Product Description
DO you need a CER activity for your biology or anatomy students? Do you need something that is more interesting to read and write about? Do you want to test their ability to organize information and problem solve? If so, then “You be the Doctor” might be just what you need!

In this activity the students read about the description/cause, symptoms, and diagnostic tests for four common digestive system disorders (Celiac, Colitis, IBS and Crohn’s). The students organize this information into a medical chart. The students are then given the symptoms their patient is experiencing and their test results. They organize this information into a patient chart. Students can then compare the information in the medical chart to their patient chart and are asked to make a diagnosis. Which disease does their patient have?

The medical case is not too complicated to solve. The real work comes when they write their CER. This part of the activity looks like this:

After completing the reading and note-taking, you must determine which digestive disease your patient has. You must write your answer and prove it using CER.
C = your claim. What is your diagnosis? Which disease do you think your patient has?

E = Evidence. You must discuss all the evidence that will back your claim and evidence explaining why it can’t be the other diseases

R =Reasoning. This ties it all together. Make sure you clearly connect all your evidence to your claim.
