Both in-text citations and a reference page are required for this paper.
For this assignment, you will need to analyze your diet. In order to do this analysis, you will need to determine what is recommended for you, then keep track of everything you eat and drink for 1 day and look up the nutrition information (carbs, fat, etc) for each item. There is a file titled Nutrition Analysis on Titanium to help you do this (log is on page 3).
Please note: If you have an eating disorder, or have had one in the past, you should not complete this assignment. Please email your instructor for an alternate written assignment for this module.
Assignment: Most people should aim to get a variety of high quality nutrients in their diet – this includes macronutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, and also micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) such as sodium. Analyze your diet, concentrating on nutrition, not calories or behavior. Your writing assignment should discuss the following:
Overall, how would you rate your diet? You may rate yourself on a scale of 1-10, or give yourself a letter grade.
What are you doing well? Support this with specific information from your log, as well as outside resources.
In what area(s) could your diet be improved? How could you improve (what could be added, subtracted, or changed to make it better)? Again, support this with specific information from your log, as well as outside resources.
You will need to support your conclusions with specific examples from your nutrition log as well as outside sources. For example, if you say you are doing well because you are getting enough fiber by eating fruits and vegetables, you should support this from your log (“I had ‘x’ servings which provided me with ‘x’ grams of fiber”) and from an outside source (“nutritionists recommend eating ‘x’ grams per day (CITATION)”).
Note: Assignments submitted without a completed nutrition log will not be able to earn more than 5/10 on the nutrition analysis section of the rubric.
Citations: You should be able to complete this assignment using information from the textbook and learning materials, but you are welcome to use outside sources as long as you have verified they are reliable. Each time you use a fact or piece of information from a source (whether obtained from course material, assignment information, or outside resources) you should use an in-text citation to indicate where the information came from. This includes discussing recommendations from the calculator – the calculator itself must bee cited when you do this. Each source cited in text should appear in your reference page. Use the links below for guidelines on formatting citations and references. There are examples of in text citations in the Academic Integrity assignment in the course introduction section of Titanium. Failure to include both in-text citations (where appropriate) AND a reference page will result in a minimum of a 0 for this writing assignment and may result in further disciplinary action both by the instructor and the University.
Biology 101 Writing Assignment Guidelines
The written assignments are designed to provide opportunities for the student to find, evaluate, select, synthesize, organize, cite, and present information and arguments clearly and effectively for understanding scientific issues on personal, societal, and global levels. This requirement is designed to help students achieve the University-wide Student Learning Outcomes (UPS 300.003) specifically to “communicate clearly, effectively, and persuasively, both orally and in writing”. (See: http://www.fullerton.edu/senate/publications_policies_resolutions/ups/UPS%20300/UPS%20300.003.pdf)
It is important that your assignments are thoroughly researched and clearly written. You should define all your terms and be concise. These assignments are designed to give you the experience of applying your knowledge of biology to a current controversy or topic of interest. You will use the same sort of method that you will later use as an informed citizen and consumer when making decisions that involve biology. You should review the relevant chapters in your textbook, other course materials and use other sources to fill in missing information when necessary.
The structure of your paper
Be sure to cover the points mentioned in each individual assignment and define all technical terms that you use in your own words. Your paper needs to be written so the average person can understand it.
Your paper must be between 1/2 -1page (not including references). The second page is only for the complete references of the material cited in your paper. Any portion of your text on the second page will not be read or graded. Your paper should be double-spaced with one-inch margins, using 12 point Times New Roman font. No cover page or heading is required (Turnitin will automatically attach your info to your submissions); if you want to include a name or title please do so in the heading. The body of your paper should begin on the first line of the first page. You are not allowed to include any quotes in your paper. All of your writing must be original. You must properly paraphrase ideas from the literature, even if you provide an in-text citation.
Information and ideas that are properly paraphrased must be accompanied by proper in-text citations in the body of your paper and a corresponding reference in American Psychological Association (APA) format. Note: only the references need to be in APA, other APA formatting items (such as a title page) should not be included.
You need to review your paper for format, spelling, grammar and usage errors before you submit it, or you will lose points. Please also review the grading rubric before submitting your paper to make sure that you have done everything you can to receive a good grade.
Primary Sources: You may find information in the “primary literature,” which is where the research was originally published. You can find these articles by using CSUF’s on-line search engines, or by asking for the help of a CSUF librarian. Examples of the primary literature include Science, Nature, Proceedings of the National Academy, and Genetics. Using the primary literature is NOT required.
Secondary Sources: You may find relevant articles in recent newspapers, popular magazines, or popular science journals. These are referred to as “secondary” sources, since they describe research that was published elsewhere. Examples of these include The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, Time, Scientific American, Discover, New Scientist, and Science News.
Websites: If you choose to use a website, be aware that most websites are not peer-reviewed, and often present inaccurate information. Examples of excellent websites include those of the National Academy of Science, the National Institute of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, and WebMD. If you are unsure of the appropriateness of a website, check with your instructor. Alternatively, the CSUF library has an excellent guide to evaluating websites at http://library.fullerton.edu/ under Guides for Undergraduates. Wikipedia is not an appropriate website for research in a college course.
Guidelines for citing references
In-Text Citations are REQUIRED for any information included in your paper (everything that is not common knowledge or opinion)
In-text citations should be in APA format. You can find a summary of APA guidelines for your citations at: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/02/
NOTE: Any course materials used to complete these assignments must also be properly cited in your paper.
Reference Page is REQUIRED and should include all sources cited in text
Your references should be formatted using APA guidelines. You can find a summary of APA guidelines for your reference page at: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/05/
