Today we will be reading an article about the response to the Ebola crisis two years ago and answering some multiple choice questions (the-most-terrifying-thing-about-ebola-slate-article). As I told you yesterday, we will have a multiple choice critical reading exam on Monday over a lengthy article about the people who put their lives on the line in the Ebola crisis (time-2014-person-of-the-year-the-ebola-fighters). I will give you a paper copy of the article on Friday – you will take it home and annotate it (you won’t have a reading guide over the weekend), and you may use it on the exam on Monday.

Tomorrow (Friday), we’re going to be listening to a podcast, so if you would rather listen independently instead of having me play it for the whole class, please remember to bring a listening device.
