In-class writing assignment

Write a one- or two-paragraph article answering the following questions:
  • What caused the current nuclear situation in Japan?
  • What, in layman's terms, has been happening in the reactors?
  • What are the biggest dangers from this situation? Is a nuclear explosion possible?
  • How dangerous is this situation for the public in Japan and elsewhere (e.g., the U.S.)?
  • How many have died from the radiation? How many are expected to die?

Make sure your essay does more than simply list answers to these questions; be sure to include an introduction, conclusion, and appropriate transitional phrases.
