Instructions
Perform a quick Internet search, using Google or another major search engine. Select a search
term related to nutrition science (for example, diet, organic, sodium) and see what kind of
results you receive. When considering a term to select, think about single words rather than
phrases. In some cases your search term may contain two words (for example, unsaturated fat).
Avoid phrases like “which diet will help me lose weight the fastest” or “top 10 foods to make me
healthy.”
Write a short essay (at least 250 words), using complete paragraphs and appropriate
organization. Avoid incomplete sentences or bulleted lists (except for your search term and how
many results were obtained). Check your spelling and grammar before submitting. References
are required in APA format.

 

Please provide the following information (listed in bulleted form):
your search term
how many results you obtained
Then review some of these sources, going no further than three pages into the search result.
Critically evaluate the websites you have selected. Find one website that you consider a
reliable/credible source and one that you consider false, misleading, or non-factual. Keep in
mind that when searching for credible sources you should also determine if your source would
be appropriate to use as a scholarly reference (to support your discussions and homework
assignments). Please provide the following for BOTH the credible and non-credible choices:
the name of the website and the link
the author or group providing this information
Is this a reliable/credible source? If so, how do you know? OR Is this a non-credible source? If
so, how do you know?
What was the hardest part about sifting through nutrition information?

Assignment 1: Curriculum Inception

Scenario for Assignments 1-3
Assume that you are the curriculum designer for a school district. The school board has requested that several teams develop proposals for new curricula to meet newly established state standards. You and your team must develop the first proposal to provide as a pilot or model for the other teams. You have to first identify a specific curriculum area not currently used in the school district that would greatly benefit the students in the district. Use the Internet or the Strayer Library as well as your textbook to develop a pilot curriculum for a specific discipline area (reading, math, science, etc.) or grade level (K-12) at a local school district.
Assignment 1: Curriculum Inception
Due Week 3 and worth 180 points

THIS IS THE PROFESSOR FEEDBACK FROM THE JOURNAL YOU WROTE
 
Potential Problem #1: The topic of anti depressants is a very viable topic and you will have no problem with finding research on this topic.  I suggest that you start to find key points for this argument and counterarguments through the research.
Potential Problem #2: The topic of the effectiveness of tobacco cessation is another viable.  You will have plenty of sources at your disposal.  Just start to find the key points and the counterarguments.
Importance of Persuasion:
You discussed the importance of persuasion.  This will help you to find a goal for the argument and the paper. You will have to address this in your writing notes assignment.
Audience: You have identified your audience for your topics.  Identifying your audience helps you to develop your key points, your counterarguments, and your evidence because you can assess the concerns of the audience who might be your readers.
Articulation of Response:

Craft elements are the tools that writers use to build works of fiction/poetry, just as other types of artists use paint, clay, wood, metal, concrete,

Craft elements refer to the building blocks of fiction/poetry. They include things like plot, character, point of view, imagery, rhyme, rhythm, meter, etc. Craft elements are the tools that writers use to build works of fiction/poetry, just as other types of artists use paint, clay, wood, metal, concrete, and even digital media to build creations for the sake of art, communication, or business. Creators use the tools of their craft to guide their audiences to focus on what’s most important in their creations. So, as readers of fiction/poetry, it’s worthwhile to ask how authors construct their creative work, and why they make their craft-related choices. And as creators ourselves, it’s crucial to consider how we can/should use the craft tools we have to construct our fiction/poetry.
In a previous modules, we learned about plot, character, setting, rhyme, rhythm, and meter. Now let’s look at how writers use point of view.

  • Point of View Links to an external site.(handout)
  • Shirley Jackson, The LotteryLinks to an external site. Links to an external site.
  • Links to an external site.Lorrie Moore, The Kid’s Guide to DivorceLinks to an external site.

SECOND, post your responses on the following items below:

  1. What point of view (POV) are these two stories told from?
  2. Why do you think the authors chose these POVs? (Consider: Why are these POVs effective/appropriate for these stories? How might the stories change if the authors had chosen different POVs?)

THIRD,  post at least ONE thoughtful response to a classmates’ original post.
FOURTH, Think long and hard about your Point of View options in your own work–how might you use POV? What are the advantages/disadvantages to each option? Which option best suits your fiction/poetry? Apply your learning to your own work!
Note from Michelle: on the surface, the first question might seem tricky, but take a look at the pronouns used most often.  That should help!  And by the way, resist the urge to just Google ithe answer. Read the stories yourself and figure it out on your own so you can grow your brain. And as before, I’m locking this so you can’t see your classmates’ posts until you’ve posted your own first.  That’ll help you to resist self-doubt, too.

