Human Disease and Disorder Symposium by
Judy Jones

An Exhibition Project – Biology 2
Assignment Sheet

Description of the project:

  • You will work individually or with a partner (requires prior approval)
  • You will select a human disease or disorder to research. This should be a topic that you are passionately interested in! Your disease or disorder may be genetic, pathogenic, psychological, nutritional/environmental or it may be a disability or aging disorder.
  • You will use materials from libraries, the internet, interviews, etc., to develop a deep understanding of the causes and characteristics of your topic. Interviews make particularly interesting additions to your research. These could be interviews with people who have the disease/disorder or with researchers/doctors/nurses.
  • You will write A RESEARCH PAPER, CONSTRUCT A BROCHURE and PREPARE AN EXHIBITION

Symposium Presentation

  • Your exhibition is in addition to the research paper and the brochure.
  • Be creative! You could present a skit of “a day in the life of the individual” with the disease or disorder.
  • You could create a video, write a drama or documentary, do a photographic journal, write a children’s book, prepare a PowerPoint presentation, or create a classy poster (and we do mean CLASSY!).
  • You might illustrate the characteristics and experiences of people with the disorder/disease through some artistic expression (poetry, painting, sculpture, etc.)
  • You could plan an activity and learning experience that involves a whole classroom of people.
  • You will prepare a dynamic, interesting presentation that you would enjoy experiencing yourself!
