Wednesday, March 28

In class today, I announced that you will have a multiple-choice exam (25 questions) this upcoming Monday over “The Ebola Fighters.” (Time 2014 Person of the Year – The Ebola Fighters). You MUST read an annotate that article before class on Monday, and you must bring it with you to class — I will not have extra copies for you, and you will not be able to answer the questions without it. The test will also assess your understanding of the other nonfiction texts we have read during this unit (The Hot Zone, The Most Terrifying Thing About Ebola, Wild Flavor, and The Masque of the Red Death).

With the rest of the period, students began another expository essay over how people can stop epidemics — please come get paper copies of those materials from the classroom.
