Students had the option of either completing their next reading guide (The Hot Zone Reading Guide 6) or answering questions about a podcast (Radiolab Patient Zero Podcast Questions). Whichever one you didn’t do in class is for homework.

We began today by talking about The Hot Zone. Then students read an article about metaphors in science writing, and practiced writing their own explanations of scientific concepts using non-literal comparisons.
