        The Facts About Concussions

        In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, students watch videos featuring concussion victims and medical researchers to learn about the causes and symptoms of this serious type of brain injury. They also examine the challenges doctors face when diagnosing concussions and the technologies being developed to aid in these efforts. Students develop their literacy skills as they explore a science focus on personal health. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through videos and interactive activities. This resource is part of the Inspiring Middle School Literacy Collection.
