American Museum of Natural History Curriculum Collections: Politics & Pathogens

The American Museum of Natural History has compiled this collection of twelve two hour-long lesson plans that are designed to provide students with a humanistic perspective on health care and disease. In addition to detailed lesson plans, readers will find ready-made PowerPoint presentations and links to related resources, such as articles and videos. Although these lessons are designed to be completed as a series, they also contain activities that can be completed in shorter time periods or as stand-alone lessons. Sessions facilitate student learning by using a number of compelling central questions, including "How does oppression make the experience of disease and illness different in different cultural contexts?" and "What is the relationship between humans and the microbes that cause disease?" In all, this Curriculum Collection contains lessons and resources that may be of interest to science, social studies, and health educators alike.
