Each group member should select an article from the academic journals Science or Nature and summarize it based on the criteria below.
Science and Nature are the two preeminent scientific journals in the US and England. Each article should be about the group’s topic. Note that
the Foothill library electronic jouranals database lists Science as ‘Science Magazine’, and Nature as ‘Nature (London)’. For information on
accessing articles for free, see the note on Library Resources below. Do not do additional research.
Each person should summarize their article based on:
Title: The full citation of the article in MLA format (see below). Use the ‘scholarly journal with continuous pagination’ format.
Summary: What happened? When? Where? Note that this does not mean that you just copy the article abstract! Summarize in your own words.
Stakeholders: Who is affected (people? animals? ecosystems?)
Cost: How is each stakeholder affected? How are the costs quantified ($ value, cultural value, aesthetic value? other?)
Solution: Have we arrived at one? Why or why not? What are barriers to finding a solution?
Each part should consist of a maximum of three slides.
Each slide should also include the name of the primary author of that slide in the bottom right corner, as well as the reference of any specific
facts that you cite. The citations on the slides can simply include the author’s last name and the page number in parentheses. For example:
