  1. Literacy in the Content Areas “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” ― Frederick Douglass

  2. Read and ShareDirections 7-8 minutes. Purpose- Read and Decide on any vocabulary that may be difficult. (individual) Define-While you read think about what your definition of literacy is. (individual) Make 2 connections with the text and jot it on your paper. (individual) Decide and cite textual evidence that proves what you believe the author’s purpose was in writing this. (Individual) Partner work: you will discuss your answers with your partner. Then you both should decide on a main/central idea of this text. You must back it up with evidence from the text.

  3. Read and Share Hayes has a background in evolutionary biology (the study of natural biological changes in living populations), endocrinology (the study of hormones, chemicals that the body makes to direct the timing of important activities) and molecular biology (the study of chemicals essential to life). Combining his knowledge from these different fields, he created lab experiments to test what might be responsible for the drop in frog numbers. His experiments showed that some male frogs living in water contaminated by a common weed killer called atrazine had shrunken voice boxes. This made it hard for the males to call to potential mates. Some frogs exposed to atrazine had malformed reproductive organs that made it difficult or impossible for them to reproduce. And in some cases, frogs born male became female. They not only looked like females but could bear live young (although all their offspring were males). Today, Hayes is convinced these changes have to do with how atrazine interferes with frog hormones. Hormones are natural chemicals that all living animals produce in their bodies. The chemicals act as messengers, helping to control how cells and organs do their work. Hayes’ findings may be important not only for frogs but also for humans who produce many of the same hormones as frogs. The biologist’s studies helped prompt the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to re-examine how safe atrazine is for humans. - See more at: http://www.sciencenewsforkids.org/2012/08/collecting-data-can-be-dangerous-for-scientists-who-work-in-the-field/#sthash.pucCDLPm.dpuf
