10TH GRADE: 9/19/12 Bellwork- Answer Wednesday’s bellwork question. Make sure to justify! Finish Monday’s bellwork discussion question if you didn’t finish yesterday. Bring me your signed Progress Report if you haven’t turned it in. FOCUS QUESTIONS FOR THE HOT ZONE Reading Log #1 How much information should the government keep from citizens? When is it acceptable or unacceptable to keep information from society? Reading Log #2 Keep a log of diseases from our unit of study (AIDS, Marburg, Ebola, etc.). For each one, critically analyze not only the power of the disease but also the impact it has had on society. This will be part of your culminating research project. READING LOG EXAMPLE: Keep a log of diseases from our unit of study (AIDS, Marburg, Ebola, etc.). For each one, critically analyze not only the power of the disease but also the impact it has had on society. Disease: Analysis of not only the power of the disease but also the impact it has had on society. Marburg Marburg kills 1 out of 4 people that contract it. The disease’s symptoms are powerful because it makes the victim bleed out of every orifice, slowly liquefying some organs, and this cannot be reversed. Because the incubation period is about ten days, Marburg can be a secret killer in those who have it. It took scientists about ten years to finally discover the virus and all it was capable of. HOW MUCH INFORMATION SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT KEEP FROM CITIZENS? WHEN IT IS ACCEPTABLE OR UNACCEPTABLE TO KEEP INFORMATION FROM SOCIETY? Quote Analysis “We could be in for a hellacious event….should the army get involved…we should notify the CDC. I don’t want them to be caught off guard…notify Virginia state health authorities.” (page 225-231) The government should keep information from citizens if the info is not verified or could be false. It should be a real, serious threat that is not up for debate. At this point in The Hot Zone, the scientists have proof of the Ebola outbreak. It is necessary to inform society so that extreme precaution can be taken and lives saved. THE HOT ZONE #1 JOURNAL Analyze the author’s purpose in the organizational structure of The Hot Zone. Think about why and how he organizes this book. (Be sure to explain your answer by referencing chapters.) “PROJECT EBOLA” EXPLICATION ACTIVITY You and your partner will be assigned a section of “Project Ebola” to read closely. Then, write an explication of your section that responds to the prompt. Prompt: How is the seriousness of working with a hot agent explained in “Project Ebola”? PART 1 Create a tree map that lists 4 people in Part 1 of The Hot Zone in which you describe the details of these different accounts. PART III JOURNAL- PRINCIPLES OF VETERINARY MEDICINE Should veterinarians maintain the code of ethics in all circumstances? Use at least 1 quotation from AVMA and one from The Hot Zone. Pages 248-250 and 321-322 ARGUMENT PROMPT Should there be limitations in animal testing? After reading The Hot Zone and articles about animal testing, write an argument that addresses the question and support your answer with evidence from the text. Be sure to address counterclaims. Rough draft due Thursday 10/25!
