This week we’re really starting to ramp down for the course. As a warm up for the course final (due the last Friday of Finals Week), your weekly reflection this week will be to analyze Wednesday’s reading (for which there is no assignment) in terms of the whole course. As soon as you can, check out the BIG POINTS critique for last week. It’s accidentally a little longer than normal (~30 min), but I hope you’ll agree that on the whole we’ve had a relatively low lecture requirement for this course!
Just a basic reading quiz for today that MUST BE DONE BEFORE MIDNIGHT on TUESDAY; afterwards, check out the quiz explanation / BIG POINTS video.
No reading responses due today, but look ahead to Friday.
For your weekly reflection this week, we’re going to do a kind of a Final Course Reflection Warm-up. Reflecting on what we’ve done in the course so far, how well does Wednesday’s reading establish/outline a productive future for understanding the relationship between nutrition, diet, and health? What is the (implied) role of science? We’ve obviously covered a lot more history than is in (or would be appropriate for) for an article like this. Are there ISSUES (not necessarily specific historic “facts”) that the article should have engaged with? The more readings you can review and try to tie in from the entire course (ESPECIALLY MONDAY’S READINGS), the easier and better your final will be.
