Women's Health

After selecting a health issue to investigate...

 

Before researching your role for the health issue, the class will need to learn some medical terminology that will be encountered during the research process. You will also work on some activities/worksheets, in order for the teacher to check if you have fully understood the lesson.        Note: the pronunciation audio clips are British English and not American English.

Now, the research process of the WebQuest begins. In this step, each member in the group will select a role in order to fully understand the health issue from different perspectives. But, remember that the health issue that you will investigate should be focused on women. For example, if your group has selected to research diabetes, you must focus your research and investigate "diabetes in women."

Now, select a role and then work on the assignments for your role.
