5E Instructional Model Plan:

Tuberculosis (Bacterial Infection) 5E Instructional Model Plan

Plan for teaching about bacterial infection and immunity using the 5E Instructional Model as a framework

8 - 10 days

Bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses are all examples of pathogens that cause infectious disease. In this 5E sequence, students explore pathogenic bacteria as a cause for illness, through a case study of Tuberculosis (TB). Students may review specific immunity as they discover how bacteria, such as the one that causes TB, disrupts homeostasis in the human body. Additionally, students explore the causes behind the rise of antibiotic resistance.
