Some examples of topics are skin cancer, sunburn & sunscreen, sunless tanning, tanning pills, tanning salons & UV rays, acne, vitiligo psoriasis, eczema, burns (unrelated to UV exposure), athlete’s foot, tattoos, rosacea, scabies . You may choose other topics as long as they are skin related and you have received permission from the teacher. With your partner, research your topic based on the questions below. These questions are only to get you started. You may find that some questions may NOT apply to your topic. After some basic research you should ADD your own topic specific questions to the list below. You will have access to the wireless laptops or computer room during class. Once you have gathered all your information, create a Glog on your topic. The visual aide should be clear, understandable, creative, and include graphics and possible video clips and hyperlinks. You will also need to develop a set of possible test questions for your topic using a google form Ms. Barrett has set up online. Click here to go to the form.You need at least 6 objective questions (ex. multiple choice, True/False). Students should be able to answer your questions after viewing your glog. You will also need to link any pictures used and text to the original source!


Each glog will be viewed by classmates so they can answer the test questions you wrote based on your research
