Anthropology

1. Type a three to four paged double-spaced response to one of the questions posted below. Please aim for a minimum of 3 pages, not including a title or references page . Times New Roman font, 12 pt, one inch margins only!
2. Incorporate two peer-reviewed articles into your response. You must cite in-text, in American Psychological Association format (APA). Here is a link to show you how to format in APA, if you have never done so: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ . Peer-reviewed articles are only found in Academic Journals. If you were a member of the general public who was not attending college, you would need to pay for these articles. However, since you are a Saddleback College student, you have full access to these via the Library website. Here are the steps to find a peer-reviewed source:
a. Go to the Saddleback Library website which you can access via the main homepage
b. In the middle of the page, you will see a navigation tablet entitled “Research Tools”
c. Click on “Find articles in Database”
d. Enter keywords that would help you find two peer-reviewed articles
NOTE: If you should need assistance, please contact the Reference Desk via this number: (949) 582-4525 or you can email them via “Live Chat” when the library is open during business hours.
3. Your paper must include two headlines: Introduction and Conclusion. The introduction section will be designed to acquaint the reader (me, your instructor) with the topic at hand. In this section, you may start by describing and defining key terms, species names, etc. Your introduction should have a plentiful amount of in-text citations, ESPECIALLY from the peer-reviewed articles you chose. In the conclusion, you should provide a comprehensive analysis of the question asked. Was there anything that particularly surprised you about the topic, once you researched it?
4. Finally, cite the article both in text and at the next page of your document (References/Works Cited)
REMEMBER: Never use material from another source, via quote or paraphrase, that you are not willing to cite. Not citing a source is considered plagiarism!

For this paper, please choose one topic below:

1. How is bushmeat decimating the great apes throughout southern Africa and what effective methods are being employed to stop it? How does Life History Theory (refer to Kaplan, et al 2000) interject with conservation efforts?

2. What are the similarities and differences of tool use between Homo erectus, Homo neanderthalensis, and modern Homo sapiens? Does culture shape the use of tools or do tools shape culture in modern times?

3. According to R. Nesse (text can be found online or in library), Why do we get sick? What are the evolutionary implications in how we understand illness and disease? How could applying the evolutionary perspective be valuable when tackling major diseases/conditions such as Cancer, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and TB? (For this question, you should only select one or two diseases/conditions. Tackling more than two may be far too great for a short paper)
