Assignment #1 – This assignment should help you to organize your thoughts about your research. Take time to really think about the questions – this effort will make writing the actual paper much easier. Please complete this worksheet and submit on Bb. You need to submit only once per pair (make sure I know who you are working with!).
1. With your partner, develop a research question. Write your research question here:
*Please ensure that the question is not answered by the book’s author.
Question is. “How has the development in human society led to the increased frequency of obesity?”
2. Why do you have this question? Please write a paragraph or two explaining your interest in this question. Give specific information from the book that leads you to ask this question (include page numbers). Explain how this information relates to your question.
3. What do you need to learn as a biologist to understand your question in the context of human evolution?
4. What do you need to learn as a biologist to understand your question in the context of human domestication of other organisms (plants and animals)?
5.What do you need to learn as a biologist to understand your question in the context of human disease evolution?
6.What do you need to learn as a biologist to understand the influence of the environment on your question?
7. Can you divide your question into sub-questions? Give a list of 8-10 sub-questions that relate to your main question. (You don’t have to answer them yet!)
