Module 3 Discussion: Discuss and Debate
Overview
After exploring the content for this module, you should be ready to discuss the topics at a deeper level with your classmates. Your task is to explore how the structure of the integumentary and skeletal systems contribute to their role as the body’s first line of defense.
You should spend approximately 4 hours on this assignment.
Instructions
Choose one specific location on the body (e.g., hand, thigh, abdomen, etc.) and respond to the following in a post of at least 300 words:
Describe the structure of each layer of skin at your chosen location and how it is related to its specific function at that location.
Describe how the structure of skin appendages present at your chosen location is adapted for its given function.
What joints are present in your chosen location? Describe the structure of the joint(s) and associated bones and other structures. What function does this joint perform?
Respond to at least 2 of your peers. In each of your response posts, include a link to a resource from a scientific journal that you think is excellent and provides information about homeostatic imbalances in either of the two organ systems discussed in this module.
First, directly copy a paragraph or excerpt from the chosen source that you think enhances your peer’s post.
Next, paraphrase and summarize the information from the paragraph you copied using your own words.
You should also explain why or how the information enhances or extends the information provided. See the Grading and Evaluation section in the Syllabus module for links to research databases at the CCCOnline Library.
Consult the resources that are posted to your own post and explain why each resource is or isn’t a valid resource.
All references must be cited using APA Style format. Please refer to the CCCOnline APA Citation Toolkit.

You have learned how to distinguish scholarly from popular sources of informatio

You have learned how to distinguish scholarly from popular sources of information, evaluate the scholarly value of information, search databases, how to tell the difference between a research and review article, and how to properly site scholarly articles. To complete the circle of learning you are going to find some additional information regarding your insect Order
To help you with your investigation I am providing a couple of links to resources that provide reliable information about insects
UF Featured Creatures This site profiles insects, nematodes, and other organisms, and contains peer-reviewed information.
EOL Encyclopedia of Life This site is a reliable source of information on many of the life-forms on earth
Create a Fact Sheet that provides some interesting and valuable information about your insect Order: Due by 10 pm on 7/9/22
Provide the scientific Order name for your collected insect
Include your hand drawn image of the insect you identified to Order.
Identify on the figure and then list (in order) the physical characteristics used to identify the insect Order.
List at least 3 common names of insects in the Order. Make sure to include the common name for the insect you collected and identified to Order. Cite your sources. NOTE: Make sure you are using the AMA format (there is a link below that will take you to a AMA citation style guide)
Describe a habitat of your insect Order. Cite your sources
Describe a diet of your insect Order. Cite your sources
Describe 1-2 additional interesting facts or traits of your insect Order. Cite your sources
Interesting facts could include:
impact on human (or animal) health (does it spread diseased).
do humans eat the insect for food.
how does Wolbachia affect its reproduction?
or any other factual item you came across in your investigation.
make sure that this unique trait is NOT a morphological trait or physical characteristic that helped you to identify your insect. For example: if you needed to identify the coiled mouthparts of your Lepidopteran sample in the dichotomous key, you cannot express that as an interesting fact
Create a bibliography (list of citations) of the sources you used to gather this information. Make sure to use proper AMA citation formats. Refer to the AMA style guide for assistance. Also make sure to include the citation for the research article and review article you found previously.
When you are finished creating the fact sheet, upload the document to the Fact Sheet dropbox. This is due by 10 pm on 7/9/22

Searching for scholarly journal articles. Using the resources that you have been

Searching for scholarly journal articles.
Using the resources that you have been introduce to previously, find one research article and one review article about your insect Order. The goal is to find something interesting about the insect Order. Things of interest could be related to:
where is the insect Order found,
its life cycle,
impact on human health (does it spread diseased),
what does it eats (and does it destroy crops in the process),
do humans eat the insect for food,
how does Wolbachia affect its reproduction. etc.?
This list of questions is endless…remember gross sells. Think about search terms, Boolean logic (e.g., conjunctions), and filters you might use to target your search to get the answers you are looking to find.
Once you identified your two articles (one research and one review), read the abstracts and/or introductions of the articles you selected. You will not understand everything that you read in the articles (that is ok because I am not familiar with everything I read in a scholarly article either), but try your best to get the big picture.
Make citations for your selected scholarly articles
Life science journals DO NOT adhere to a common citation formats, like AMA, APA or MLA. Therefore, authors must consult the “instructions to authors” section provided by each journal to determine the correct citation for­mat required by that journal. In this course we will use the AMA style of citations. Consult this AMA style guide on how to construct proper journal citations for the variety of sources you may encounter when you learn more about your insect Order.
Below are some examples on how to cite journal articles. You must refer to the AMA style guide to determine how to properly cite journal articles that have more than one author.
General AMA Journal Citation Format
Author Last Name, First Initial. Article Title. Journal Title abbreviation. Year; Volume number(issue number): Page numbers.
Print Journal Article example
Rainier S, Thomas D, and Tokarz D. Myofibrillogenesis regulator 1 gene mutations cause paroxysmal dystonic choreoathetosis. Arch Neurol. 2004;61(7):1025-1029.
Online Journal Article example: (Include page numbers if article is also available in print. See below)
Duchin JS. Can preparedness for biological terrorism save us from pertussis? Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2004;158(2):106-107. http://archpedi.ama assn.org/cgi/content/full/158/2/106. Accessed June 1, 2004.
Use the AMA style guide to assist you as you cite journal articles, websites, books, book chapters, and other sources for your poster.
Record your two citations into the Module 5 Activities Assignment activity. You have finished all of your Module 05 activities so upload your completed Module 5 Activities Assignment into the appropriate Dropbox folder. You must complete and submit this assignment by 10 pm Wednesday 7/6/22.

BIOL 1107L Oreske TED Talk Questions Dr. Oreskes’ TED Talk video/audio questions

BIOL 1107L
Oreske TED Talk Questions
Dr. Oreskes’ TED Talk video/audio questions
1. According to Dr. Orekes the scientific method is not a sufficient
reason to say that science has its roots in truth. Why?
2. How do scientists decide what is right and wrong?
3. How do scientists know they have reached a consensus?
4. Why is it important that a consensus be reached?
5. Why is it a good thing if it turns out a scientific paper is wrong?
6. Why isn’t the fact that scientific paper is wrong evidence that
science is inaccurate?
7. Why is it that nothing in science is “an article of faith”?
8. What does science continually do that prevents an “article of
faith” from arising?
9. Give an example of when a scientific consensus changed.
10. In her TED Talk Dr. Oreskes discusses how trusting our cars is the
same reason we should trust scientists, what connection is she
making between trust in cars and trust in scientists? In your
answer discuss how automobiles became more reliable, and who
was responsible for this evolution. Also discuss how this applies to
science and the development of a scientific concensus.
