RCHK Year 9 Disease Wiki


Welcome to a place where we can collaborate and organize resources that will help us to better understand a variety of diseases.


Your Task!
Click on the "New Page" button in the upper left to add your disease. Name your page according to the disease that you are investigating. To edit this page, you must first click on the edit page button shown above right. To save changes, just hit the Save button. If you do something on accident, please simply hit the Cancel button and your changes will not be saved. Please include your name on the disease page itself, NOT on the name of your page. Your disease wiki page must include the following:

1) The common and scientific name of the disease.
2) What causes it? How is it transmitted?
3) What are the symptoms? How long do they last? Is it deadly?
4) Can it be cured? If so, how? If not, is there any way that we can at least treat it?
Note: A properly done page must have sources referenced at the bottom.


Best Wiki Contest!
To spice things up a bit, we will be having a best wiki contest, with you (students) all getting a vote. You may only vote for one page total, but it may be chosen from any of the pages here, even if that person is not from your class. You may not vote for yourself. There will be prizes for first, second, and third.
To pick the Best Overall Page, you should consider three major things (starting from the most important):
1. Is it informative? – Does it clearly answer the questions asked?
2. Is it aesthetically pleasing? – Does it look good?
3. Is it creative? – Does it have interesting content displayed in a creative way?
