Your group will be researching a disease which will be reported to the class.



Part I: Article Summaries

Your 12-slide PPT will include the following information:

  • Name(s) of the disease
  • Cause
  • Symptoms and signs
  • Transmission
  • Effects
  • Treatments and/or cures

Correct bibliography (works cited) format - see sample below

All citations must be parenthetically documented in your research paper

  • When researching at home using the MCPS Online Services, you will need to access usernames/passwords from your Edline account (in the Media Center folder).  MCPS Online Services are marked with an asterisk (*).
  • Most of the articles from MCPS Online Services have MLA citations already created at the bottom of the webpage.  Feel free to copy/paste the citations into a text file (ex. Word) as you compile your bibliography.
