With your group, you will be identifying, researching and presenting either a science based or social based “issue” to your peers. The following information needs to be included in your report. All members must contribute to the project and the presentation.
Science based issue- below are the general guidelines to finding research for your assigned issue. Use the guidelines as reference for researching and presenting all aspects of your issue.
* Identify the issue you are presenting * give the general overview of the condition * Who does it affect (children, teens, adults, all)? * Symptoms (how can you identify a person with this issue) * Causes (genetics, social, medical) * Cures or Treatments (ways to help a person with your issue-meds, counseling, both, etc…)
