Physiology and Disease students at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in Aurora employ inquiry driven activities to improve their understanding and articulation of the discipline. After covering the major physiological concepts for the semester, a novel assessment has been introduced as the final project in the class to help integrate the concepts and promote student creativity and learning. Students are asked to create and present several skits on the history of physiology for specific time periods ranging from times before Christ to the 21st century.
