Homeostasis Disruption: Diabetes
Step 1: Create a copy of the Anticipation Guide and share with your partners and with Jonathan. Before researching, read each statement and circle or highlight your level of agreement. Then, provide an explanation as to why.
Step 2: Use the following resources to answer the questions in your notebook.
- What is diabetes?
- Compare and contrast Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.
- What role does the pancreas play in regulating blood sugar?
- What factors contribute to a person's risk of developing diabetes?
Step 3: Return to the Anticipation Guide. Revisit each statement, and, based on your new understandings, determine if you still agree or disagree with each. Provide a piece of evidence from the source that supports your stance.
