Contagion, Quarantines, and Cures in History: Case Study - the Ottoman Empire

Purpose/Connection to the Curriculum: This is a lesson that combines elements of Social Sciences (World History, Geography, Government), Science, and Language Arts.

What the Lesson Entails: Using the Eurasian frontier as a case study, this lesson will introduce students to the importance of disease transmission and containment in history – and their connection to world trade, military movements, population movements, and government social policies. On Day 1, students will be introduced to the topic through participation in a read-aloud script. On Day 2, they will work in small groups to evaluate a short primary source document and share their findings with the class. Then, students will research a topic related to public health. (These topics can be adapted to the specific course content that you teach.)
