Resources: An information pamphlet from a doctor’s office and Appendix G
Create a tri-fold pamphlet, such as one you would find at a doctor’s office, about a sexually transmitted disease. (Syphilis has been assigned to me.) Students have found that other trifold templates, such as Microsoft, etc may work better.
Address each of the elements in the grading form provided in the document titled Appendix G Rubric located on the student website, and answer the following questions related to the audience you are trying to reach in the phamplet:
- Is the disease transmitted exclusively through sexual contact or can it be spread nonsexually?
- What are its symptoms, and how can it can be diagnosed? (Be sure to compare a healthy system to one affected by the infection or disease.)
- What epidemiological and clinical impact does the disease or infection have?
- How can the infection or disease be prevented?
