To Spray or Not to Spray?
This task is about evaluating ideas and information.
Read 'To Spray or Not to Spray?' (School Journal Part 4, Number 3, Learning Media, 2005).
Think carefully about what each of the 4 students in the article said about the spraying programme.
a) i) Which student do you think would most agree with the statement, "Spraying is safe"?
The student's name: I think Jessie
- My reasons for choosing this student are:
I chose Jessie because she had the most positive feedback about the aerial spraying
b) i) Which student do you think would most disagree with the statement, "Spraying is safe"?
The student's name: __shaun_____________
ii) My reasons for choosing this student are
I chose Shaun because he has the most negative feedback about the aerial spraying and he thinks it is not safe
c) MAF says, "When spray is applied correctly, it does not harm people, animals, plants or insects except PAM caterpillars." Do you believe MAF? Collect as much evidence as you can from the whole text to support your view.I dont believe MAF because it says that if it is applied DIRECTLY on your skin it will cause minor skin nose and throat irritation. It also doesn't say if it is environmentally friendly. If its not toxic and water soluble to people then why do they ADVISE you to close your windows. Why dont they tell the ingredients in the spray. I think they should stop the aerial spraying once and for all because it hasnt been proven effective ansd hasnt been approved by the ministry of health.
