The concept of contagious disease caused by microorganisms is first seen in the Old Testament. The biblical roots of microbiology are not a surprise when we consider the contributions of Louis Pasteur, the father of modern microbiology. Pasteur’s swan-necked flask experiments not only disproved the theory of spontaneous generation (i.e., life evolved from nonliving matter), but also set the foundation for the law of biogenesis: life comes from preexisting life.
Conduct research of microbial pathogens/infectious agents. Refer to Part IV – Infections Diseases (Chapters 21–27) in Nester’s Microbiology: A Human Perspective With Connect and other online scientific journals/articles (e.g., .edu, .gov/, .org websites).
Select any one microorganism (bacteria, virus, fungus, protozoa, or prion) and create a PowerPoint presentation (minimum 10 slides) that addresses the following criteria:
Title slide (clearly present your topic and your name)
Causative agent and structure
Diseases, signs, and symptoms
Pathogenesis and virulence
Epidemiology
Diagnosis
Treatment, control, and prevention
Microbe in the news (highlight one reliable news article about your microorganism)
Christian worldview on caring for the suffering (provide a relevant Bible verse/passage and briefly discuss the significance of microbes from a biblical perspective)
Reference slide (Use a minimum of three references; only use reliable sources)
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Thank you!
Project Part Two Guidelines and Rubric
Overview
Basic scientific literacy is essential for understanding real-world applications of the natural sciences. As a consumer and voter, you will be faced with issues that require a basic understanding of science. For example, you might ask yourself the following questions: How can genetically modified foods affect my health? Should scientists be held liable for not predicting earthquakes that led to human casualties, as they were in Italy in 2012?
Is anthropogenic climate change real? Is fracking a concern where I live? Because of the prevalence of natural science issues such as these, it is important to understand basic natural science concepts and how they impact our daily lives.
The project for this course has two parts. In part one, you conducted a research investigation that examined an issue in the natural sciences. You identified appropriate resources for investigating the issue you selected, used these resources to develop a question related to the issue, and applied natural science principles to the issue and question. In addition, you identified an audience who would be interested in the selected issue.
In Part Two, you will develop a presentation for the audience you identified in Part One. In your presentation, you will explain how scientific thinking has impacted you and your audience, supporting your claims with evidence.
Part Two of this project addresses the following course outcomes:
● Illustrate the impact of scientific thinking on personal and professional experiences
● Communicate effectively to specific audiences in examining fundamental aspects of the natural world
● Utilize empirical evidence in drawing conclusions about the impact of contemporary scientific issues on individuals and society
Prompt
Referring to your research investigation, create a presentation that explains how scientific thinking has impacted you and discusses the impact of your selected issue on your audience.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Provide a brief overview of the scientific background of your issue and question. How does the issue relate to the natural sciences?
II. Explain how the issue impacts the audience. In other words, how is the issue relevant to members of the audience? Why should the audience care about the response to your question or the outcome of your hypothesis? Support your response with specific examples from your research investigation.
III. Describe the empirical evidence you have to support your conclusions about the impact of the issue on you personally and on your audience. Support your response with specific examples from your research investigation.
IV. Explain why this issue is important to you personally. In other words, why did you select this issue to investigate?
V. Illustrate how your investigation of the issue impacted the way you thought about the issue. In other words, how did thinking like a scientist to research, develop a question, and formulate a hypothesis affect what you thought about the issue you selected? How did scientific thinking change the lens through which you viewed the issue? Support your response with specific examples from your research investigation. VI. Communicate your message in a way that is tailored to your specific audience. For instance, you could consider your vocabulary, your audience’s potential knowledge of current natural science (or lack thereof), and what is specifically important to the audience.
Project Part Two Rubric Guidelines for Submission:
Guidelines for Submission: Your presentation should have approximately 5–7 slides in Prezi, PowerPoint, or another comparable presentation tool. Make sure to include your speaker notes so that your instructor knows what you would say if you were actually giving the presentation.

For this field trip you are required to visit a local community and evaluate how sustainable they are. This could be your local community, or one that you visit for this trip. Spend about 2 hours walking around the community, maybe stop to sit on a bench and watch people, or eat lunch. You need to spend some time in the area to get a sense of how sustainable the community is. As you walk and observe, think about the following: are there sidewalks, public transit, or do cars dominate. Does the community have visible trash, are the buildings in good repair, do many people walk in the community?
For your trip report answer the following questions. Make sure to meet the min 500 required word count (do not include the questions in your word count or answers – just the numbers). Remember to use your own words and thoughts.
What are the key strategies used to promote sustainability in the community? what do you see as you walk around your community?
Do you feel your chosen community is an enjoyable place to spend time? Why or why not?
Describe how the community promotes walkability.

