november 23 – december 3 H u m a n i t i e s
MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE A DIFFERENT TOPIC, NOT SOMETHING YOU HAVE DONE PREVIOUSLY. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU CHOSE WILDFIRES BEFORE, THEN CHOOSE SOMETHING ELSE (LIKE TORNADOES) THIS TIME.
By Thursday at 11:59 PM, post your initial response including the items designated below:
In this class, we are interested in learning about natural phenomena. Find a current event news article that examines something that is affecting nature or is happening in nature, here on Earth. For example, you might read an article about ice sheets shrinking, or how a hurricane set a record for top wind speeds. There are many possibilities.
Avoid articles that are not about nature (for example, a political article on voting, or a domestic violence incident). Avoid articles that are about other worlds (for example, Jupiter or the Moon). The point is, we want to explore and understand natural components and processes here on Earth in this class as the semester progresses. Keep the subject matter relevant to this class!
This is a substantial assignment. Spend some time on it, and make it meaningful.
The article you choose MUST be current (hence, “current event”), meaning the date it was written by the author must be from this week only: November 23 –December 3.
Make sure you address each of the following in your initial post (address the items in this order below, and make sure to put the words “Title of Article”, etc. so it is easy to follow):
Title of article:
Date of article (NOT the date you accessed it):
Summary (at least 5 sentences in YOUR own words):
What did you think was especially interesting about this article to make you choose it (be serious and make it meaningful to others; do NOT say “because it was the first one I found”, etc.)
By Sunday at 11:59 PM, reply to at least two classmates’ posts. Keep in mind the “Discussion Directions” and “Discussion Rubric”. Make sure your replies are several complete sentences in length. Follow the “Netiquette Ground Rules”.
