ChixFix Scenario: Antibiotic Resistance
I give the first two pages to students in pairs, with some pairs being
the chicken farmers, and others being the scientists. They must put
their names on the papers, of course. Then I have them get together in
groups of 4. The chicken farmers explain to the scientists what they’ve
found, and the scientists must write out a concise statement of those
findings. Then the scientists explain to the chicken farmers what they
found, and the chicken farmers must write out a concise statement of
those findings. Note that the 4-person page has places for all 4 names,
with numbers 1-4 for them.
Then I give them the last page. Their “identity” is determined by which
number their name is on the prior page. This part gets fun.
