or many years, Stephen Jay Gould brought the complexities of science to the general public through his monthly articles in Natural History magazine. His compelling writing style combined with the philosophy of a Renaissance man provided insights into the fields of geology, paleontology, and evolutionary biology, making accessible to the non-specialist his special interests of punctuated equilibrium, natural selection, and the relationship between form and function.
For this assignment, I have chosen one of Gould’s essays. You will read “The Panda’s Thumb”:
Your assignment is to summarize the essay for your classmates in 200-250 words. Please state the thesis as the first sentence (Stephen Jay Gould argues that _______) and then provide at least three main points of evidence used to demonstrate that thesis. Make sure to use appropriate signal phrases, with an author’s name and the title of the work.
DB4: A Master of Popular Science (25 points; due 01/31); no replies are required to avoid unnecessary bickering.
WARNING: Sometimes, this assignment degrades into students debating evolution. Do not steer off topic. Avoid posting your individual opinions about evolution. Regarding the completion of this assignment, whether you believe or disbelieve evolution is irrelevant, and posting your individual views of the concept strays from the assignment’s instructions. Stick to following the directions you see above, and do not deviate from what they request. Don’t post your individual opinion about evolution, whether that opinion is in support of evolution or critical of evolution.
This article was selected specifically to test your ability to simply summarize a work without adding your commentary or opinion because its topic is likely to cause passionate positive or negative reactions. If you add any opinion to this submission, you will have failed to properly summarize this article. I cannot stress this enough, whether you believe in evolution or do not believe in evolution, keep your opinion out of this summary to earn full credit.
