									       Research Poster Presentation: Viral and Bacterial Diseases

                                      Project Due Date____Feb 15_____________

Introduction: Disorders, or diseases, manifest themselves in different ways, but for this
project you will research a disease that affect any human system in some manner and
report your findings in a poster format and in a written paper.

    TLW research a disorder or disease affecting the skeletal system.
    TLW practice reporting information in a poster presentation format as is
       commonly done in college- and university-level science classes.

   2. Verify you topic choice with your teacher.
   3. Find out everything that you can about your topic, using a minimum of three
       sources. Two of the three sources must be textbooks.
   4. Write a paper about your chosen disorder that covers the following topics. If
       there are other important issues associated with your chosen disorder that is not
       listed below include those as well. Have at least three visual aids (all from print
       media) accompany your presentation.
            a. What is the origin of this disease?
            b. What is happening with the DNA to cause these diseases (if anything)?
            c. What are the affects of this disease?
            d. How is this disease contracted?

   5. Print out the name of the disorder you researched in a font size that measures 15-
   18mm in height. Print out each of the above topic questions and any additional topics
   you covered in a font size that measures between 6-8mm in height. Print out your
   responses to the above questions in a font size that measures between 4-6 mm in
   height. Print out or photocopy your visual aids. Attach paper (make sure to include
   bibliography of all sources; including pictures), visual aids and bibliography to a
   sheet of poster board in such a way that the information is easy to read and visually
