Thank you for your comment.

Some of ReadWriteThink.org's lessons contain answer keys, but some do not. In this case, we chose not to publish an answer key for this worksheet to allow teachers the opportunity to treat it as an inquiry projects. If a particular answer is hard to find, the teacher and student can research it together.

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance - lisa

This is an excellent set of lessons. It will be a good addition to a unit I am currently doing that examines various epidemics through history. I believe I can do a decent job of answering most of the questions you pose, but I was wondering if an answer sheet is available. I would like to see your and/or other's thoughts on these questions. I am a social studies teacher delivering an integrated unit in an alternative school setting and need all the help I can get with some of the more complex language arts themes.

Thanks in advance, Mel Miller
