Science Today

1) Set down your things, but don't have a


seat just yet.
2) Get out your Iist of three
diseases/illnesses/conditions that did for HW.
Find someone eIse that has one of the same
diseases/illnesses/conditions that you have.
Sit with that person.

3) With your partner, discuss what you wiII
need to find out in order to become an
expert on your group's
disease/illness/condition. Brainstorm a Iist of
research questions you might need to
answer about that disease in order to Iearn

Is It a ReIevant Disease?
On Friday, you wiII need a Iist of at Ieast 3 diseases that you want
to Iearn more about. Before you finaIize your Iist, make sure you've
read through the foIIowing:
Do peopIe stiII get this disease in modern times? (if NO, choose
another disease.)
Is this a very rare disease? (if YES, choose another disease.)
Has this disease been eIiminated? (if YES, choose another
disease.)
Does this disease have genetic causes / are you born with this
disease? (if YES, choose another disease.)
WiII Iearning more about this disease heIp prevent infection? (if
NO, choose another disease.)
Your goal is to have a list of 3 diseases that are relevant to Middle
School and High School students. Try to pick diseases that you
have had, or that friends of yours have had (like pimples, the flu,
etcetera).
