        Solving a Public Health Problem

        In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, students watch videos about a real-life disease outbreak in New York City and learn about the step-by-step process public health workers use in investigating the cause of similar outbreaks. Students develop their literacy skills as they explore a science focus on public health. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through videos and interactive activities. This resource is part of the Inspiring Middle School Literacy Collection.
