This course for gifted students grades 5-7 teaches mechanisms of disease, medical concepts, logical reasoning, experimental design, statistical analysis, and epidemiological investigation, culminating in a medical mystery: an illness outbreak at the State Fair.
The Craft of Curriculum
How can we get gifted students to deepen their understanding of literary and historical characters? How can we bring together isolated facts and help students visualize and analyze the impact of a person on a story or a time period? A Body Biography is a way students can use images and writing to express that analytical and conceptual understanding of characters.
