Muscular System Disorder Brochure Project
Overview

Create a tri-fold brochure for a doctor’s office waiting room. The brochure should provide patients with information about one of the muscular system disorders listed below. Assume that most of the patients of your audience are adults with a typical high school science background.

The brochure should be creative as well as informative. You want people to pick it up and read through it. Be sure to include accurate, up-to-date information and graphics that illustrate important ideas. You should reference at least four sources of information on a separate “works cited” page to hand in along with your brochure.  (Google DOES NOT count).

Procedure

You will research the muscular system disorder of your choice and use the following questions. as a guide, to the type of information you will need for your brochure.



  • What other names are there for this disorder? (Any common names?)

  • What causes the disorder?

  • What are the signs and symptoms?

  • How is the muscular system disrupted?

  • How is it diagnosed?

  • What are possible treatments or cures?

  • What is the prognosis for patients diagnosed with this disease?

  • Who gets this disease? What is the incidence of the disorder?

  • What is the current status of research on this disorder?  Is there a cure coming soon?

Brochure

After researching the disorder, make an informational pamphlet that could be given to patients.  The pamphlet must be no larger than 8.5 x 11 unfolded.  This brochure should be of professional quality. It must fully inform the reader of all issues pertaining to the muscular disorder. Again, use the questions provided to guide your research. Your brochure will be graded based on accuracy, completeness, and creativity. Visual representations (pictures, graphs, etc.) should be incorporated into the brochure.  Give credit for graphics you did not make.



Works Cited Page

You will need to prepare, on a separate sheet, a works cited page that identifies all sources used to make the brochure. At least four sources are required for this project. More than four is acceptable, and encouraged! (Be sure to use proper format; do not just list websites, list author, title, date, etc.). You works cited page should be in MLA format.
