Project #73105 - MHS502

Your first Case Assignment consists of three parts. Please ensure that you complete all of these to be considered for full credit.

Part I: The following questions appear in a writing skills inventory located at http://writingcenter.unc.edu/faculty-resources/classroom-handouts/taking-inventory/. Give some thought to these questions, and provide brief written responses to each by the end of this module.

  1. What do you perceive as your greatest writing challenge overall? What do you usually have the most trouble with as a writer?
  2. What do you like about your current writing process? What do you do well?
  3. Which points of grammar, punctuation, style, or mechanics do you feel uncertain about? What sentence level issues trouble you most often?

Part II: Visit the Trident Online Library, and identify one book and three journal articles in which one would be able to find published studies relevant to the health sciences. (Hint: Books can be found via ebrary). Describe the process that you undertook to locate these items. Finally, provide reference citations for each of these sources in APA format. Present these elements in written form by the end of this module.

Part III:Plagiarism, whether deliberate or unintended, can be devastating to a student’s academic career and even future employment. Given this, please review the information provided in the Indiana University Plagiarism Tutorial, and complete the 10-Item Quiz after doing so. At the conclusion of the quiz, you will be given an option of having a copy of your results e-mailed to your instructor. Please do so as this will serve as verification that you have completed the third part of this assignment.

Assignment Expectations

Length: The written component of this assignment should be 2-3 pages long (double-spaced).

References: At least four references must be included from scholarly sources—one book and three peer-reviewed journal articles. Required Reading is included. Quoted materials should not exceed 10% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is critical thinking). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. Materials copied verbatim from external sources must be enclosed in quotation marks. In-text reference citations are required as well as a list of references at the end of the assignment. (APA format is required.)

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to the questions.

Format: APA format is required for this assignment.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity.

The following items will be assessed in particular:

  • Achievement of learning outcomes for this Case Assignment.
  • Relevance—All content is connected to the question.
  • Precision—Specific question is addressed. Statements, facts, and statistics are specific and accurate.
  • Depth of discussion—Points that lead to deeper issues are presented and integrated.
  • Breadth—Multiple perspectives and references, and multiple issues/factors are considered.
  • Evidence—Points are well supported with facts, statistics, and references.
  • Logic—Discussion makes sense; conclusions are logically supported by premises, statements, or factual information.
  • Clarity—Writing is concise and understandable and contains sufficient detail or examples.
  • Objectivity—Avoids the use of first person and subjective bias

    Having completed the required reading for this module, you should now be ready to identify scholarly sources on your own. To this end, please choose one of the following topic areas, and identify 8-10 scholarly sources relevant to that area. These should include primarily journal articles, but you may supplement these with books, book chapters, or government documents. After compiling your reference list, please respond to the questions posed on the Evidence Analysis Worksheet, which can be found in the Background Information section of this module. Upload your list of these references, which should be furnished in APA format, and your worksheet responses by the end of this module. (NOTE: APA formatting is a requirement for this assignment.)

    • Murray (2008) outlines six specific functions of academic writing. These include defining, describing, comparing and contrasting, classifying, explaining causes and effects, and developing an argument. These are used at different phases of the writing process. Choose two functions, and, using the Murray chapter as a guide, complete the following tasks relative to those functions. Provide your written responses in a single document file, which you should upload by the end of this module.

      Defining:

      1. Choose 3-4 health science related terms you wish to define.
      2. Break each down into a category.
      3. Note distinguishing characteristics of each.
      4. Use this information to create a sentence defining each term.
      5. Explain how one of these would be used were you to develop a research report (be sure to clarify your own interpretation off the term).

      Describing:

      1. Describe the sequence of steps required to complete a specific task or describe how something works (these should be health-related).
      2. Use complete sentences in doing so with appropriate linking words and phrases between each.
      3. Divide your description into paragraphs if necessary. (“Question for Thought” - Under what circumstances might it become necessary to use multiple paragraphs as opposed to one?)

      Comparing and Contrasting:

      1. Compare and contrast two closely related terms/concepts/systems/theories relevant to the health sciences.
      2. Note their similarities and differences.
      3. Use appropriate linking words and phrases.
      4. Provide a brief introductory sentence or paragraph.

      Classifying:

      1. Complete Section 1.5, Task 2 in the Murray chapter. Provide written responses to each of the questions posed in the text.

      Explaining Causes and Effects:

      1. Select a topic from the list below:
      • Childhood obesity
      • Bullying
      • Infertility
      • Violence
      • Food insecurity
      • Child abuse
      • Prescription drug abuse
      • Designer drug use
      • HIV/AIDS
      • Air pollution
      • Poverty
      1. Use “words and phrases associated with cause and effect” to draft a cause and effect paragraph on your chosen topic (see Section 1.6.1 of the Murray chapter).

      Developing an Argument:

      1. Complete Section 1.7.3, Task 2 or Section 1.7.4, Task 3 in the Murray chapter. Provide written responses to each of the questions posed in the text.

      Use the Revision Checklist referenced in your Background readings to review and refine your Module 5 SLP, which comprises your final paper for this course. Give an overall assessment of your SLP by addressing the questions on the checklist. For instance, you could start with an introduction explaining what the purpose of the paper is and then use short headings for the individual components (Subject, Audience, Purpose, Organization, Paragraphing, etc.) and finish with a conclusion. In the end, the assignment should clearly show that you evaluated your SLP with all the questions in mind and highlight some of the changes you might have made to your SLP based as a result of your application of the checklist.

      Upload the resultant document at the conclusion of this module.
