Students can reach out to medical professionals, there is potential for an exhibition of diagnostic talents to peers/parents
What is the projected timeline/calendar for this project?
It could be done as a full semester project that would need to be completed for the last couple weeks of school. It could also be done for each specific unit and be presented for unit review.
What are the opportunities for draft, critique and revision? How will the work be accessed for critique? How are the students accountable for drafts and revisions?
Students will work in groups of 2 or 3. Each student will be responsible for developing a case study proposal which will then be discussed by group members. Each group will then decide upon one case study to focus on. Eventually each group would come together with another group to review/critique/revise the case study. Finally students will set up a time to do a review with the teacher.
Students can create pamphlets outlining symptoms and treatments; weebly
Create posters ie: neurons indicating area of damage, negative feedback chart for hormonal control,
Students could try to connect with medical students; develop relationship with U of Calgary
See if we can get U of C dept of medicine to present cases to class; connect with parents that may be able to help with this
See if any students are interested in doing a special project in building a program involving U of Calgary and High School Biology class.
Create rubric that can be used throughout the building process ie: include such things as the peer review process (was it helpful, insightful, constructive or was it just an easy answer), individual proposal, group decision on a case (how did they come to that decision), the review presentation with the teacher (were they able to support their info), authenticity of the data (citation)
Exhibition: have something for individuals to do at the station
