Wall-E Task Draft

Wall-E Task Draft

For this you may choose to focus on either Star Trek, The Martian or Wall-E. If you choose Star Trek, or The Martian target either an aspect of physics–such as warp drive, the transporter, the spacecraft etc. or one of cultural anthropology such as the use and abuse of the prime directive, the Borg, or political economy such as the Federation or potato farming. If you choose to work with Wall-E concentrate on environmentalism. Your should make an argument about how these media serve to educate the general public about science. Do they provide more disinformation than information?

English 1020 Mother and son

English 1020 Mother and son

 

After reading “Mother to Son” by Langston Hughes, reply to the following prompts:

1.  Hughes uses a central metaphor of a staircase, one not made of crystal, to compare the mother’s life to. Why do you think this metaphor is effective?
2.  The mother tells her son that her life has been full of “tacks,” “splinters,” “boards torn up,” and “places with no carpet.” The poet uses these concrete, tangible images as symbols of the mother’s difficult experiences.  What could these images symbolize/represent in the mother’s life? Be specific and keep historical context in mind as the poem was written in 1922.
3.  Has a significant figure in your life ever given you the type of encouragement the mother gives to her son? Have you been the one to give the encouragement to someone you care about?

When you have crafted and submitted your response, please reply to at least one peer. Remember to use salutations and closing signatures on your main post as well as your peer replies.

Scientific Methods

In Week 1, you used the scientific method to design research studies (basic and applied). Now you will select one of them (either the basic or the applied one) and build upon it using the skills you have developed since then. You are going to write the ‘introduction and background’ and the ‘method’ section of your study. Make sure that you review peer reviewed articles so that you can model your sections after those in peer reviewed journal articles. The background section of your study should be supported by at least 10 peer reviewed journal articles. Be sure to also specify your experimental and null hypothesis. In the method section, you will need to identify the methods of data collection, the participants, and the procedure for your study.  

At the conclusion of these two sections you need to write a rationale for your study that includes the following:

  • Analyze the types of sources used and how these choices may affect results.
  • Justify why your chosen methods of data collection are the optimal choice.
  • Discuss what type of approach you chose (e.g. qualitative, quantitative, or both) and evaluate why you chose this approach.

Submission Details

  • Please provide your answers in a 3- to 4-page Microsoft Word document.
  • Support your responses with examples.
