Storyboard Text

  • Signpost: Numbers & Stats
  • "The hospitals admitted two hundred and sixty-nine cases, and one out of every five patients died" (46).
  • Signpost: Contrast/Contradiction
  • "Although it had been about a month since Carroll's illness, the bacteriologist was still feeble and unwell" (52).
  • "In the space of eight days Reed wrote a five-thousand-word report stating that his team had found evidence that clearly indicated that the bite of a mosquito could cause a case of yellow fever" (55-56).
  • Mindset: Growth
  • That is a lot of people that have gotten yellow fever! The author used this number to show how many people were being affected by the disease. 
  • Word Gap: Sanction
  • "Like William Osler, the famous nineteenth-century doctor and professor of medicine, Walter Reed thought that 'deliberately injecting a poison...into a human being, unless you obtain that man's sanction [permission], is...criminal'" (61).
  • The difference is that most people would probably be completely better after a whole month, while Carrol was still partially sick. This matters because Carroll cannot help with the research on yellow fever.
  • Summary: 5-7 Word Gist
  • Reed showed the growth mindset characteristic of more effort. If he didn't put in more effort and write the five-thousand-word report, he might not have been able to clearly prove that mosquitoes were the cause of yellow fever.
  • Book Club Question
  • Why might a lot of people believe that the thought of a mosquito causing a disease is absurd?
  • Definition: Official permission or approval for an action. Technical Term: No.
  • This week our summary strategy was: 5-7 word gist.
  • Reed is now proving the mosquito theory.
  • What might have made Dr. Lazear so frantic when writing down the notes in his notebook on his last few days?
