This assignment is to research the impact that wolves have had on biodiversity in Yellowstone National Park since their reintroduction there about 30 years ago. Here’s what you need to do:
Go to the course website and in the Recitation dropdown menu find Yellowstone Wolves
Watch the video about the wolf reintroduction first, then read the article from the New York Times that refutes the video.
Next, go online and find evidence that supports either the video or the NYT article (or both or neither). You can accomplish this by going to Google Scholar or Web of Science (accessible through the Baruch Library site) and searching for recent research papers about this topic. What qualifies as recent? The page on the course website says 2010 but I want something even more recent, so set the search for after 2015. A ton of research has been done about this issue so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding sources.
Then you will write a 2-page essay that summarizes the dispute between the ideas in the video and the article and describe what evidence you found to support either side and you may also give your own opinion about where the truth lies. Please cite at least 2 different research papers.
Important note: do not copy and paste whole paragraphs from the research papers. Instead, you should summarize the contents of those papers. Copy/paste is considered bad writing. It’s lazy and gives the impression you don’t understand the material. SUMMARIZE, don’t copy.
The essay should be no more than 2 pages. I mean it. Some students seem to think that if they write more than is asked for they’ll get some kind of extra credit. There is no extra credit. Reading and grading these essays takes a long time. Please keep it within the guidelines.
Your essay documents should be double-spaced, 11 or 12 point font size, and 1″ margins. Also include a bibliography of your sources at the end. The bibliography does not count toward the page limit.
The grade will be based on how well you summarize the issues, how well the research papers address those issues, the quality of your writing, and how well you stick to the style guidelines above. If you think you might have trouble with any of these criteria, please let me know and I can try to help. But do it sooner rather than later.
