Compare and Contrast Remote Learning - Covid in the 2020s vs Polio in the 1930s

Read the newspaper article from "The Conversation," written by Katherine A. Foss. You can press play to hear the audio of the article! After reading, fill in the Venn diagram with similarities and differences you notice between how life changed during the polio outbreak and how life is now that we are one year into the Covid pandemic. Try to least at least three items in each part of the diagram. This article was originally published on - https://theconversation.com/how-much-of-a-difference-does-the-number-of-kids-in-a-classroom-make-125703.
