You will be presented with 3 (three) different media science news articles to read, each with a suitable word
count range (around 800-1,000 words approximately, to maximize content opportunities for making multiple
connection points to our lessons), from sources like https://scitechdaily.com/ and https://phys.org/, published
outside of our research project’s period in the current and/or recent past semester.
• For each article, you will then complete a typed response (on your own device) containing 2 connection points
and 1 multiple-choice question, as follows:
o 2 (two) connection points between the article and our lesson materials (lesson slides and/or readings,
over single or multiple different lessons covered this term). Each connection point should:
▪ Have a clear title given for the connection point, including the general scientific concept being
connected between the article and the lesson (eg: Colour sensitivity ranges of human vision),
and a specific reference to the lesson materials (eg: Lesson 3 slides (#19, 21))
▪ Be written fully in your own words! Copying sentences, in part or in full, from the articles
themselves and/or lesson materials constitutes plagiarism, as does copying/sharing answers
between classmates; this in turn may result in deductions ranging in severity. Using other aides
like Google Translator is highly discouraged, as it can lead to copied material being selected
from the web, and resulting in plagiarized content submitted by the student. Instead, after
reading each article and identifying the scientific concepts for your connections, try putting the
articles away and writing your connection points completely on your own, with proper English
grammar and writing style.
▪ Demonstrate meaningful insight into the scientific material presented in the article and
covered in the lessons, by explaining clearly how your stated scientific concept in the connection
point – as first explained in our lesson materials – is now also being investigated in the scientific
research being reported in the assigned news article. Compare-and-contrast type analysis is a
good technique to use here, by first comparing the similarities in the scientific concept (between
the lesson materials and news article), and then contrasting any possible differences between
them as well, such as new or unexpected or contradicting results discovered in the research
compared to the previous knowledge on that topic (as covered in the lessons). Make sure there
is adequate discussion of both the news article and textbook readings/lessons in each
connection point.
▪ Note: if using video documentaries (for lessons 7 or 11 only) for ‘lesson material’ for your
connection point, then you must specify the specific timing in the video itself where your
concepts are explained. (For all other lessons, use only the lesson slides for references, and not
the recorded lesson videos.)
▪ Be between 50-150 words long as a general guide. (Higher grades will be assigned for higher
quality of connection points presented, and not simply for meeting the minimum word count.)
o At least 1 (one) multiple-choice question created based on the media article, following the same format
as our short assignments (i.e. 4 possible answer options, with correct answer identified as well). Higher
grades will be given to questions more conceptual (than just factual) in their nature.
• Once you have completed all your responses, with 6 connection points and 3 multiple-choice questions created
in total, you will then submit the Word file to the TurnItIn submission link, within the exam time period
