I decided to start a blog telling about what my students learn in their high school medical science courses. Today, we are learning about different diseases. The assignment started by researching different diseases that I gave them. Well, I didn’t make them ill, I just gave them a piece of paper with a disease name written on it. They research causes, signs/symptoms, treatment, etc. Two students were given the same disease. Today, they got together on how to present it to their classmates. The class had to take notes. They will be given an open note test immediately following the presentations. I do this at least once per year. They learn a lot and I get to sit at my desk.
