In conclusion, then, we have seen how a study of the Persian Gulf War sydrome has afforded an excellent opportunity to create a unit that serves many puposes: It has been an opportunity for students to study a war (and its aftermath) that is relevant to them because of its recent nature. It has given students an opportunity to examine pieces of evidence from the war and its subsequent medical effect, along with comments from government officials and critics, in order to encourage them to form their own conclusions. Furthermore, the process of preparing for and engaging in a debate has enabled my students to communite their findings persuasively, in front of an audience of peers.
