They are 4 questions (All questions are in the attached file, each page has one question).
This Atlantic Monthly article was written nearly a decade ago, but the fact that the US stands alone among WEIRD societies in not providing universal access to healthcare continues to concern many Americans –
Does the U.S. need universal healthcare? Should the United States ensure that everyone living in the country has access to quality health care?
According to the NY Times, I should be able to provide students with 10 free articles per month, but some of you have been asked to pay for a subscription when accessing NY Times articles so I am posting two links here – one to a NY Times article; the other link will take you directly to the American Academy of Pediatrics statement discussed in the Times.
What are the effects of racism on children’s development, starting in the womb? How does the ongoing stress of living with discrimination and racism take a toll on body and mind throughout life? How does racism effect children’s development? Can racism affect children’s health?
Many of the medicines we take — common drugs like Ambien and everyday aspirin — were only ever tested on men. And the unknown side effects for women can be dangerous, even deadly. Alyson McGregor studies the differences between male and female patients; in this TED Talk she explains how the male model became our framework for medical research … and what women and men need to ask their doctors to get the right care for their bodies.
So, why do medicines often have dangerous side effects on women?
You’ve made it this far so you should congratulate yourself, but chances are you’re at least a little anxious about the final exam next week. Maybe you’re on the bubble between a C- and a C and you want to transfer to a 4-year college. Maybe you’re on the bubble between an A- and an A. Whatever your individual case may be, as a student (remember you occupy the status of “student” and right now you’re performing your student role), you probably want to do well during this final week of our short summer semester.
For years I’ve been encouraging students to engage with the subject matter – take an interest in what you’re studying. (That’s true regardless of what you’re studying; if you’re bored by something, you learn little or nothing.) I hope you’ve had fun during this online semester, and I hope you learned something valuable.
Your final exam has two parts – one part consists of 50 multiple-choice questions drawn from the same test banks that your weekly quizzes draw from. You may have some of the same questions; they will certainly be the same type of questions – two choices with each correct answer worth one point.
The other part of the final is a single “capstone” essay question that requires you to connect the dots between the 12 chapters we’ve covered this semester. In this TED Talk, Kimberlé Crenshaw connects some of those dots for you. As she says, if you’re standing in the path of multiple forms of exclusion, you’re likely to get hit by all of them.
Will Crenshaw’s concept – intersectionality – help you connect the dots when you write your capstone essay?
Student’s comment: “Answer this question just like you are doing it for yourself” For sure, the answer will be yes and you just explain a little more and proof that you watch the video.
