We started the class with a close reading of the following: new-germ-theory
We then answered the following 4 questions of the left side of our notebook:
What did scientists and doctors originally believe to be the cause of peptic ulcers and hardening of the arteries?
Why did scientists and doctors change their minds about what causes peptic ulcers and hardening of the arteries?
Why were scientists and doctors so reluctant to accept that bacteria caused the diseases?
If Pasteur had not proposed the germ theory would bacteria have ever been identified as the cause of so many diseases?
Next we watch these two video clips and answered the questions (look above video link) on the right side of our notebooks:
Next, student partners researched a theory using the laptops: researching-a-theory
If you missed class just do climate change or gravitational theory.
