1. Question 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: Microsoft Clip Art There are many diseases that negatively impact the human nervous system. The number of people diagnosed annually with diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s has been steadily increasing. Research is being conducted to determine the causes and possible treatments for these neurological diseases.

Information Sources Parkinson’s Disease Disease Overview Dr. Oz Discusses Parkinson’s Disease Foundation NY Times Article ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) Disease Overview PBS Overview Stephen Hawking Lives with ALS ALS Association Multiple Sclerosis Disease Overview Dr. Murray Interview Brain Pop Video NY Times Article Huntington's disease Disease Overview Background and Diagnosis NHS Video and Article Stanford University Project Alzheimer's Disease Statistics/Global Concern Brain Pop Video Treatment NY Times Article National Geographic Diagram 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: Microsoft Clip Art
3. Student Activity As you use the informational resources provided take notes on your neurological disease. Make sure that your research analyzes each of the neurological levels that are negatively effect by the disease. 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: Microsoft Clip Art Inquiry Organizer
4. Assessment Activity Develop a group presentation that summarizes your findings, organize your group presentation using a digital platform such as PowerPoint, Prezi, Thinglink, Inspiration, Animoto or Wall Wisher.Prezi,ThinglinkAnimotoWall Wisher Present your findings to the class and take Cornell Notes Cornell Notes Record details and examples to clarify your understanding of each neurological disease and think about how it compares to your research. 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: Microsoft Clip Art
5. Enrichment Activities Research one structure of the brain utilizing the resources below. After conducting your research on a specific brain structure you will create an infographic that…infographic 1) Analyzes the functions of the brain structure 2) How this structure works with other parts of the brain 3) Discusses any disorders that are associated with your chosen structure. National Geographic Brain Basics The Human Brain To create your infographic you can use one of the following digital platforms.

6. Teacher Support Materials BCPS Curriculum Unit 1: Indicator 03. Students will investigate the components of the nervous system in order to determine neurological functions. Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real-world situations, and further investigations. Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students 3.0: Use a variety of technologies for learning and collaboration. Time Frame: This lesson should take one 90 minute period or two 45 minute class periods to conduct research and create student presentation. Differentiation: Direct students to use comprehension tools included in databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels, and embedded dictionaries. Learning Styles: Visual, auditory, field dependent, global AVID Strategy: Cornell Notes Notes to the teacher: Teachers should choose/ approve what groups and disease students will analyze. Teachers will need to see their technology liaison or library media specialist for assistance in creating accounts for Wall Wisher, Voice Thread, Prezi, Glogster or Animoto accounts. All of these do not require a fee but must have access before students begin this project.