English 103 Assignment #6: Research Essay
Signature Assignment – Due Thursday of Week 8
This assignment fulfills the AA program learning outcome for Program Learning
Outcome #7: Information Literacy: Evaluate and cite various information resources
necessary to complete an academic research essay.
________________________________________________________________________
Instructions
Write a 2,000 to 2,500-word research essay that persuades a skeptical audience to
agree with your position on one of the issues below. Your topic must be debatable–
meaning a topic about which intelligent, well-meaning people disagree.
The argument should be supported by information from credible written sources such
as scholarly journals and books. You may also take advantage of credible websites,
radio, or even television programs. Consider interviewing someone with deep
experience in the field, if possible—the interview would be a source. Your sources
should be current (usually not more than seven years old) unless you are providing
historical background. All quotations, summaries, and paraphrases must be correctly
cited and documented using the APA documentation system. References to the citation
system are in the APA tab of the Hacker textbook, The Writer’s Reference.
Most of your final paper should be in your own words. Do not make your final paper a
simple collection of good quotations from other sources.
Requirements
1. Before handing in your final paper, you will have passed five checkpoints: (1)
Research Proposal; (2) APA or MLA citation list (3) Argument Analysis essay, (4) Research
Essay Outline, and (5) review of your Research Essay draft by both CorrectEnglish and
the instructor.
2. You must present opposing viewpoints (counter arguments) fairly and logically refute
them.
3. Use at least FIVE different sources by at least FIVE different authors from different
publications.
4. Avoid plagiarism by handling and documenting your sources appropriately.
5. Your essay must be in either APA or MLA style: standard margins and spacing, Times
New Roman with 12 point font, and a References or Works Cited page that is
formatted correctly. Use your textbook’s APA or MLA guide for help.
Approved Topics
(You are encouraged to select your own topic, such as an issue you deal with at work.
To do so, check with your instructor (an email is fine), who will make sure your topic is
appropriate for the assignment).
1. Should governments have the right to monitor public places, even if there has been
no threat lodged? (Think red-light cameras, facial-recognition cameras, or China’s “social
credit” policies).
2. Should the public school day begin after 9am?
3. Are workers more or less productive when they work from home?
4. Should Internet influences be allowed to use their children on their shows? (This
might also be applied to more traditional forms of media like the “reality” show).
5. Is the current tax system in your country fair? (This one can focus on a lot of
different sub-topics, like a flat tax, corporate tax law, etc.)
6. Should it be mandatory for all companies to offer paid maternity and/or paternity
leave? Who would pay for it?
7. Should social media platforms be allowed to sell the user data they have collected?
8. Is climate change caused by humans?
9. Are children of illegal immigrants entitled to a public education?
10. Should the government provide everyone a universal basic income?
11. Should the US have more restrictions on gun ownership?
12. Are standardized tests (SAT/ACT/GRE/MCAT/LSAT) an accurate predictor of
academic success?
13. Should student loan debt be easier to discharge in bankruptcy?
14. Should the process for electing a US president (or the top official in your country) be
changed?
15. Will we find a cure or effective treatment for Alzheimer’s in the next twenty years?
(You can substitute any disease or condition here).
16. Should college athletes in Division 1 programs or their equivalents be paid?
17.Should the US require that every teen fulfill a term of national service? (This might be
military, but could also be working in the national forests, in poor neighborhoods, etc.)
18. Is mass consumerism the biggest threat to our environment?
19. Should we provide universal preschool for all children?
20. Is it unethical to eat meat? (Or wear fur, etc.)?

Thank you.
In your post, explain any challenges you encountered in adapting your presentation for your specific audience. Did you find any of the scientific communications you studied or used in this course helpful when tailoring your message to your audience?
In response to your peers, compare and contrast their experience in presenting their information with your own experience. Offer suggestions about how you overcame, or would overcome, similar challenges.
1st Peer Response
Amanda Clinton
There were a few challenges that I faced when adapting my paper for my audience. I made my paper intended for everyone so I had to make sure that a kid could understand it as well as every other group in the audience. So the challenges that I face were to make it to were everyone could understand it but also keep everyone attention. The next one was picking my audience so that is how I choose everyone. I did find the scientific communications that were in our book to be helpful because it gave us example of how to talk to each type of audience so it would be helpful information for them.
2nd Peer Response
Alexandria Hyman
I have always had issues whenever it had to do with identifying the audience. For some unknown reason, the concept of finding the audience eludes me. I read the material provided and, to some degree, have an idea, but I also feel that there should be one correct answer, almost like a math question can only have one outcome. However, after receiving feedback from Professor Morgan, I slowly have the concept underhand. Another issue I am having is that there is a lot of information, but they are repetitive.
Another problem was squaring down my research question to a solid question, which took seven weeks. Better late than never, I guess. Narrowing down the research question to a suitable one has helped tremendously with the research being more focused.
I will say that learning through Soomo Web text has been exciting. It has been one of the best learning experiences I have had in a long time. The workload was understandable and easy to follow. Professor Morgan’s weekly check-ins, as well as her videos, helped a lot with understanding what was required for that week’s assignment. I am slowly becoming a fan of TED Talks. They can be very educational with information that gives ideas or directions when I sometimes feel stuck. When tailoring my message to the audience, I found that using simple terms and graphs, and images will be the stepping point for making my presentation simple and easy to understand while still having valid information usable to the audience.
