Remedy Journal

Project Type: History
In this project, students will contribute to a class "remedy journal" by researching interesting, out-dated medical treatments. They need to include information on how the treatment of certain diseases and medical conditions has improved over time. Each page of the remedy journal should contain information on the type of condition, its causes, and how it was treated in the past. Students can include a "current treatment" section to show how the condition is treated today.

Student can visit these web sites for information on how certain illnesses and medical conditions were treated in the past. Some students may need to do additional research if they choose a specific topic. Always supervise students carefully while they are doing internet research.
