Part 1: Initial Blog Post on a Bioethical Issue
select a Bioethical issue (for example, mandatory DNA fingerprinting, gene therapy trials etc.) and research it further. Find a reliable, useful website that discusses how science interacts with our daily lives. No duplicate websites are permitted. [NOTE: Neither open resources nor open blogs can be used as sources of information; see ‘Researching Information’ within the class for more information on appropriate credible/reliable sources of information]. This is not an opinion assignment; therefore information presented about the Bioethical Issue must be supported by reliable academic resources (facts supported by research). [Not citing a specific reliable academic/scientific resource is an automatic 10 point deduction].
Share the website with the class by writing a full paragraph summary (150 words minimum) of what you have learned or have found particularly helpful when reviewing the website. Do not copy and paste directly from the website. This blogshould be written in your own words. Also, include a link to the website (type the title, highlight it, then, click on the link icon to add the URL) so that your peers may also view it and benefit from the website you have discovered. The blog postmust be directly posted in the classroom; please do not upload a Word document only.
