Writing Assignment 2 Due Wednesday March 18.
I’m studying and need help with a Biology question to help me learn.
The article should report on a physiology topic or research
. The article may be focused on a
single research finding or it can be a generalized summary. The article should be less than one
year old and provided to your instructor when the report is submitted. A URL should be included
in the Heading if using a web-based newspaper.
Examples of sources which are NOT
acceptable include Scientific American, Nature, National Geographic, etc. These are
excellent publications, but they do not cover current events.
Method and Product:
Using a newspaper article with a topic focused on some aspect of physiology, develop an
introduction to one of the chapters, “Emerging Concept,” “Try It,” or a “Running Problem” for
your text. Put yourself in the place of an editor of the next edition of the text. You want to add
topics which are current and/or of interest to the reader. The topic you choose should be one
that fits into the text and part of your assignment involves finding a good location for your
section. Make it interesting! Including quotes from or information about the scientists has been
a good tactic for students.
