In this activity, students are asked to think about how they would react if a disease, such as the Plague or Black Death, were to arrive in their city.
There is a sheet of instructions that provides the requirements for this writing activity. This includes a minimum of 5 journal entries spanning 2-4 weeks. They are asked to focus on a different aspect of the epidemic every journal entry. A few examples are provided such as: military response, availability of food and water, quarantine, effects on the healthcare system and sanitation systems. There is an option to create a movie in iMovie that the students can choose over a written journal and there are specifications that are included for this option as well.
Students have always responded well to this activity and I have received a lot of positive feedback!
