1. Pick a specific antibiotic (e.g. penicillin and tetracycline), do a little research on it and explain to the class how it targets bacterial cells and not eukaryotic cells (i.e. why does it harm bacteria but does not harm us?). This is often linked to antibiotics mechanism of action.
2. Knowing what you do now about antibiotics and antibiotic resistance, have you or someone you know ever been given an antibiotic by a doctor when perhaps you should not have been given one? What was the outcome?
3. Given how prevalent antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers are today, do you think the use of antibacterial soaps can contribute to the antibiotic resistance problem? Give some support for your opinion. Do you use these products in your house or at work? To help you with this do some research on how these products work before answering.
