please read instruction thoroughly! I will post the reply as soon as you complete this. Then I will write back to you and show you 2 classmates that will need the response.Thanks.
I hope you enjoyed reading this book!
As I mentioned in the Guideline document there are so many aspects of this book we can discuss.
Choose one of the questions below and write a knowledgeable response, that demonstrates you read the book and considered the information presented. Your response must be at least 14 sentences and no longer than 20. ( worth up to 14 points for a well-written and informative post)
Respond to at least TWO other peoples posts in a knowledgeable way; each post must be at least 6 sentences long and be more than an agreement statement, meaning you need to include some substance in your response, such as other information you learned from the book that you didn’t already state in your original post (3 points for each response).
Do NOT repeat information in your replies that someone else has already posted (you must make your initial post before you see other people’s posts). Read other posts/replies before responding to others. You will be DOCKED points if you repeat information.
Use proper grammar and punctuation in your posts. Remember this is an upper division college course and your writing needs to reflect this standing. You will be DOCKED points for grammatical errors/sloppiness. I highly encourage everyone to write their answers in a word doc and use spelling and grammar check and then copy and paste it into the discussion post. Always proofread your work.

Anthropologists study many different aspects of humanity in order to fully understand the diversity of the human species. Remember, evolution can apply to both physical and societal changes, so things like language and customs can evolve just as much as bodies and brains. In this assignment, you will examine how anthropologists from two different subfields can study evolution (change over time). Be sure you download the attached worksheet, fill it out, and submit it. Other formats (for example, a paper, will not be accepted)
In the table that is provided, type your answers to these questions:
Explain what physical anthropology is, and how physical anthropologists study evolution. Find at least one scholarly source that identifies a specific research project in which physical anthropologists study evolution (e.g. the Human Genome Project- conduct your own original research, do not use this example). Describe the research project and its significance in our understanding of evolution.
Choose a second subfield of anthropology (cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, or archaeology). Explain what the second subfield focuses on, and how anthropologists in this subfield study evolution. Find at least one scholarly source that identifies a specific research project in which anthropologist from this subfield study evolution. For example, an archaeologist may look at how tools have changed through time, and what has caused that change (conduct your own original research, do not use this example). Describe the research project and its significance in our understanding of evolution.
Compare and contrast how physical anthropologists and anthropologists in the subfield you chose study evolution.
PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED SHEET BELOW AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS.
Initial Post Instructions
This week you will read about architecture. The lesson includes information on Roman architecture, which was greatly influenced by the Greeks and Etruscans.
Locate at least two architectural works that were influenced by Greco-Roman architecture. These can be from any time period after the Greco-Roman period but should be from different periods themselves (e.g., one from Renaissance and one from Baroque). Then address the following:
What is the function of each structure?
How does each work exhibit influence of the Greco-Roman period? Is the influence specifically Greek, Etruscan, or Roman – or a combination?
How would you compare the two selected works? Take the role of the evaluative critic.
Use examples from the text, the lesson, and the library to help support your answer. Please remember to provide images and citations to help illustrate your points.
You will need to set aside at least an hour to watch a film and answer the questions provided. Your assignment will be graded based on your understanding and use of information presented in the specific film.
How to submit assignment:
Copy and paste the associated video questions into your word processing program. Watch the video and answer questions using information from the film.
Type your answers in complete sentences after each question. Make sure you support your answers with specific information from the film.
DO NOT simply quote the film transcript to answer the questions, watch the whole film, take notes, and write up the answers IN YOUR OWN WORDS.
The answers are not necessarily going to all be in order in the film, many questions can be answered using information from several parts.
If you just copy and paste the transcript, this is plagiarism. If your answers are the same or similar to another student’s, you will lose all credit for the assignment.
Answers should be single-spaced.
Your entire completed assignment (including the questions) should total a minimum of 750 words.
Save your work in a file and upload your completed answers here in the Turnitin assignment area (accepted file formats: doc, docx, pdf).
