PowerPoint presentation on Viral Specificity and Human Lines of Defense.
This colorful presentation includes both electron micrograph and illustrated images and animations. The following information is discussed
- viruses and disease
- viral specificity
- the human body's primary, secondary and tertiary lines of defense against viral infections
- a detailed description of the immune systems cellular response to invaders insluding the production of anitibodies
- what is epidemiology?
- factors that affect the rate of disease transmission
- treatment and prevention of viral infection
- how do vaccines work?
Please see my site for a student worksheet that is available that is exactly the same as the presentation with blanks for students to fill in as they watch, discuss the presentation.
I have found these powerpoints to be great tools in the classroom as students have the opportunity to actually see and discuss images instead of simply words. I have sold this particular powerpoint to over 100 teachers in Canada and have had great reviews for my work.
