Background Information:
Students will research one bacterial or viral pathogen and produce a "Wanted Poster."

Project Description/Abstract:
Make a wanted poster for one of the Monerans listed above. Poster is to be on 8.5" x 11" paper. Include:
  1. "photo" (electron micrograph or microscopic picture/diagram
  2. description - include Gram stain
  3. organism's m.o.-modus operandi (How the organism attacks and spreads)
  4. most common victims to prey upon
  5. hide out of the culprit (where it is most likely to be found)
  6. most common injury done to victim
  7. Is it considered armed and dangerous? rate the degree of damage caused
  8. number of victims
  9. most effective weapons against the germ
  10. any other identifying characteristics (such as tattoos)
  11. Procedure:
  12. Students have one period in the to research their disease. Any additional time needed for research or production of the poster is to be done on their own.Evaluation: Students are graded by the above criteria.
