Learning Goal: I’m working on a biology project and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Purpose: Students will work independently and research a type of cancer in order to
connect their learning to real world issues. They will each create a PowerPoint or Slides
Presentation as the final product. This project will serve as a “summative” assessment and
is worth 80 points.
Guidelines for PowerPoint/Slides Project:
Students must include the following information on their Presentations:
a. Name of Cancer
b. Description of how the cancer affects the body/ specific organ
c. Inheritance of the cancer (how does one get this Cancer? Is it genetic? Etc.)
