We reviewed the notes taken the previous day and assessed what we knew about Europe and America prior to Columbus’s arrival in 1492. Then we resumed watching the documentary and note taking.


We worked on close-reading strategies by doing the following activity:

Close-read section 2.1 for any information that will answer the following question: “How did John Snow use a map to discover how the disease cholera was spread?”

How do we do this?

To answer this, ask yourself: What clues or key words should I look for to help me find the answer?

disease, cholera, Snow, map, spread

• Which paragraphs do we find these words?

• Which sentences explain the spread of the disease?

• Which sentences show John Snow using a map?

Work together with a partner or as a group to answer this question. Explain your answer as a storyboard.
