To engage students in guided, self-regulated learning on the topic of the influence of human actions on climate change and related health implications associated with northward bound mobilization of disease-carrying, tropical and subtropical vectors

Objectives: To engage students in guided, self-regulated learning on the topic of the influence of human actions on climate change and related health implications associated with northward bound mobilization of disease-carrying, tropical and subtropical vectors (e.g. Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, or triatomine reduviid bug).

General Student Learning Goals:

1. Students will list the neglected tropical diseases that have become endemic to North America.

2. Students will identify which of the neglected tropical diseases are transmitted by an insect vector that was previously endemic to South America.

3. Students will describe the molecular mechanisms associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease they choose to focus on.

4. Students will describe the human innate and adaptive immune response associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease they choose to focus on.

5. Students will describe the influence of environmental factors associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease they choose to focus on.

6. Students will describe the influence of climate change associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease they choose to focus on.

7. Students will describe the influence of human actions on climate change.

Lesson Plan/Assignment: You may receive up to 5 test points in exchange for typing a research report addressing all of the aforementioned 7 general student learning goals. The research paper will be at least 5 single spaced pages at most 10 single spaced pages with. The paper is to be about the facts and your opinion on those facts. List the neglected tropical diseases that have become endemic to North America, identify which of the neglected tropical diseases are transmitted by an insect vector that was previously endemic to South America, describe the molecular mechanisms associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected, describe the human innate and adaptive immune response associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected, describe the influence of environmental factors associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected, describe the influence of climate change associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected and describe the influence of human actions on climate change. Describe whether or not and how climate change can be reversed or slowed. Describe what you can do personally to reverse or slow climate change and the incidence of the neglected tropical disease you selected. The research report should be in 12 point font in Arial or Times New Roman and the margins should not be larger than 1” (normal setting). You may include photos in an appendix at the back of the paper and referenced throughout the text with Figure #1, Figure #2, etc. References should also be in the text following a quoted or paraphrased section, for example, ”some methods of vector control include ovitraps, water storage covers and biological controls” (Tortura, Funke & Case, 2016, pp.658-659). These resources should also be included in the references section for example:

Finally, carefully edit your work ensuring to check your punctuation, grammar and capitalization where appropriate. Include in-text citations for anything you quote or paraphrase and follow APA 6.0 style formatting. The research paper will graded based on the above and following criteria: proper formatting, length of paper, inclusion of references and in text citations, inclusion of all of the required information, your demonstrated level of critical thinking and analysis. Email me your paper in Microsoft Word or PDF format on or prior Friday, December 7, 2018.
