Description

Overview:
This unit includes 5 lessons that culminate in students using scientific inquiry to create a group presentation discussing childhood vaccination. Using inquiry-focused reading, a video, and activities, students will learn how to formulate a conclusion based on scientific evidence. Students will research and choose additional texts to support their conclusions. When choosing additional sources, students are required to consider the questions: Is the information I am using good science? Is it a reliable source? The unit includes discussing the Wakefield Study as an example of poor scientific research and how poor research can spread inaccurate information. Students will need to include quoted information to support their conclusions and a MLA Works cited page

Students will watch a documentary, NOVA: Vaccines-Calling the Shots. Before viewing each section , students will read a supplementary essay. Students will answer and discuss the questions that accompany each video segment and essay. Using their discussions and answers, each group will devise their own set of two questions for each segment. They will answer and defend their conclusions using fact based research.
