Module 4

This section of the web site provides the viewer with the information needed to teach the five investigations that comprise Module 4.

The purpose of these investigations is to teach students to answer the fourth Essential Question:

What should individuals and societies do when preventable causes of disease are found?

And, in learning to answer this question, develop the fourth Enduring Understanding:

When a causal association has been identified, decisions about possible disease prevention strategies are based on more than the scientific evidence. Given competing values, social, economic, and political factors must also be considered.



   The five investigations are:

Investigation 4-1:   Risk Perception
Investigation 4-2:   Acceptable Risk
Investigation 4-3:   Acceptable Risk Considerations
Investigation 4-4:   Risk Management Strategies
Investigation 4-5:   Concept Connections
