  • Members of the class take notes on all presentations. At the end of the presentations, each student writes an essay that compares and contrasts the diseases that were presented. Students develop their own "10 Most Serious Diseases" list based on number of cases, mortality rates, etc. When the essays are turned in students discuss and defend their decisions.
