No Quick Fix: Exploring Human Body Systems
Author(s): COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY
No Quick Fix uses systems as the fundamental concept to help students in grades 6-8 understand cell and tuberculosis biology. In a series of widening concentric circles, students learn that cells are elements in larger systems, such as the immune system and the even larger system of the human body. Students also interact with the human social systems: health care and public education. They will take on the role of physician and begin to search for the cause and resolution of the problem. While unraveling the interactions among various systems, students can appreciate the complexities of staying healthy in the modern world.