“Your client was the beneficiary of an annuity contract purchased by her stepmother.

ccounting 405-110 research problem 1 chapter 4 prepare two tax file memorandums and client letter” “Your client was the beneficiary of an annuity contract purchased by her stepmother. When the stepmother died, the insurance company paid the client $400,000 and sent her a form 1099 indicating that the taxable portion was $50,000. However, according to the client, her father fraudulently convinced her that he was the intended beneficiary. She gave her father a check equal to the amount she had received from the insurance company. She did not report any of the annuity proceeds in her income tax return. She later discovered the fraud and filed a lawsuit to collect from her father. The IRS has examined your client’s return and has taken the position that she must include the $50,000 in her gross income. Prepare two tax file memorandums and a client letter.” “You need to cite court cases to support your conclusions if they are available as IRS rules and regulations are changed by court interpretation.”Tax File Memorandum number one (1) will memorialize the facts from the client and will state the issues in a separate paragraph entitled ISSUES :.( Figure 2.6 in the text)Tax File Memorandum number two (2) will summarize your research, support your conclusion, and state your conclusion. (Figure 2.7 in the text)The Client Letter will inform the client of your decision and the major reasons why you reached your conclusion. (Figure 2.8 in the text)You must attach the brief description of each source you are citing in your conclusion.Most research problems will have more than 4 or 5 valid sources cited.Research which is too brief will most often lead to an erroneous conclusion or a conclusion which cannot be maintained during an IRS audit.All memorandums and client letters must be in well thought out and clear sentences with accurate spelling.”

Write a researched argument about an issue affecting your future career field, your major field, or your community, or focus on an issue described in the readings you’ve done from the book.

Write a researched argument about an issue affecting your future career field, your major field, or your community, or focus on an issue described in the readings you’ve done from the book. And also the draft of it. This paper is your own argument, but you should take into account what you’ve learned during this course:  begin by showing the conversation your paper is responding to (“they say,” which should include clear positions on the topic), have a clear statement of your own argument about the issue (“I say”), include quotes and incorporate them smoothly (both in the “they say” and “I say” paragraphs), point out possible objections to your argument, use appropriate transitions, and explain why the issue matters (so what? who cares?).  You must use at least 5 sources and at least 2 must be from academic peer reviewed journals.  You should also give your argument a clear title at the beginning of your essay. And don’t forget there are two things that you have to submit, one is the draft and another one is the paper.
Recommended structure:  For this paper you have 5-6 pages to work with and you need to include, in effect, five major parts:
Introduction: includes an overview of the conversation (names of key authors and the issues you’re bringing up), a brief statement of your argument (or thesis statement), and a brief explanation of why your argument matters
summary of 2 or 3 authors or arguments, with quotes as evidence
summary of how they agree/disagree; provide quotes if necessary
your own opinion and your reasons for your opinion (which includes at least one naysayer); provide quotes as evidence
Conclusion: includes a return sentence, a restatement of your argument, and a developed explanation of why your argument matters
Note that these are five parts, not paragraphs (exceptions: the introduction and the conclusion are usually one paragraph each).  What could this look like?  Here’s an example:  After the brief introductory paragraph (where you introduce your topic, an overview of the conversation you’re entering, a sense of your argument and briefly why your argument matters), you might have a summary of one author (1 paragraph), then a summary of the second author (1 paragraph), and a summary of another author or position (1 paragraph).  Then you might have one paragraph that explains how they agree or disagree (though you can already allude to that in the summary paragraphs through phrases like “Unlike X, Y asserts that…”).  Note that the paragraph that explains how the authors or arguments agree or disagree is still “they say,” since you’re not yet putting forward your own opinion on the issues.  At that point you’ll have written about 3 pages.  Then you write your own argument (“I say”) in relation to the conversation you’ve set up (about two pages).  At that point you’ve written about 5 pages.  Then you end with a concluding paragraph, where you wrap it up with a return sentence and again explain why it matters. Keep in mind that this way of structuring your argument is only a suggestion; it doesn’t have to be exactly like that.  But hopefully this gives you an idea of what this kind of paper could look like.Grading Guide:  I will grade your MWP3 according to the following grading guide.  Use this guide when writing your paper.Introduction (10 points)Includes an overview of the conversation (names of key authors and the issues you’re bringing up), clear “I say” statement (thesis) placed in relation to authors, and a brief explanation of why your argument matters”They say” (20 points):  Shows conversation paper is responding toSummary includes basic information about authors as well as the full title of essays; summaries do not agree or disagree with authors (summaries inhabit worldview); summaries use sophisticated signal verbs to summarize authors’ points; no listing or “closest cliché” (pp. 31, 35, 33)Quoting (20 points): Uses quotes correctly and appropriatelyQuotes used to present “proof of evidence” (p. 42) in summary of authors’ arguments — Quotes should not be “orphans” (p. 43) — Quotes should be framed appropriately (“quotation sandwich”) (p. 46) — Quotes should be Introduced with appropriate verb (p. 47) — Quotes should present “proof of evidence” (p. 42) — Indicates page number of quote (p. 48)”I Say” (20 points):  Clear statement of your own argumentClearly distinguishes “they say” from “I say” – Clearly signals who is saying what: Uses at least one template from pp. 72-75 — “I say” includes clear reasons for argument that are not simply summaries of authors’ arguments – Clearly plants naysayer to support “I say” argument (use at least one template from pp. 82, 83,84-85, 89).Conclusion (10 points)Includes at least one “return sentence” in the conclusion to remind reader of what “they say” (p. 27); includes a restatement of thesis or “I say”; includes a developed explanation of why your argument matters (uses templates from pp. 95-96, 98-99).Bibliography or Works Cited (10 points)Includes proper bibliographic form — no annotations included here — includes 5 sources; 2 must be peer-reviewedEditing and tone (10 points)No editing errors (spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting); Uses proper tone (formal where appropriate, informal where appropriate)
