Project Name: Infectious Disease and Immune System Unit
Resources: Infectious Disease and Immune System Unit
Students were assigned an infectious disease to research in groups. They shared their research to create a full understanding of five aspects of the disease and its epidemiology in order to develop an action plan in response to a posed scenario. Students presented the action plan to the class in a press conference, where other students took on the roles of journalists. The focus of this Cornerstone Assessment is to improve the level of questions (fact-based vs. explanation-based) students ask and answer through research.
