Environmental Policy Environmental Policy: An Overview U.S. Environmental Law and Policy International Environmental Policy Approaches to Environmental Policy 17. Atmospheric Science, Air Quality, and Pollution Control The Atmosphere Outdoor Air Quality Ozone Depletion and Recovery Addressing Acid Deposition Indoor Air Quality Instructions: You shoule find any interesting source relevant to the lecture above. (examples: newspaper article, journal article, documentary film, TED talk, NPR podcast, blog post, etc.; NOT your textbook, lectures, or supplemental resources, or materials related to the labs) to cite and evaluate. Avoid Plagiarism: Consult the SUS102 course guide How to Avoid Plagiarism_Citing and Using References.pdf and see below. Additionally we ask that you write everything in your own words and do not use block quotes from sources! Critique the article according to the instructions below, making sure to write at least two sentences addressing each bullet point below. Your submission should sum to at least 400 words. I encourage you to complete the Critical Writing Tutorial and review the Grading Rubric before submitting. • Summary: What is the media piece about? Be specific, use information from the source! If you are vague you will not receive credit. • Enthusiasm: What do you think is valuable from the material and why? Again, be specific and use information from the source! If you are vague you will not receive credit. • Critical evaluation of the author and/or publisher of the cited material (answer each of these for full credit!): o What is the author’s background and/or expertise? Education? Experience? o What is the mission and vision of the organization and/or its underlying values? o What is the purpose of the article? o What biases do you think the author/publisher may have? Be specific and use examples from the source; if you are vague you will not receive credit. Stating the source is not biased is not sufficient. • Skepticism: o What aspects of the issue/topic did the writers neglect, misunderstand, misrepresent, or willfully ignore? o What about their argument confused you? o If you think the article was thorough and not biased, ASK AN ADDITIONAL QUESTION that you think needs to be answered to fully understand the issue. It will not be sufficient to state “I am not skeptical” to get points. o Note: Being skeptical doesn’t mean that the author is wrong (although that can be the case at times). Being skeptical can also mean thinking about possible counterarguments, dimensions of the problem that were not discussed in the article, stakeholders (i.e., people impacted) that were not represented, etc. Try to identify the purpose and scope of the source, and then think about what lies outside that scope that is also relevant. One reason I ask about author bias is that identifying the author’s potential biases can help guide your thinking about what to be skeptical of… • Citation: Provide a citation that includes author, date, and URL using the Council of Science Editors (CSE) Name-Year citation style. o CSE Format references: UWisconsin Writing Center Guide to CSE (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. McGill Library Guide to CSE (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. o Many researchers use citation management applications (e.g., Endnote, Mendeley, Papers, Zotero, etc.) or citation generators (e.g., Citefast, Bibme, Citation Machine, etc.) to manage and format citations. However, you are still responsible for making sure that all of the required information makes it into the citation and that it is formatted according to the CSE Name-Year style.
