Lesson Plans

Impactful Elements:

In this lesson, students will read an informational text that describes how certain elements (copper and zinc are highlighted) can affect human health in both positive and negative ways. Current research on these elements and possible treatments for the negative health effects associated with them is also discussed. This lesson is designed to support reading in the content area. The lesson plan includes a note-taking guide, text-dependent questions, a writing prompt, answer keys, and a writing rubric.

Type: Lesson Plan

The Dangers of Sticky Blood:

Students will research the dangers of high blood cholesterol levels in humans. The prevention of high cholesterol and lowering of high cholesterol to improve health of individuals will be presented in an informative online newsletter. The newsletters will be utilized to raise community awareness of the issue within the school by printing out the final products and displaying them in the school hallway. The online tool Smore will be used for constructing the newsletter and can be shared on social media to reach those that are not in the school community.

World Cup Raises Epidemic Questions:

This informational text resource is intended to support reading in the content area. Tropical areas such as Brazil can be hotspots for communicable diseases due to warm temperatures and crowded urban spaces. There is a concern that when Brazil hosts the World Cup, mosquito-borne dengue fever may spread to its visitors. The article explores methods of pathogen transfer in a variety of venues (pilgrimages, airplanes, cruise lines) and compares these to conditions at the World Cup.
