Part 1: Initial Blog Post on an Organ System
Now that you have had a chance to study the organ systems of the body, choose one system and research it further. Find a credible and reliable, scientific website that augments what you have already learned about that particular organ system. No duplicate websites are permitted.
[NOTE: Neither open resources nor open blogs can be used as sources of information; see ‘Researching Information’ within the class for more information on appropriate credible/reliable sources of information].
[Not citing a specific reliable academic/scientific resource is an automatic 10 point deduction].
Share the website with the class by writing a full paragraph summary (150 words minimum) of what you have learned or have found particularly helpful when reviewing the website. Do not copy and paste directly from the website. This blog should be written in your own words. Also required within the initial blog post is sharing the website (specific URL) and what you have learned from this resource and/or have found particularly helpful when reviewing the website. Do not copy and paste directly from the website. This blog should be written in your own words.Any content and paraphrased information from the resource (URL) must be properly cited per APA including the specific URL (website) you are recommending.
