Instructions for the Outbreak.



In this activity you and a team of epidemiologists will be tracking a disease in a local community.  Using an online virtual program each day you will be given a set of questions to investigate, material to discuss and a plan to disseminate to deal with the outbreak.   After 2-3 days of research your team will either create a recorded news broadcast (ie. using the green screen in the LMC or personal camera) or a newspaper article describing the events that took place in the small community.  You will inform your audience about the facts that were collected and how your team eradicated the disease. 

Each day's completed form will be graded based on the project rubric.  Then the final product of newspaper article or news video cast will be a project grade at the end of the outbreak.
