Covid has a Great Great Great Grandmother?

“Fatal Fever Tracking Down Typhoid Mary” is written by Gail Jarrow.  Here is an overview of how they tracked where typhoid had come from and how people found out about how the sickness traveled around and killed lots of people.

“Fatal Fever Tracking Down Typhoid Mary” by Gail Jarrow talks about the outbreak in 1907 of typhoid fever and “Typhoid Mary”. This book explains how healthy people can still carry bad diseases and infect other people. Healthy people can still carry bad diseases because the victims of typhoid fever can become immune to typhoid.  The meaning of this book is that they want people to know how important it is to follow and cooperate with the government regulations because they are studying the diseases and finding a cure. In this day we are living in a pandemic and still, we have people who do not listen or even do not even care about what the government has to say.

I really recommend this book because first students can learn about the the1907 outbreak of typhoid fever in this book there is a perfect historical perspective of the Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic that is happening in our world today, and also in this book, there is a glossary, timeline, and a list of well-known typhoid sufferers and victims so people can learn a lot in this book. I learned that not only we need to listen to government regulations, but we also have to beware of what we do and what we have in our own bodies.

Something I learned in this unit is if I really concentrate to read non-fiction books and read the text, I will gain a deeper understanding of the book’s meaning and I can learn new and more stuff with just reading a book. Before I use to think that reading non-fiction books were lame and boring but, now I think it is really interesting and can teach me things.

Do the Boxers Deserve a Bad Reputation?

The boxers do not deserve a bad reputation.According a local historian d that the Boxers lived a dangerous existence in the foreign legations in Beijing, so they decided to kill or attack the Boxers, but because the Boxers were undercover the British people killed lots of innocent people living in Beijing at that time. The Boxers do not deserve a bad reputation because the Boxers were not the people who started the war. The foreigners after the opium wars pushed their way into China and started to spread their own religions and beliefs, then to start claiming parts of China heirs. In this war, the Boxers were trying to protect their homeland, why they used such violence was because talking it out would not work cause the British and the foreigners would not listen.

HELENa daughter of nedar by Gracie

This characterization magazine poster was based on the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, I choose Helena because she was a really easy one to write about. The photo I used for this magazine poster was a really beautiful photo of Helena, why I choose this photo was because she said that she was not as beautiful as Hermia, but in this photo, you can see that is very pretty. I feel like the quote that I used was really good because it gives me a good vibe when I hear it.

Make the Better Choice

Everything works around you they do that for a reason, so do you so try to take a step of responsibility. The main character “the little girl” from the storyThe Little Girl Who Would Not Work”, does not like to work and never even thought about getting a job. But when one day she went to go ask the squirrels, bees, ants, and flowers if they worked and they all said yes. after the little girl went around to ask, she started to take responsibility for herself by making a choice of to get a job or not. The big idea of the story was responsibility and self-worth.

In the story “The Little Girl Who Would Not Work”, by, Carolyn Sherwin Bailey, the author believes that responsibility is really important in life because it can help you go further in life.  During the story, the main character asked two animals if they do work. After the two animals answered her question, she started to think about it: “‘the girl walked along very slowly, for she was thinking”’ (Bailey 1).  The author showed that there was something up her mind, so she was walking slowly and for what was on her mind. She was thinking about if it was better to get a job and work from now on or just play and not do anything forever. As the story continues the girl said to her mother, “‘mother the squirrels and the bees and the ants and the flowers all work…I want some work to do”’ (Baily 2). When the little girl says to her mother about how she wants to do some work you can see that she takes responsibility for herself and she makes a choice of doing something that can help her get through life, and she had this thought because she noticed that everything around her has a job and they work every day for a purpose. In conclusion, you have to give yourself a push into things that are important and have a reason to be, just try.
