Task Description: This task asks students to write an information/explanatory report demonstrating what they learned from an informational text. Students will demonstrate their understanding of the main idea of the text - not all bugs are bad - by retelling key details. This task is embedded in a unit that introduces students to informational texts as sources of information, or ŇteachersÓ that we can learn from. After spending time exploring nonfiction texts, through read alouds as well as collaborative and independent research, students will demonstrate their understanding by writing a book about what theyŐve learned from a nonfiction read aloud. The unit length is approximately 3 weeks, depending on studentsŐ incoming familiarity with nonfiction, and can be extended with enrichment activities. Less

Students will formulate a hypothesis about the relationship (linear, direct, indirect, etc.) between the distance a drop of blood falls and the diameter of the splatter it makes. To test their hypothesis, the students will work collaboratively to make blood droplets, on paper, from different heights. After graphing droplet diameter and height using a spreadsheet program, individual students will evaluate their hypothesis. Students will use their graphed data to: 1) write an equation for the mathematical relationship of droplet diameter and height. 2) interpolate the height from which a blood droplet made by someone else was dropped. The students will compare data from different groups to determine possible sources for differences. Less

100,000,000 Guinea Pigs : The Dangers of Consumption

In 1927, responding to the seemingly overpowering claims of advertisers and mass marketers, engineer Frederick Schlink and economist Stuart Chase published Your Money's Worth, which argued for an "extension of the principle of buying goods according to impartial scientific tests rather than according to the fanfare and triumphs of higher salesmanship." Your Money's Worth became an instant best-seller, and the authors organized Consumers' Research, a testing bureau that provided information and published product tests in a new magazine, Consumers' Research Bulletin. The 1929 stock market crash heightened suspicion of consumer capitalism, and the magazine had 42,000 subscribers by 1932. In 1933, Schlink and Arthur Kallet (executive secretary of Consumers' Research) published 100,000,000 Guinea Pigs: Dangers in Everyday Foods, Drugs, and Cosmetics. The book struck a responsive chord in depression-era America--it went through thirteen printings in its first six months and became one of the best-selling books of the decade. The book's first chapter ("The Great American Guinea Pig"), gave a flavor of their vigorous arguments. Less

Writing about gender roles of the 1950s, Betty Friedan once defined the "suburban housewife" as "the dream image of the young American woman." Just as prescriptive literature of the 19th century geared to the middling classes emphasized women's "true" place in society as mother and wife, the 1950s saw an ideal perpetuated in books, magazines, movies, television, songs, and ads that depicted the white, middle-class woman fulfilled only by a happy marriage. The following article from a popular magazine of 1960 offered a sociological survey of the more than one-third of adult American women whose lives did not fit this domestic norm. Based on interviews with single, divorced, and widowed women, and a host of "experts", the author detailed the "frenzied" mating efforts of women who tried, but failed, to marry as well as the adverse psychological effects of being single. Despite the evidence presented that unmarried women could be happy--sometimes even happier than their married counterparts--the article's rhetorical emphasis on "frantic hordes of unwed women" relentlessly searching for husbands perpetrated a stereotypical depiction at odds with some of the statistics and testimonies quoted.

"Bring Sex Out of the Closet of Fear": A Psychologist Argues that Sex Education Can Save the American Family

Alfred C. Kinsey published his pathbreaking research on sexual behavior in 1948 and 1953, reporting that premarital and extramarital sexual activity was not uncommon in American life. In fact, Kinsey argued, it had been part of a long-term shift beginning in the 1910s. Alarmed critics in the popular press attacked the study as a threat to the stability of the American family. In an era during which the family symbolized a retreat from Cold War and atomic age political and social tensions, some in the scientific community joined religious figures and cultural commentators in an ideological battle to strengthen the traditional domestic realm. In the following report in the popular magazine Collier's, a psychology professor characterized his research study as a follow-up to Kinsey that dealt with knowledge and attitudes about sex. Unlike Kinsey's work, however, this report explicitly served as a prescriptive guide--telling Americans how to avoid infidelity, escape divorce, and gain marital happiness through sex education. In attempting to change so-called "incorrect" attitudes, it presented as fact conclusions not warranted by the evidence offered-- that most men wanted wives who were not disinterested in sex but didn't and flaunt it either or that ultimately "the best sex is in marriage." In presenting these beliefs as facts, the report revealed ingrained cultural attitudes at odds with ideals of scientific objectivity. These values, however, conformed with efforts to use potentially disrupting sex research findings to strengthen the one socially approved channel for sexual behavior--marriage. Less
