n this WebQuest, students investigate the global challenge of disease prevention – including both communicable (infectious) and noncommunicable (chronic) diseases. Students will identify the distinguishing features of communicable and noncommunicable diseases, and give examples of diseases in each category. They will investigate the domestic and global impacts of disease, and learn about some of the strategies that Peace Corps Volunteers are using to help reduce the risk of communicable and noncommunicable diseases in their host communities. CCSS: W.9-10.3 , W.9-10.7
