3: you show an excellent understanding of the concepts, synopsizing them well and bringing your own thoughts and experiences to bear in a sophisticated way.

1. You will write two or three sentences on each reading, summarizing one or two of its key points in your own words (not using direct quotes). Seriously, keep it brief.
2. After writing the summaries, you will then write a brief overall paragraph (not one for each reading) that brings your own voice to bear on the issues and ideas at hand. You will apply one or more concepts from the readings to your own experiences and observations, something happening in the news, to something in pop culture, or the like.
3. Finally, you will pose at least one final thoughtful question or provocative topic based on the readings that can be used for further discussion in class.
4. Use ” Perspective” books for only “Religion” chapter.
1: You show a poor understanding of the concepts, do not apply them appropriately to your own thoughts or experiences. You submit a question that does not address the concepts.
2: You show a good understanding of the concepts and apply them appropriately to your own thoughts and experiences. Your question/topic is relevant to the week’s readings, but does not encourage in-depth discussion.
3: You show an excellent understanding of the concepts, synopsizing them well and bringing your own thoughts and experiences to bear in a sophisticated way. Your question/topic is rich and/or promises to lead to in-depth discussion.
Note: You can demonstrate sophistication while remaining brief. This is a skill that will be rewarded.

1: You show a poor understanding of the concepts, do not apply them appropriately to your own thoughts or experiences. You submit a question that does not address the concepts.
2: You show a good understanding of the concepts and apply them appropriately to your own thoughts and experiences. Your question/topic is relevant to the week’s readings, but does not encourage in-depth discussion.

In this assignment, you will examine how anthropologists from two different subfields can study evolution (change over time).

Purpose:
Anthropologists study many different aspects of humanity in order to fully understand the diversity of the human species. Remember, evolution can apply to both physical and societal changes, so things like language and customs can evolve just as much as bodies and brains. In this assignment, you will examine how anthropologists from two different subfields can study evolution (change over time). Be sure you download the attached worksheet, fill it out, and submit it. Other formats (for example, a paper, will not be accepted)
Directions:
In the table that is provided, type your answers to these questions:
Explain what physical anthropology is, and how physical anthropologists study evolution. Find at least one scholarly source that identifies a specific research project in which physical anthropologists study evolution (e.g. the Human Genome Project- conduct your own original research, do not use this example). Describe the research project and its significance in our understanding of evolution.
Choose a second subfield of anthropology (cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, or archaeology). Explain what the second subfield focuses on, and how anthropologists in this subfield study evolution. Find at least one scholarly source that identifies a specific research project in which anthropologist from this subfield study evolution. For example, an archaeologist may look at how tools have changed through time, and what has caused that change (conduct your own original research, do not use this example). Describe the research project and its significance in our understanding of evolution.
Compare and contrast how physical anthropologists and anthropologists in the subfield you chose study evolution.

I hope you enjoyed reading this book!
As I mentioned in the Guideline document there are so many aspects of this book we can discuss. 
Choose one of the questions below and write a knowledgeable response, that demonstrates you read the book and considered the information presented. Your response must be at least 14 sentences and no longer than 20. ( worth up to 14 points for a well-written and informative post)
Respond to at least TWO other peoples posts in a knowledgeable way; each post must be at least 6 sentences long and be more than an agreement statement, meaning you need to include some substance in your response, such as other information you learned from the book that you didn’t already state in your original post (3 points for each response).
Do NOT repeat information in your replies that someone else has already posted (you must make your initial post before you see other people’s posts). Read other posts/replies before responding to others. You will be DOCKED points if you repeat information. 
Use proper grammar and punctuation in your posts. Remember this is an upper division college course and your writing needs to reflect this standing. You will be DOCKED points for grammatical errors/sloppiness. I highly encourage everyone to write their answers in a word doc and use spelling and grammar check and then copy and paste it into the discussion post. Always proofread your work.
Question Choices: ONLY CHOOSE ONE
Consider how different things would have been if a reputable interpreter was involved in all the encounters between the Lee family and medical professionals.
After reading this book explain the importance of hospitals hiring interpreters and/or cultural liaisons/medical anthropologists.
 Discuss one of the most tragic cross-cultural misunderstandings you read in the book.
Where do the Hmong originally come from, how are they socially organized, why did they end up in Northern Southeast Asia?
What are some of the Hmong’s strongest cultural characteristics, what was their traditional form of social control?
What was “The War” and why were the Hmong involved? Who were they fighting with and who were they fighting against?
Why did the Hmong become refugees in America (and elsewhere around the world)?  How did American’s view them? Discuss at least one cultural aspects that changed once they became refugees in America.

Essays should be between 300-500 words

Choose any two readings between the start of the semester to today and write a short essay summarizing them and discussing how they relate to each other. You may discuss how they differ, what they agree on, or how the concepts they discuss influence each other. For example, if you choose to examine Myth & Meaning by Levi-Strauss and Magic, Science & Religion by Malinowski, you could say how both are framing the relationship between knowledge production and social organization, and how science differs from mythology in how power is distributed across society.
Essays should be between 300-500 words

*******this is not a research paper, but has to be in email format as the instructions indicate.

I will attached the instructions for the project, also the artifact that you have to refer to and write about and also scientific dating methods for you to select the 3 that you want to incorporate in this project about ancient societies from the first settlements in Sumer to the dynasties of China to infer the conditions and habits of the society that created your artifact and to present a theoretical framework that explains how this artifact came to be.
Apply your knowledge of the scientific methodologies and techniques described during the first two weeks of this course to further your understanding of your artifact(s) and the people who created it.
Craft a convincing argument in favor of the need for further analysis of your artifact and its historical context.
*******THIS IS NOT A RESEARCH PAPER, but has to be in email format as the instructions indicate. Thanks.
