Summer Assignments

Choose a book or a movie by Robin Cook to read or view.  Dr Robin Cook is considered to be the master of the medical thriller! Sometimes his books are classified as science fiction and sometimes as horror.  He does an enormous amount of research so all of his books contain good, exciting biology.  After reading  the book (preferably) or viewing the video, write a 3-4 page paper giving a summary and a critique of the book or video .  Be sure to emphasis the biological aspect and write in third person.


Contact a research scientist or field biologist in our area and conduct an interview about their current research.  Using your interview notes, write a newspaper article about this scientist. Include a picture of the scientist with your article for bonus points!

The two assignments will each count as a test grade and are due the first week of school.
