to a lecture using the case study narrative. Students will need to use resources other than their textbook to answer some of the questions.
