Overview: In previous modules, you identified an issue, developed a research question, and examined sources that could help you explore the issue. You also
considered the scientific principles related to your topic, and how you might communicate your findings to a specific audience. Building on these elements, you
will formulate a hypothesis related to your issue. Then, applying what you learned about the process of science, you will explain the next steps that natural
scientists would take to support or refute your hypothesis. What kind of evidence would they look for? What kind of tests they need to conduct? Throughout
this course, you explored a variety of specific cases in which natural scientists addressed issues, tested hypotheses, and developed solutions to problems. Many
of their solutions have become key discoveries that we rely on today for health, safety, and other practical uses. So, as you consider your hypothesis and the
next steps a scientist would take, reflect back on these examples. This reflection is the final piece of your planning document, and you will use it to develop your
presentation in Module 8.
Prompt: You will build on the elements you composed in your first publish and develop your hypothesis. After you have your hypothesis, explain what steps a
natural scientist would take to either refute or support your hypothesis. By the end of Module Six, you will fine tune the entire planning document to be
submitted to your instructor.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Introduction: At this point, you should have received feedback from your instructor. For this second publish, review and make any necessary revisions or
adjustments to the following elements:
a. Describe the issue in the natural sciences that you have selected to investigate. Why is this issue significant? (You identified this issue in Module
One, but how would you revise this piece now that you have received instructor feedback and investigated your sources?)
b. Describe at least three science resources that you could use to investigate the issue you selected. Your sources must be relevant to your issue
and must be of an academic nature appropriate for the issue. In your description, consider questions such as: What are the similarities and
differences in the content of your sources? What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your issue? What was your thought
process when you were searching for sources? How did you make choices?
c. Based on your review of science resources, develop a specific question related to the issue you selected. In other words, what would you like to
know more about?
II. Body: You should also receive instructor feedback about this section and continue to consider your evidence. For this second publish, review these sections
and make any necessary revisions or adjustments to the following elements:
a. Identify an audience that would be interested in your issue and the question you developed. For example, who would benefit most from hearing
your message, or who could best help in addressing the issue?
b. Describe how and why you can tailor your message to your audience, providing specific examples. For example, will your audience understand
scientific terminology and principles, or will you need to explain them? How will you communicate effectively with your audience?
c. Identify the natural science principle(s) that apply to your question and issue. For example, if your issue is global climate change, the principle
you might identify is that the sun is the primary source of energy for Earth’s climate system.
d. Explain how the principle(s) you identified apply to your issue and question. In other words, how are the natural science principle(s) you
identified relevant to your question and issue?
III. Conclusion: In this section, you will conclude your research investigation by discussing future directions for research related to your question.
Specifically, you should:
a. Formulate a hypothesis that addresses the question you developed. Make sure your hypothesis is based on your investigation of your question.
b. Explain how a natural scientist would go about collecting evidence to support or refute the hypothesis you formulated. In other words, what
would the next steps be if a natural scientist were to continue researching your hypothesis? Make sure to support your response with the
natural science resources that you selected.
IV. Provide a reference list that includes all of the science resources you used to investigate your issue and question so far. Apply feedback from your
instructor to ensure that your list is formatted according to current APA guidelines (or another format, with instructor permission).
Rubric
Guidelines for Submission: The second publish of your planning document should be 3–5 pages, double spaced, with 12-point Times New Roman font and oneinch margins. You should use current APA guidelines (or another format approved by your instructor) for your citations and reference list

1. Describe process involved that lead to the creation of wind and why it doesn’t exactly flow in a straight line (see lecture/materials). Be sure to include what the Coriolis Effect is and what it does! How do we measure winds and pressure (what is the name of the instrument)?
2. Describe the circulation cells you learned about in lecture (should be 3 of them) .
3. What was interesting to you from this week’s lecture? Would you add something more to it?
4. Search Google for an article about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Describe what it is and how it’s related to global circulation. Do winds drive ocean currents? How does this impact the US? Explain. Cite sources in your reference list.
Each answer should have its own separate paragraph. Answers should be at least 4 complete sentences (paragraph), on topic, scientific, and adequate. Be thorough with your discussions

1. Identify two books that your students will read. Make sure the books are grade level appropriate and align with your content area. See the rubric for specific requirements. You must provide your grade level and content area of licensure in the assignment.
2. Combine the course readings with independent research on literacy assessment strategies in order to create plans to assess students’ literacy focusing on each dimension of literacy – oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
3. Make sure that your plans connect to the books that your students will read by including specific vocabulary from the book in word based assessments and include specific comprehension strategies when assessing comprehension. Make sure to plan for assessing phonological awareness, phonics, and fluency even if you plan to teach at the secondary level.
4. Cite the credible sources you found through your research on literacy assessment to create your plans.

As humans make new scientific discoveries, they can develop additional technologies. For example, historically people used the bark and leaves from willow trees to treat fevers and pain. This was a traditional medicine that people shared with one another via word of mouth. As technology advanced, the materials from the willow tree could be analyzed in a lab and the components could be studied to see which natural chemicals were responsible for reducing fever and pain. Research showed that the willow tree contained a form of salicylic acid and that this was what gave it its healing powers. This scientific research led to the development of the aspirin we use today which is now mass produced (and that you have probably taken at some point in your lifetime).
You depend on many technologies throughout your day that make your modern life possible. In this Assignment, you will look at some of these technologies and the scientific discoveries that made them possible. You will evaluate both the negative and positive impacts of these discoveries. You will also broaden your scope to look at how different cultures with different levels of access to technology approach the same problem – health care.
Part I Science in your personal and professional life
Think about your day from the time you wake up to the time that you go to sleep.
– List four technologies that you rely on and would find it difficult to get through your day or night without. Discuss any negative impacts these technologies have on your life, society, and the environment.
– Think about your day from the time you wake up to when you go to sleep. Describe one scientific discovery that you think is the most important for making modern life possible.
– List as many negative and positive impacts you can think of that this scientific discovery and the technologies that it allowed to be developed may have. Evaluate and discuss if the positives outweigh the negatives overall, or whether the negatives outweigh the positives.
Part II Science and technology in a multicultural world
Many research programs around the world focus on the discovery of cures for ailments from cancer to mental illness. Modern society invests a great deal of money, and time while pushing the boundaries of modern technology to develop new cures, and improve existing treatments.
Review the Assignment Resources.
– Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to the westernized high tech research approach to medical treatment.
– Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to using traditional medicine as an approach to medical treatment.
– Are there benefits to having multicultural approaches to medical treatment? Explain your answer.
– Could these two cultural approaches both be improved by drawing upon the other? Why or why not?
– Discuss any challenges there may be in combining these two different cultural approaches to treatment that have a very different level of reliance on scientific research and technology.
